One of the highest budget movies in the Kannada film industry, Kurukshetra, started to roll early this month and reports suggest that the filmmakers are still in the process of roping in the stars.
While Darshan will be seen playing Duryodhana in the film, there are reports that Sonu Sood has been approached to play Arjuna.
The Bollywood star is not new to the Kannada film industry as he had made his debut way back in 2011 with Vishnuvardhana.
The star cast of the magnum opus includes Arjun Sarja, Nikhil Kumaraswamy, Ravichandran, Hari Priya and Adithi and director Naganna is still in the process of finalising actors for various roles.
Kurukshetra, touted to be Darshan’s 50th film, kick started early in August with the Chief Minister of Karnataka, Siddharamaiah, flagging off the proceedings.
Funded by producer Muniratna on the budget of about Rs. 100 crore, the film will be directed by Naganna. V Harikrishna is composing music for this flick.
The shooting of this film has commenced on extravagant sets erected for the purpose at the Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad and will go on for the next few weeks, say sources.
According to reports doing rounds, the film will be released in both 2D as well as 3D formats.
It may be mentioned here that a few days ago, there were reports that Bollywood actor and TV serial artiste Danish Akthar has been roped in to play Bhima in the film. Confirming the news, producer Muniratna had said that the actor was picked up for the role as he had the apt physique for the film.
Reports suggest that the team intends to shoot continuously for the next 100 days so as to ensure that it hits the marquee for Sankranti next year.
