Darshan’s 50th film, Kurukshetra, produced by Muniratna and distributed by Rockline Venkatesh, completed 100 days at the box office last week. Cinema Express has now got the scoop about the Challenging Star’s next big project, Gandugali Madakari Nayaka. We hear, the historical film is set to go on floors very soon.

Based on a novel written by BL Venu in 1983, the film will bring together producer Rockline Venkatesh, director Rajendra Singh Babu, and Darshan. 

The project required a lot of intense preparation, and now that the makers are almost through with it, they have decided on the date to kickstart the project. Gandugali Madakari Nayaka will be launched on December 2 on a grand scale, following which the shooting will take place in various schedules.

The role of a Madakari Nayaka will be the second historical character for Darshan, who has earlier played the role of Krantiveera Sangoli Rayanna. The actor, who enjoys playing such characters and considers it a unique experience, will also undergo a physical transformation for the role.

Darshan, who is looking forward to the release of Odeya, is currently shooting for Tharun Sudhir’s Roberrt. He is simultaneously gearing up to play the role of warrior Madakari Nayaka, the last Palegara of Chitradurga, in Gandugali Madakari Nayaka.

The makers, apart from referring to Venu’s book, have collated information from various historians, and are said to have consulted professor Lasman Telagavi as well.

Producer Rockline Venkatesh had earlier said that he wants Gandugali Madakari Nayaka to be a milestone in Kannada cinema. The film will have some of the best technicians, and music director Hamsalekha and cinematographer Ashok Kashyap have already come on board.

The team has decided on the shooting locations, which include Bengaluru, Chitradurga, Mumbai, Hyderabad, and some spots in Rajasthan.
