The Kirik Party hero Rakshit Shetty will have three film releases this year and is busy with these assignments, according to reports. The latest about his acting career is that he will be starring in the sequel to Kirik Party.
The film was one of the biggest hits in his career and there are naturally a lot of expectations over its sequel being made. We hear from sources that though the sequel wouldnâ€™t be a continuation of Kirik Party, it would be set in a college campus just like its prequel. Rishab Shetty, who had directed the prequel, will be wielding the megaphone for the sequel as well.
While Rishab and Rakshit Shetty have registered the title Kirik Party 2, we hear that the project would go on to the floors only next year. Rakshit Shetty is concentrating in Avane Srimannarayana right now in which he plays the title role. The film is being directed by Sachin.
Apart from playing the lead role in this film, he has also co-written it along with Rishab Shetty, Abhijith Mahesh, Kiran Yakssha, Dhananjay Ranjan, Kiranraj K and Chandrajith P B.
Shanvi Srivastava is paired up with Rakshit Shetty in Avane Srimannarayana, with Achyuth Kumar roped in for a pivotal role. Sources say that Rakshit will be sporting an eight-pack in this flick and is working towards it.
Set in the 1980s, the film is about a corrupt police officer and the terror he unleashes in the minds of the people living a town called Amaravathi. The shooting of Avane Srimannarayana began in May last and it is slated to hit the marquee in March this year. Made on a budget of Rs. 30 crores, it is produced jointly by H. K. Prakash, Rakshit Shetty and Pushkara Mallikarjunaiah.
