The team Rona will give fans yet another peak into the ‘World of Vikrant Rona’ at 11.05 am
At 11.05 am, today, the team of Kichcha Sudeep’s much-anticipated Vikrant Rona will release the first glimpse of the film’s Dead Man’s Anthem on the occasion of the leading man’s birthday. In the time since its announcement, the team, led by director Anup Bhandari, has been tight-lipped about the story and characters of the film, revealing only the tiniest morsels of information to keep up the excitement surrounding it. Fans of the actor, whose last theatrical release was in 2019, have been waiting eagerly for an announcement regarding the film’s release and are hopeful of a clue along with the first glimpse today, given that they had earlier announced that it would hit screens on August 19 in 3D.
Vikranth Rona, which was initially launched as Phantom and then rechristened, is Anup Bhandari’s first directorial with Sudeep. The new title was announced at a major event held at the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, earlier this year, to coincide with Sudeep’s milestone 24 years in films. Anup and Sudeep were to collaborate on a film called Billa Ranga Bhasha, but decided to go ahead with this project, a thriller set in an earlier time, instead. After initial delays caused by the pandemic, the team of this film were among the first to resume work with a bio-bubble set up at a studio in Hyderabad, where they created the ‘World of Vikrant Rona’.
Even as much of the mystery surrounding the project is yet to be unveiled, what is known is that Anup’s brother Nirup Bhandari, Ravishankar Gowda, Neetha Ashok and Jacqueline Fernandez will be seen in pivotal roles along with Sudeep. Ajaneesh Loknath fills in as composer.
Since they began collaborating on films, Anup has also done extensive work on the Kannada version of Dabangg 3, as lyricist and singer.
