Published: 02nd December 2018

A known name in South India and Bollywood, stunt master Ravi Varma will be marking his directorial debut with Rustum. With decades of experience as an action choreographer under his belt, it’s no surprise that Ravi is working on staging some very special stunts in his first-ever directorial.

The film, starring Shivarajkumar in the lead, is in its last leg of shoot, and the team will resume the last schedule in Bihar from tomorrow. Sharing the latest photographs from the film with us, Ravi says that the first week or so of the last schedule will solely focus on getting the fight sequences right, the cost of which is estimated to be over a crore. We also hear that the director plans to shoot some thrilling chase sequences with the lead actor.

“This particular sequence, which is slotted for the first part of the second half of the film, involves heavy vehicles — cars and tempo travellers — and will be shot with four cameras from different angles. We are also making use of drones. With this we will be done with the film’s shoot. This for sure, will be one of the best stunt sequences in Shivarajkumar's career,” the director states.

In addition to Shivarajkumar, Vivek Oberoi, Ganesh Yadav and 25 other artistes will participate in the shoot. They will be joined by a few stuntmen from Bihar.

In Rustum, Shivarajkumar plays a cop, while Vivek is seen in a pivotal role. Actors from across different states ­— including Ganesh Yadav from Bollywood, Mahendran from Tamil cinema, Harish Uthaman from Telugu and Kannada's very own actor-director Shivamani — are part of the film.

Made under Jayanna Productions, with music by Anoop Seelin and cinematography by Mahendra Simha, the ensemble cast also consists of three heroines — Shraddha Srinath, Mayuri and Rachita Ram.
