Kannada star Darshan is one of the busiest actors in Sandalwood with a number of films needing his attention. However, that doesn’t deter him from launching or unveiling projects of his colleagues in the film industry.
Recently, Darshan launched Khadak amidst a lot of fanfare. He sounded the clapboard to mark the beginning of proceedings. The star did the honours as he shares a good rapport with the film’s hero, Dharma Keerthiraj.
Directed by Raja Rathna, Khadak is being bankrolled by Valli and Siddharamaiah under their banner. Anusha Rai is playing the lead opposite Dharma and Kabir Duhan Singh will be seen playing the main villain in the film. Krupakar is composing music for this venture with Shankar cranking the camera. Shooting commenced right after the pooja and we hear that a major part of the film will be shot in and around Bengaluru.
Meanwhile, Darshan is gearing up for his next film, Robert. The film will go on the floors on April 19 this year. The filmmakers are planning to hold the photo shoot right after Ugadi. The first schedule, which will begin in Bengaluru, will go on for 45 days followed by the other schedules that will happen in various locations in Chennai, Visakhapatnam and Hyderabad.
Darshan’s character in the film is named Robert and director Tharun Sudhir has put an end to all guesswork by pointing out that the character will have nothing to do with the star’s cameo role in Chowka.
Darshan is currently busy with Odeya, which is progressing at a brisk pace. A schedule of this film was shot recently in Mysuru and reports say that the next schedule is progressing in Hyderabad. Apparently, Odeya will have Darshan in two different roles. Directed by MD Sridhar, Odeya stars Raghavi Thimmayya opposite Darshan. The film is bankrolled by Darshan’s close friend Sandesh Nagraj under the banner Sandesh Productions.
