Darshan’s 50th film Kurukshetra is yet to hit the silver screens and the star has inked deals to star in two films. While his Yajamana, directed by Pon Kumar, is progressing rapidly, there is news about his 52nd film.

Titled Odeya, the film was launched in Mysuru recently much to the delight of Darshan’s fans. Odeya will be directed by MD Sridhar. According to reports, it will be a remake of the Tamil film Veeram, which had featured Ajith in the lead role.
