JK gives the #RakkammaChallenge a spin

Pretty much every one in tinsel town has been doing his/her version of the Gagang Rakkamma hook step from Vikrant Rona. After all, this is the song that got even leading man Kiccha Sudeep to do his first-ever social media reel. The #RaRaRakkammaChallenge has been hot and happening on social media since the song came out on May 23. But while most decided to reproduce the hook step, choreographed on Sudeep and Jacqueline Fernandez in the original song by Jaani master, actor J Karthik - best known for his portrayal as Raavan on Siya Ke Ram, apart from his work in Kannada cinema - decided to give the dance challenge a twist.

JK, as the actor is popularly known, is quite the fitness freak, never missing a day at the gym, and has been a long-time close associate of Sudeep, even playing on the Sandalwood team at the Celebrity Cricket League led by the Kannada superstar, so, he thought it best to do what he does best for the #RaRaRakkammaChallenge. JK’s version of the viral reel has him doing an abs workout that shows off his incredible core strength. While fans were in awe of his fitness level, some even wondered if his spine was a spring. 

On the work front, JK, will soon be seen in director Vishruth Naik’s Kaada, in which he plays a serial killer. The actor was also set to be a part of the Mithali Raj biopic with Taapsee Pannu, but had to excuse himself later when scheduling issues cropped up. He will now return to Hindi television with an antagonist role in the upcoming Alibaba – Dastaaan-E-Kabul. Directed by Maan Singh, the show is inspired by the tale of Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves and will be shot in Ladakh. Produced by Peninsula Pictures, Alibaba – Dastaan-E-Kabul will mark JK’s return to Hindi TV after five years. In Bollywood, meanwhile, the actor was last seen in Pushpa I Hate Tears. His next release in Kannada will be Iravan, which also stars Advithi Shetty.
