Rustum, a film of many firsts for Rachita Ram
The actor is paired opposite Vivek Oberoi in Ravi Varma’s directorial debut, which stars Shivarajkumar in the lead
Looks like Ravi Varma has everything going for his directorial debut, Rustum. The film, made under Jayanna Productions, brings together a power-packed cast, including Shivarajkumar, Shraddha Srinath and Bollywood hero, Vivek Oberoi. This film will mark the latter’s Kannada debut.
The latest to join the crew is none other than 'Dimple Queen' Rachita Ram. Rustum is another addition to the actor’s busy schedule. Both Vivek and Rachita will be joining the sets in August. Quite naturally, Rachita is all smiles about the latest film in her kitty. “It’s sheer luck that I bagged the project and I’m starring opposite Vivek in his Kannada debut. This film also marks my first association with director Ravi Varma, and producers Jayanna and Bogendra. In addition, Kannada superstar, Shivarajkumar, is also part of Rustum. I’ve grown up admiring him, and I am so happy to be working in a project that features him. That’s another first,” she says.
The shoot for the film, which brings in diverse actors including Mahendran, Telugu actor Harish Uthaman and newbie Arjun Gowda is on full-swing. The film’s music is composed by Anoop Seelin and the cinematography is by Mahendra Simha. Rustum is the latter's second project after Tagaru.
