Abishek Ambareesh’s collaboration with director S. Mahesh has been garnering a lot of attention from the Kannada cinema patrons. Thanks to the cryptic yet intense first glimpse of the film, in which Abishek bore a gritty and bloodied look, the project has piqued the interests of the audience.
And to make things all the more interesting, the makers have now revealed Abishek’s first official look in the film: taking to social media, the team shared the exciting update on the birthday of Sumalatha Ambareesh (Abishek Ambareesh’s mother and fellow actor).
Tentatively titled AA04, the upcoming film will see Abishek Ambareesh don the avatar of a unique warrior. Clad in a metal body suit and armoury and brandishing a mighty sword, the young actor looks all geared up to take on this challenging role. Reportedly, director S. Mahesh was keen on making the best use of Abishek’s physical stature in the story and has referred to historical elements from before the 15th century to put the story together.
While the story, which is written by T.K Dayanand of Bell Bottom fame, comprises historical references, the film is likely to be a fictional account of the warrior. Rockline Venkatesh produces the film under Rockline Entertainments.
S. Mahesh Kumar, who previously directed the Sriimurali starrer Madhagaja, is said to be considering actors from different industries to play crucial parts in his film. As the pre-production gets underway, the team is ensuring that everything falls in place before the project goes on floors towards the end of this year. K.G.F: Chapter 2’s Ravi Basrur has scored the music with Suresh Arumugam coming on board as the editor.
Abishek Ambareesh will be seen playing a cop in Duniya Suri’s gangster flick Bad Manners and is expected to begin work on cinematographer/director Krishna’s Kaali. The latter is an intense love story set against the backdrop of the Cauvery riots that took place in the early 1990 and reportedly centred on the romance between a Kannada boy and a Tamil girl.
