Darshan's Hanuman look in Roberrt revealed
The second-look motion poster, unveiled by the makers on Sankranti, and director Tharun Kishore Sudhir reveals some interesting aspects about the making of this episode
The second-look motion poster of Darshan-starrer Roberrt was revealed on Sankranti, and fans were in for quite the surprise. Darshan was seen in the get-up of Hanuman, which was in sharp contrast to the earlier poster that featured him as a biker.
As Hanuman, the actor is seen holding a bow and arrow, representing Rama, with a child artiste sitting on his lap. A sketch poster, which had similar details, was revealed by director Tharun Kishore Sudhir before the film went on floors, and it created a trend on social media.
The costumes for the look of Hanuman have been designed by Nagaraj in Chennai, and the makeup was done by Darshan’s personal makeup artist, Honne Gowdru. “Darshan also worked on his physique to get the look of Hanuman,” says Tharun.
“Like the character of Roberrt, the sequences of Darshan as Hanuman form a major portion of the film,” adds the director. “One could see a lot of dedication and devotion while shooting the episode for 15-18 days, which was done in a closed set in Bengaluru. More importantly, Darshan did not eat non-vegetarian food while shooting these particular portions. This was followed by the almost 1000-member crew too,” he says, adding that the sketches, looks, and motion poster revealed till date are all part of the story. “The posters or the looks are included in the sequences, and everything is in the script. There are no false hints,” he asserts.
Roberrt is produced by Umapathy Srinivas Gowda under the banner of Umapathy Films. The dialogues have been written by Chandramouli and KL Rajasekhar. The film’s technical crew includes music director Arjun Janya and cinematographer Sudhakarr S Raj.
The star cast comprises Asha Bhat, who is making her Kannada debut, along with Jagapati Babu as the antagonist, and Vinod Prabhakar and Sonal Monteiro in other pivotal roles.
