The release of Kannada actor Darshan’s next, Kranti, is widely seen as a massive celebration – one that his fans intend to enjoy like a festival. Rachita Ram, the leading lady of the film, who has seen the fan craze surrounding Kranti decided to speak about this at a recent public event. Kranti is releasing in theatres on January 26, Republic Day, which, she added, will be Krantiyotsava for Darshan’s fans. This relatively harmless observation, though, has landed the actress in trouble now.

Claiming that Rachita’s comments are anti-national and against the Constitution, a complaint has been filed against her in the Maddur police station of Mandya seeking action against her. Kranti is Rachita’s first release since Monsoon Raaga. It is her third film with Darshan in whose Bulbul she made her filmi debut. Rachita has been very vocal about her excitement in being a part of the V Harikrishna directorial. While she loved acting in the film, the offscreen camaraderie with the entire team, especially during the promotional tour, has been unforgettable, she says.

While she has not spoken much about her role in the film, Darshan has said that even though she is the romantic interest, the character is not limited to providing the necessary glamour quotient. Rachita, he said, has a strong role that is pivotal to the narrative. On the film front, the actress will also be seen in Abishek Ambareesh’s next, Bad Manners, which is a relaunch of sorts for him. Also on her roster of films are Love Me or Hate Me with Darling Krishna, Matinee with Sathish Ninasam and Shabari Searching for Ravana, among others.

Kranti, produced by Shylaja Nag and B Suresha for Media House Studio, and directed by V Harikrishna, releases in theatres across Karnataka on January 26. Certified U/A, it boasts a massive ensemble cast including Achyuth Kumar, P Ravi Shankar, Tarun Raj Arora, Sampath Raj, Nimika Ratnakar, V Ravichandran, Samyukta Hornad, Vainidhi Jagdish, Girija Lokesh, Sumalatha Ambareesh, among others.
