Dhruva Sarja lends star power to Shreyas Manju's Raana trailer launch
The trailer launch of Shreyas K Manju's second film, Raana, was held on October 23. The film, directed by Nandakishore, is an action-oriented commercial flick, in which Shreyas is paired with Reeshma Nanaiah. Ranjani Bharadwaj will be seen in a pivotal role.
Glimpses from the trailer launch of Raana
Vikram Ravichandran and Dhruva Sarja were among the star guests at the event on October 23. Raana is Shreyas K Manju's third film, but will be the second to release. It is set to be in theatres on November 11.
Shreyas will be in his most massy avatar in Raana
Raana, according to the teaser and now the trailer too, is an action-packed commercial flick, which will see Shreyas in his most massy avatar yet. Shreyas has maintained that action is only an element of the film, and that there's more to Raana than just that. The action blocks, he said, will be reminiscent of the Hollywood flick, John Wick.
Reeshma Nanaiah is the heroine of Raana
Reeshma Nanaiah, who made her film debut with Prem's Ek Love Ya, is the leading lady of Raana. A college talent show winner, Reeshma is currently working on her next, Baana Daariyalli with Ganesh.
Reeshma and Shreyas are Kannada cinema's new jodi
Reeshma and Shreyas are exemplary dancers, which has been put to good use in the song Gully Boy from the film.
Rajani Bharadwaj is also in the film
The model and actress, best known for her debut film Mataash, will be seen in a pivotal role in Raana, details of which are being kept under wraps.
Vikram Ravichandran graces the event
Shreyas' buddy and actor, Vikram Ravichandran, the younger son of Crazy Star V Ravichandran, was a guest at the event. Vikram, who debuted earlier this year with Trivikrama, wished the team all the best.
Pogaru reunion for Dhruva Sarja
For special guest Dhruva Sarja, the Raana trailer launch was a mini Pogaru reunion. Raana is directed by Pogaru maker Nandakishore, while Chandan Shetty, who had composed music for Dhruva's film, is composer here too.
Dhruva is all praise for Shreyas
Dhruva, who is known for his style of dialogue delivery, mouthed a line from the Raana trailer, before going on to praise Shreyas for his dedication in learning gymnastics, working out at the gym and going for dance lessons - all in preparation for his film career - even though he is the son of noted producer K Manju. "He doesn't take anything for granted," said Dhruva.
K Manju presents Raana
Shreyas' father, veteran filmmaker K Manju will present Raana in theatres. The film is releasing on November 11.
