The Darshan starrer Kurukshetra will be one of the most expensive films to be made in Sandalwood in recent times, say sources close to the film unit. Being Darshan’s landmark 50th film, it is based on Mahabharata, add sources. Naganna, who had wielded the megaphone for Darshan’s Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna in 2012, will be donning the director’s robe for Kurukshetra as well and popular producer Muniratna will be bankrolling the project.

According to latest reports, talks are on with the Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi to play an important role in the movie but nothing has been finalised as yet. When enquired about the role Vivek was offered, we were told that he might be playing the role of Lord Krishna. The photo shoot of Kurukshetra happened at the Ramoji Film City recently with the star taking part in it. Reports have it that he will be playing the role of Duryodhana in the film. Likely to go on to the floors next month, the film may also have V Ravichandran in a crucial role.

Vivek is currently busy with the Tamil film, Vivegam, which has Ajith in the lead. Vivek, who will be seen as an antagonist, has as meaty role to play in this film. The shooting is in the final stages with the Vivegam team planning to release it in August this year. Incidentally, Vivek had made his debut in the Tamil film industry with the Mani Ratnam directorial Raththa Sarithram. If the star goes on to sign on the dotted line to star in Kurukshetra, it would mark his debut in Sandalwood.

Darshan’s 49th film, Tarak, went on the floors in March this year and is progressing well with the shooting happening in Bengaluru and some foreign locations. The film has Rashmika Madanna and Sruthi Hariharan playing his lead pairs.
