The shooting and post-production of Not out were wrapped up recently. Now, the makers have headed to the Censor Board for clearance. Meanwhile, the team released the first motion poster of the film in the presence of politician Puttanna (MLC) and Kiss director AP Arjun.

The film, directed by Ambarisha, has a tagline that translates to, ‘A judgement from an invisible umpire.’ “The screenplay is based on the tiger-sheep game, which is popular in the village in the borders of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Andhra Pradesh," explains Ambarisha. 

While Ajay Prithvi plays an ambulance driver in his debut, Rachna Inder will be seen as a nurse. Billed as a dark comedy, the film also has Ravi Shankar as a part of the lead cast. “He will appear in a never-before-seen role and is the main pillar of this story. Suddhi also plays an important role,” adds the filmmaker.

Backed by V Ravikumar and Shamshuddin under the Rashtrakuta Pictures banner, Not Out has music by Judah Sandy and cinematography by Halesh. Not Out has Gopalkrishna Deshpande, Salman, Govindegowda, and Prashant Siddi as part of the ensemble.

The makers have plans to release the film by this year-end or by early 2023.
