The audio launch of Damayanthi is scheduled to happen on November 12 to coincide with its lead star Radhika Kumaraswamy’s birthday. The news has been confirmed officially and we also hear that Darshan will be gracing the event. The makers of Damayanthi impressed the star with the film by screening the rushes for him and the star reportedly praised the team for the good quality work.

Damayanthi, set in the 1980s, is directed and produced by Navarasan. It is touted to be heroine-centric film and Radhika will appear in three different get-ups. Reports say that she has done a lot of homework for her character. The story revolves around Damayanthi, daughter of Rajendra Varma from the Devapura royal family, who is a doctor by profession. Her whole family is killed by her distant relative for money and the plot is about how she takes revenge after 15 to 20 years with the help of the hero and friends.

On the film, director-producer Navarasan said to Cinema Express in an interview earlier, “Such types of films are doing well these days. So I think this is the best time to make a film like this. I’m quite confident that the film has all the necessary elements to cater to the national audience. People want to see something new. This film is an attempt to satisfy that need.”

As it is a period film, it needed oodles of VFX and so it took a couple of months for the filmmakers to complete it. Besides Radhika in the title role, Damayanthi also stars Bhajarangi Loki, Anusha Ravi, Vishal’s dad GK Reddy, Raj Bahadhur, Sadhu Kokila and Tabla Nani in important roles. This Kannada film will also be released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam considering the universal appeal of the subject.

While Darshan will be the chief guest for the audio launch of the Kannada version of Damayanthi, the event will be graced by actors Vishal and Arya for the Tamil version and Anushka Shetty for the Telugu version. We also hear that Mohanlal is expected to launch the Malayalam version’s audio.
