A still from DAD

DAD - Devaraj Alias David, presented by Radhika and Yash, will mark the directorial debut of Arjun Krshn. The film will feature several newcomers, including model-turned-actors Vishal, Mahika Mahi, and Nrithya Bopanna. The makers have revealed the first-look poster of the film, which is being made under the banner of AAA Pictures.

Arjun, an MBA graduate from Mysuru, is also the producer of the film. “It’s been a 15-20-year-old dream for me, and it has come true with DAD,” he says, adding that he and Yash are childhood friends from kindergarten. “Both of us dreamt of being in films. He has already found the path to success and achievement, but I took some time to learn the nuances of direction, before entering the field. In the meantime, I went around approaching various producers, wasting two long years. Finally, I took up production too,” says Arjun, who quit his job to follow his dream. 

Apart from direction and production, Arjun is also handling the story, screenplay, as well as dialogues of DAD. The film, which is now in the final stages of shooting, is an emotional action thriller about a father and son. “It’s a youthful subject with a college student at the centre,” he says.

DAD also features Sunchendra Prasad, Chandu of Lakshmi Baraamma fame, and Manju Natana in prominent roles. The makers have brought in the Mumbai-based pop band, Ek Khwab, to compose the music, while Anil Kumar K is handling cinematography and editing.
