Excitement builds around Vijay Kumar’s upcoming film, tentatively titled VK-29 and helmed by director Jadeshaa K Hampi. Billed as an action-packed period family drama, the film is set to commence its shooting schedule by the end of April. This much-talked-about venture, with a script by director Jadeshaa, is said to be inspired by K Shivaram Karanth’s classic Chomana Dudi.

Amidst the buzz surrounding VK-29’s announcement and its poster released during the auspicious muhurath function, which caught attention, new revelations have emerged, adding an element of excitement. According to our reliable source, joining the ensemble cast is none other than the versatile actor Raj B Shetty. The director of Ondu Motteya Kathe and Garuda Gamana Vrishabha Vahana is equally noted for his performances in films like Toby and Swathi Mutthina Male Haniye. The actor, who is shooting for Arjun Janya’s directorial debut debut, 45, is also part of some Malayalam films, most notably the upcoming Mammootty
starrer Turbo.

Our sources reveal that director Jadeshaa, who has crafted characters for Vijay Kumar, and Raj’s inclusion will bring an additional dimension to the narrative. While specifics regarding Raj B Shetty’s role remain under wraps, speculation abounds about whether he’ll portray an antagonist.

While people enjoyed watching Raj and Rishab Shetty’s combination in Garuda Gamana Vrishabha Vahana, it’s equally interesting to witness the combination between Vijay Kumar and Raj B Shetty on the big screen for the first time, which will surely be a highlight. More details on this will be revealed once the makers begin shooting and the actors join the sets.

Meanwhile, the team has finalised locations for VK-29, including Kolar and Gudibande. As for the other cast, the team announced Rachita Ram as the female lead. The film will also feature Vijay’s daughter, Ritanya, in her acting debut, opposite Daredevil Musthafa fame Shishir. While the makers are yet to announce the music director, they have roped in Swamy as the film’s cinematographer.
