The narrative of the film follows certain real-life instances that occured during the pandemic.
He is yet to make his film debut, but Dheeren Ramkumar, the grandson of the late Kannada matinee idol Rajkumar and son of veteran actor Ramkumar, is already making inroads in Sandalwood. The actor, whose Shiva 143 is ready for release is set to start working on a thriller called Night Curfew, a film set during the pandemic lockdown. According to the makers, Dheeren will be seen in the role of a doctor in the Ravindra Venshi-directed Night Curfew.
Ravindra’s film, which marks his fourth as a director, will apparently be based on many real-life incidents that have occurred since the pandemic broke out. While an official announcement about the project is yet to be made, an Indian Express report states that the team is looking at going on floors in October, with a February 2022 release in sight. More details about the film and the rest of the cast are expected when the film is formally launched.
Meanwhile, as Dheeren awaits the release of the Anil Kumar-directed Shiva 143 in which he is paired with Manvitha Kamath, the buzz is that he is already in talks with the film’s production house, Jayanna Combines, for another collaboration. A script has apparently been finalized, and the banner is on the lookout for a suitable director to helm it. An official announcement on this project can be expected thereafter.
While it is yet to be seen what Dheeren brings to the table as an actor, he has been giving his social media followers glimpses of another prowess. The young actor, as it turns out, is quite the singer and occasionally posts videos of himself crooning classics. This, of course, comes as no surprise, since his grandfather, the late Rajkumar and his uncle Puneeth Rajkumar are also accomplished singers. In fact, Dheeren’s sister, Dhanya, who is also set to make her film debut soon, with Ninna Sanihake sings quite well, as was evidenced in the cover version of Nee Parichaya.
