Back in 2017, when KRG Studios was launched, it was meant to be an offshoot of Hombale Productions – the banner that has made films like Yuvarathnaa, KGF, Salaar, etc. – to dabble with distribution of cinema across Karnataka. The venture was headed by Karthik Gowda, executive producer at Hombale Productions, with filmmaker and stylist Yogi G Raj joining him soon after. Since then, they have taken on the responsibility of distributing over 20-odd films and are, today, a force to reckon with in that segment.

In 2020, KRG Studios launched KRG Connects, a movie marketing unit and ventured into film production as well, their maiden project being the Rohit Padaki directorial Rathnan Prapancha, which had Dhananjaya in the lead. Released directly on OTT on Amazon Prime Video in October 2021, the film, which also starred Reba Monica John, Pramod, Shruthi, Achyuth Kumar, Ravishankar Gowda, Anu Prabhakar Mukherjee, among others, turned out to a stupendous success for the banner.

And now, they are ready to announce their second venture. On Friday, KRG studios will announce details about their new production. The social media post for this featured a poster with a police jeeping heading along the highway to Belagavi, with a tagline ‘Rakṣhasara Rakṣhasa Arakṣhaka’. The Belagavi reference, of course, enthused fans, who are now eagerly awaiting to see who will headline this project. While Hombale Productions is known to make big-budget A-list hero films, KRG Studios began with a smaller venture, so it would be interesting to see who they get on board this time around. The poster, of course, got fans to speculate whether the makers would repeat Dhananjaya in the lead, with some commenting that Rakshara Rakshaka can only be Century Star Shivarajkumar, based also on the fact that the team had announced a second film with Rohit Padaki at the Bhajarangi 2 pre-release event. Some even wondered if it could be a film with Pramod, who was quite literally the scene stealer in Rathnan Prapancha as Udaal Babu Rao.
