The muhurtha puja will be held on the occasion of Vijayadashami, with shooting to start thereafter.
A few weeks ago, on the occasion of Ganesha Chaturthi, the team of Challenging Star Darshan’s next which is his 55th film (#D55), got its title – Kranti. The film is a reunion of sorts for the actor and the makers of his film Yajamana. Produced by Shylaja Nag and B Suresha under their banner Studio Media House, Kranti will be composer-turned-filmmaker V Harikrishna’s second time in the director’s chair.
In the time since, there has been radio silence from the team, and now we hear that they are ready to go on floors. According to reports, Kranti will kick off with a muhurtha puja on October 15, on the occasion of Vijayadashami, with shooting set to start shortly after.
Team Kranti has been tight-lipped about developments surrounding the project, and barring the fact that V Harikrishna is yet again doubling up as music composer as well, precious little is known. However, given that their previous venture, Yajamana, was an out-and-out commercial film, which paired Darshan with Rashmika Mandanna and had Tanya Hope in a pivotal role, it is expected that the team will only go bigger and better this time around.
In fact, earlier this week, the buzz in Gandhinagar circles was that actor R Madhavan was set to make his Kannada debut opposite an A-list star. Soon enough, the rumor gathered steam, with fans speculating that the Minnale actor will be the antagonist in Kranti, given that it is being made as a pan-Indian film with versions in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi.
It would also be interesting to see who gets chosen as the leading lady of Kranti, considering that filmmakers have, in the past, introduced Urvashi Rautela, Asha Bhat, etc., or teamed him up with local talent to make a fresh pairing, be it with Rashmika, Rachita Ram, Shanvi Srivastava, Sruthi Hariharan or Sanah Thimmayyah, among others.
