Kranti, which is all set to release in theatres on January 26, 2023, is Rachita Ram’s third collaboration with Darshan. The actress, considered one of the finest in Kannada cinema today, began her filmi journey with the Challenging Star in 2013’s Bulbul. She then got to work with him again the very next year in Ambareesha, but since then, no other filmmaker attempted to recreate this hit jodi until composer-director V Harikrishna brought them back together for Kranti.
Speaking about his co-star during the promotions of the film, which Darshan has just kick-started with digital media interviews, the actor was all praise for Rachita. “Rachita has been ruling Kannada cinema for the last 10 years. There is a vast difference between the Rachita of Bulbul and the Rachita of Kranti. She has grown immensely as an artiste, so much so that I told her that I am a little scared of acting with her – the kind of reactions she gives in every scene is not easy to match. It’s amazing to see how far she has come as an actor,” said Darshan.
The Challenging Star added that Rachita’s role in Kranti is not for the glam element in a commercial movie and that her character is just as important to the narrative as is everyone else’s. Darshan said that the film has a massive ensemble cast, each of who has a role that adds value to the story.
Kranti is a film that deals with the education system, wherein Darshan plays an NRI who returns to save the government Kannada medium school he’d studied at. The film is slated to release in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi, but Darshan has been categoric that he will promote only the Kannada version and will not travel across the country for the dubbed versions.
