The most awaited film in the Kannada film industry currently, Kurukshetra, is set for a massive release this Friday and the expectations are soaring high. This film is produced by Muniratna, who said that it is his most ambitious project. In an interaction with the media, he reportedly said, “As a producer of Kannada films, if I ever want to leave a mark, I want to do only with a film like Kurukshetra. Releasing a 3D version only added more colours to my dream.”

Another interesting fact about Kurukshetra, which is based on the Mahabharata, is that Muniratna is credited for its story. To this, the producer said, “The question of me taking the story credit for Kurukshetra will be answered only after the release on August 9. There is no point talking about it now.”

Pointing out that the story of Mahabharata cannot be changed, Muniratna said that he simply wanted to narrate the tale from Duryodhana’s point of view.

Darshan plays Duryodhana in this mythological drama. The film also has the late star Ambareesh, Arjun Sarja, Sonu Sood, V Ravichandran, Bharathi Vishnuvardhan, Sneha, Hariprriya, Meghana Raj and P Ravi Shankar in pivotal roles. While the shooting of this film was completed long ago, it has been in the post-production mode due to the extensive VFX works involved.

Kurukshetra, which is directed by Naganna, has an impressive technical crew as well. Jayanan Vincent has cranked the camera for this film with Jo Ni Harsha doing the editing. Inspired by the poem Gadhayuddha, penned by the Kannada poet Ranna, the screenplay for the film was written by JK Bharavi.

Being a high budget film and a mythological, Kurukshetra will be released in various languages, including Kannada, Malayalam, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and others.

The shooting for Kurukshetra commenced last year on sets erected for the purpose at Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad. Most parts of the film were shot on this set, which was built on a budget of several crores of rupees.
