The Kannada superstar’s fans can’t get enough of his look in the R Chandru directorial that releases in theatres on March 17
Kabzaa is Real Star Upendra’s film with filmmaker R Chandru. But the film also boasts a massive ensemble cast, including Kiccha Sudeep, whose character Bhargava Bakshi had been revealed by Chandru long ago. Today, though, the superstar’s fans were astounded by just how good he looks in the Kabzaa trailer.
“Veera Madakari ,Kempegowda , Varadhanayaka, And now #BhargavBhakshi. Super Cop reloaded,” wrote Karthik Janani. “Handsome Cop of indian cinema,” was the comment by a user called Kiccha Sidda. “Boss as Bhargav Bakshi is awesome,” wrote another. Social media was flooded with images of Sudeep in his Kabzaa role, with simple captions that read, “Boss 🔥”.
Kabzaa will be in theatres on March 17. The film explores the rise of a gangster who ruled over India, and traverses across five decades, between the 40s and the 80s. The film has a massive ensemble cast, including Shriya Saran, Nawab Shah, John Kokken, Murali Sharma, Posani Murali Krishna, Anoop Revanna, Danish Akthar Saifi, etc. Ravi Basrur fills in as music composer, while AJ Shetty is the cinematographer. It has been reported that Sudeep’s character, commissioner Bhargava Bakshi, is an extended cameo, with the actor getting about 17-18 minutes screen time. Chandru, who had earlier said that Kabzaa would be a two-part tale, has not been talking about the same. When we checked in with him, he said that audiences would have to watch the film and figure out if there will be a sequel and if Sudeep’s character will make it to the second part.
Kabzaa will be Sudeep’s first major release since his last film, Vikrant Rona. The Kannada superstar is yet to announce his next, #Kiccha46, although it has been rumoured that he is collaborating with Maanaadu maker Venkat Prabhu. During the promotions of Vikrant Rona, though, Sudeep had said that he was looking at working with director Anup Bhandari again and the duo had announced films like Billa Ranga Baasha and Ashwatthama.
