Off late, the trend seems to be that Kannada films are aiming for a pan Indian appeal. The Yash starrer KGF will be releasing in five languages – Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi – on December 21, and now we hear that Sudeep’s Phailwan will be out in seven languages – Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Hindi, Bhojpuri and Marathi.

On the progress of Phailwan, we hear that the shooting is reaching the final stages and the post-production work will begin soon. Reports indicate that Phailwan will hit the marquee in March next year and that the filmmakers are working towards that deadline.

Produced and directed by S Krishna, this film marks the second time collaboration between him and actor Sudeep after the massive success of Hebbuli last year. Incidentally, Krishna will be making his debut as producer with Phailwan by bankrolling it under his banner, RRR Productions.

Sudeep plays a professional boxer in this flick, and being his first ever sports drama he reportedly underwent a lot of training to learn the nuances of martial arts. The actor flew down to Thailand where he trained rigorously under the guidance of experts.

The film’s star cast also includes Suniel Shetty, Sharath Lohithashwa, Sushant Singh and Akanksha Singh. Interestingly, this film will mark Suniel Shetty’s debut in the Kannada film industry. Arjun Janya has been roped in to compose the tunes for Phailwan while Karunakar will be cranking the camera.

Sudeep’s last film release was The Villain, in which he had shared screen space with another major Sandalwood star, Shiva Rajkumar, and which turned out to be a big hit. Sudeep is currently busy with Kottigobba 3, for which he has penned the story apart from playing the lead role. The versatile actor will be seen in the Telugu flick Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, in which he plays a pivotal role. Sudeep will share screen space with mega star Chiranjeevi and Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan in the film.
