Rishab Shetty to star in Cowboy Krishna, an Avane Srimannarayana spinoff
The actor has grabbed attention with his unique look and style in a cameo with no dialogues in the Rakshit Shetty-starrer
Rishab Shetty’s next will be based on his role as Cowboy Krishna in Rakshit Shetty’s latest film, Avane Srimannarayana. The actor, who was seen in a cameo with no dialogues, has grabbed attention for his unique look and style. This has pushed the director-actor to give a whole new shape to the character of Cowboy Krishna.
Pegged to be a high-budget fantasy drama, this spinoff will be produced by HK Prakash, who previously produced Rangitaranga and was associated with Pushkar Mallikarjunaiah for Avane Srimannarayana. Along with Rishab Shetty, the Seven Odds team, comprising the writers of Avane Srimannaryana, are said to be involved in writing the script of Cowboy Krishna.
While Rishab will face the camera in this film, the team is yet to decide on the director. The makers, who have gauged the popularity of Cowboy Krishna, have quickly registered the title. However, the project will take off only after Rishab completes his prior commitments.
Rishab is at present focusing on his upcoming directorial, Rudraprayag. The film, made under the Jayanna Combines banner, features Anant Nag in the lead role, and also features Gulshan Devaiah and Shraddha Srinath. The director, who is also taking up acting projects, has several other projects in the pipeline, such as Bell Bottom 2, Antgoni Shetty, and a yet-to-be-titled film to be directed by his associate.
