Darshan’s character in his upcoming film with director Tharun Sudhir is the hot topic of discussion among his fans. It has been revealed that the star’s character in the film is named Robert, which had given rise to speculations that it is an extension of his cameo role in the hit movie Chowka that released last year. However, the director has clarified that it is not so. While the character is named Robert, it will have nothing to do with Chowka, we hear. The groundwork for the project is currently underway, with the poster all set to be released on Deepavali, November 6. The title of the film will be revealed in December and the regular shooting will commence from January onwards.
Meanwhile, Darshan’s 50th film Kurukshetra is getting ready for release. The film is in the final stages of post-production and may get a release date very soon. The star plays Duryodhana in this historical based on the epic Mahabharata and the story is told from his perspective. One of the most expensive films to ever be made in the Kannada film industry, Kurukshetra is bankrolled by Muniratna under his banner KCN Movies. This historical has a bevy of stars in the cast including Ambareesh, Arjun Sarja, V Ravichandran, Bharathi Vishnuvardhan, Sneha, Hariprriya, Meghana Raj and P Ravi Shankar.
Darshan’s Yajamana is also gearing up for release with just two songs needing to be canned. The film is in the post-production stages and Darshan will start dubbing. While he plays the lead role in the film, it has Rashmika Mandanna playing the woman lead along with Tanya Hope as the second heroine. Dhananjay, Thakur Anoop Singh and Devaraj will be seen playing significant roles in this flick. Bankrolled by Shylaja Nag and B Suresha, the film is directed by Pon Kumaran. Yajamana is also slated for release later this year. Besides these films, Darshan also has Odeya in the pipeline.
