Victory 2 sees Ravi Shankar and Sharan in female avatars
The two actors will don female get ups for the sequel to Victory, directed by Hari Santhosh
Sharan, who is still basking in the success of Raambo 2, is gearing up for the sequel to Victory. The film directed by Hari Santhosh is said to have a lot of surprises in store, which the team plans to reveal one by one before its release. To start with, the teaser released today will reveal a glimpse of Sharan and Ravi Shankar dressed up as women.
"While Sharan has earlier attempted this transformation in Jai Lalitha, this will be Ravi Shankar’s first attempt," says Hari Santhosh, whose film has the two actors in an extended role in this avatar.
"Transforming into a woman for the role is the toughest task and I didn’t want to it just do it for namesake," says Sharan, mentioning that getting into the shoes of a woman was on his to-do list. "I went on a diet for five months, was off rice and dairy products and mostly lived on millets through which I managed to lose five kilograms. I also went through threading and waxing, and had to learn a woman’s body language," he shares.
Director Hari says that this is one of the many highlights of the film. "I used to see Sharan going through at least three hours of makeup session for a particular sequence. Ravi Shankar also made sure to complete the particular portion, where he plays a woman, in one schedule. Both did not take it as a regular affair and that can be seen on screen," he says.
Victory 2, the sequel of Sharan’s first film Victory, has Asmita Sood and Apoorva as the female leads. Produced by Tarun Shivappa, the film has music by Arjun Janya and cinematography by Guru Prashanth Rai.
