As promised, the makers of Challenging Star Darshan’s next, Kranti, unveiled a new poster of the film on the auspicious occasion of Varamahalakshmi festival. This time too, they’ve retained the red shade that’s been used for the title reveal as well, which is apt given that the film is about a revolution. The new poster that came out minutes ago, has Darshan all suited up and dribbling a basketball, with the words ‘Learn to fight alone’ emblazoned next to it.
Fans, of course, are thrilled with Darshan’s “stunning” look in the poster and are now busy dissecting it for hidden details in the background. Kranti is Darshan’s second film with team Yajamana, including composer-director V Harikrishna and producers Shylaja Nag and B Suresha. The film reunites him with his Bulbul and Ambareesha co-star Rachita Ram. According to sources, Darshan plays an NRI in the film, who returns to Karnataka to save a government Kannada medium school. The subject had fans wondering how the film could work for a pan-India audience, but the makers have remained tight-lipped and not responded to this ever.
Meanwhile, shortly before unveiling the new poster, producer Shylaja Nag had updated Darshan fans that the film is about 95% done and that dubbing is ongoing. While thanking the actor’s fans for going all out in promoting the film with processions across the state, which she reiterated they were doing out of their love for Darshan and was not sponsored by the team, she also promised them that the publicity campaign for Kranti will be massive.
Kranti, according to sources will be a 2022 release, although there’s no official word on when. Industry insiders say that a late November or December release is likely, given that Puneeth Rajkumar’s Gandhada Gudi is coming out in late October on the occasion of his first death anniversary. Other Kannada films may not come to theatres around that time, as a mark of respect for the late actor and his dream project.
