It's less than three weeks to go until the grand worldwide release of Kabzaa and the internet is currently swamped with news regarding the film. Billed as the next big thing from Kannada cinema, fans and moviegoers have a lot of hopes pinned on Kabzaa which promises to be a bona fide big-screen experience. And with Real Star Upendra playing a mighty gangster in the period action-drama and Kiccha Sudeep, Shriya Saran and several others joining him in the cause, there's a lot in store for the audience.

The makers, too, are leaving no stone unturned in spreading the word about the film and are currently engrossed heavily in the pre-release promotions. Having released three songs already, team Kabzaa is now gearing up for the all-important trailer launch which is scheduled to take place in Mumbai, on March 2nd. 

Amid all this, a few interesting details regarding the plot of Kabzaa come to the fore to amplify the excitement. In a recent interview with a media outlet, a cast member of Kabzaa, who happens to play Upendra's mother in the film, shared a few intriguing points about her role in the film. 

"I have two sons in the film and the older son passes away. Kiccha Sudeep plays another important character, he isn't my on-screen son though," said the actor.

When asked whether her character would pack a punch in the film and if there are twists to watch out for, she said, "Speaking of twists, it's Upendra sir's character that boasts it all. My character is quite soft, so to speak, but the audience will be drawn to her boldness in the story and the fact that she dares for her children. Upendra sir's character, too, has these shades - the audience will be hooked by the amazing transformation of his character. I won't divulge more but the film will definitely exceed expectations."

In a recent interaction with the media, Shriya Saran spilt that she plays a mother of two in Kabzaa and with the other cast member divulging about her role, could it be that she plays the older/aged version of the former? And with a few posts on social media speculating that Upendra plays a dual role in the film, and that of both the father and the son, could Shriya Saran be playing the father character's spouse - if this were to be accurate, Shriya also plays Upendra's mother in the film! 

At this point, all this is conjecture and speculation but who knows, there could be some truth in this rambling! Regardless, it is safe to say that the mother character plays a huge role in shaping the hero in Kabzaa. The teaser of the film, which was released a couple of months ago, does reveal a rags-to-riches kind of rise of the protagonist but it is now a matter of time before things become clearer. Kabzaa is out in theatres on March 17th.
