The film will reunite the Challenging Star with the team of Yajamana, including director V Harikrishna and producers Shylaja Nag and B Suresha.
Fans of Challenging Star Darshan have been waiting with bated breath to hear about his next, the tentatively titled #D55, his 55thfilm, which will reunite him with the Yajamana team. The film, we hear, will be directed by composer-turned-filmmaker V Harikrishna and be backed by Shylaja Nag and B Suresha for Media House Studio. And now, the team is ready for their first big announcement. Come Friday, the team of #D55 will announce the title of their prestigious next on the occasion of Ganesha Chaturthi.
While team #D55 has been tight-lipped about the project, expectations have skyrocketed, given Yajamana’s good showing at the box office. In Yajamana, Darshan was paired with Rashmika Mandanna, while Tanya Hope was seen in a pivotal role. Thakur Anoop Singh, who played one the main antagonists, was lauded for his Kannada dialogue delivery. The songs by V Harikrishna were chartbusters, especially Basanni Ba and Ondu Munjane.
The film, about an oil mafia scam, was co-directed by V Harikrishna and Pon Kumaran and had a massive ensemble cast, including Devaraj, Dhananjaya, Sadhu Kokila, Yashwanth Shetty, P Ravishankar, Mandya Ramesh, etc., with stars like Prajwal Devaraj, late Chiranjeevi Sarja, Prem and Sharan making special appearances in the song Shivanandi.
The makers were earlier planning an August 15 title reveal for #D55, which didn’t pan out. It would be interesting to see what’s in store on September 10. The husband-wife duo of B Suresha and Shylaja Nag are known for producing popular Kannada films and TV serials and are partners on Harikrishna’s audio company D Beats Music World.
V Harikrishna’s association with Darshan goes back a long time, having composed for the actor’s films like Gaja, Navagraha, Porki, Boss, Sarathi, Chingari, Bulbul, Brindavana, Ambareesha, Mr Airavata, Jaggu Dada, Yajamana, and, more recently, only the BGM of Roberrt.
