Sudeep’s kushti poster from Pailwaan goes viral
According to director S Krishna, Sudeep will be seen bare-chested for the first time in his 22-year-long career
A brand new poster of Sudeep from Pailwaan was released on Saturday and it is currently trending on social media. Overwhelmed with the response, director S Krishna says that Sudeep has sculpted his body for the role. “It’s the first time in his 22-year- career that we will see him bare chest,” says Krishna, who has given Sudeep the title of ‘Badshaah’.
The director is now getting ready with the teaser, which will again be “related to kushti.”
"We have cut the teaser, and are in the post-production phase. The date of release will be fixed in a week’s time," says Krishna.
Meanwhile, Sudeep will start shooting the final boxing sequences from tomorrow, all of which have been choreographed by Hollywood stuntman Larnell Stovall. “Sudeep lost 13 kgs to get a lean and muscular look. He did this for the boxing sequence. In the next two weeks, he will get back to his normal routine,” the director says.
The makers are planning to release Pailwaan in eight languages, and the title has already been registered in Tamil, Telugu and Marathi. The film has Akanksha Singh as the female lead, with Suniel Shetty, Sushant Singh, Kabir Duhan Singh also part of the ensemble cast.
With the end of the boxing sequences, the makers would have completed 80 per cent of the shoot, and will be left with only the fight and song sequences.
