The phrase 'Gumma banda Gumma Gumma...' echoes in the background of the 30-second video clip released by the makers of Phantom. Sharing the clip, Sudeep said, “This isn't a teaser, it's the excitement of me starting the shoot.” The first lines in the clip also showed the actor's happiness in getting back to the film sets.
Directed by Anup Bhandari, the shooting of the film was resumed at Annapurna Studios, Telangana, on July 16. A glimpse of a night-shot featuring Sudeep as Vikranth Rona was also showcased. The shot shows the actor in a boat amid a forest with a little girl, and in the background is a flaming torch. The scene for the adventure drama is accompanied by a thrilling background score by music director B Ajaneesh Loknath, along with artwork by art director Shivakumar. William David has captured the frames.
According to makers, who have begun the shooting with all safety norms in place, there is a sense of excitement amongst the team members. Sharing the video on Twitter and Instagram on July 19, Sudeep also said, “Putting on makeup today was an awesome feel. Felt I was in an elaborate holiday away from my passion. A passion called cinema. So here iam being Vikranth Rona again.”
The film is produced by Manjunath Gowda under the banner, Shalini Artss. The team has taken a limited crew from Bengaluru for the 50-day schedule at the studio, where they have created different huge set-ups at different floors.
Meanwhile, the makers are said to be in the process of finalising the female lead and a couple of actors who will be seen in prominent roles.
