‘Expect no religious conflicts in Roberrt’
...says director Tharun Sudhir on the release of the film’s official title poster, which has been creating a lot of buzz
The title poster of Darshan-starrer Roberrt, which was released today, has garnered a lot of attention thanks to its depiction of Darshan as Hanuman, and a young boy sitting on his shoulders as Rama. The actor officially unveiled the poster on social media, which soon became a topic of discussion. The first poster of the film made under Umapathy Films, which was released in November, depicted two hands and had an image of Ravana in the background. The tag line on the poster read: Ee Kaige.. Shabari munde solodu gothu, Ravanna munde gellodu gothu (This hand knows how to lose for good and win against the bad).
Poster in line with film’s story
The second poster-painting, which was released today, was created by the director’s assistant, Parivarthan, and according to Tharun, is in line with the story. “Keeping a superstar like Darshan in mind, I made sure to give a sneak peek to the story,” says the director, adding, “The same shots that are on the posters will be seen in the film.”
And if anyone is wondering if Darshan, who is playing the title role, will be doing a double act, it is a big ‘no’. “People will understand the title and poster when the film releases. There are a couple of looks to Darshan in the film, with ‘Hanuman’ being one of them,” he says.
Mass entertainer with family elements
Roberrt will be a family and mass entertainer, according to the director. “Expect no religious conflicts in the film. Growing up, I learnt that Ram, Rahim and Robert are the same. Just because Darshan dons Hanuman’s attire, it does not mean he will play the character,” he says.
First look of Darshan as Roberrt to be unveiled on his birthday
Tharun also plans to unveil Darshan’s first look on February 16, which happens to be the actor’s birthday. The director hints that the Challenging Star might be seen with a six pack. Meanwhile, the technical team will be revealed on Sankranti.
