Rakshit Shetty to play Dharma in 777 Charlie
The 777 Charlie teaser gives a glimpse of the character’s life in the comedy-drama adventure, directed by Kiranraj
Dharma is an introverted rough guy who doesn’t indulge in conversation with the neighbours. He often invites complaints and is known as Hitler among children. Director Kiranraj gives a peek into Rakshit Shetty’s characterisation in 777 Charlie, on the occasion of the actor’s birthday on Saturday.
The character will be unveiled in a special video, that will also mention the rest of the characters in the film, including Raj B Shetty and Sangeetha Sringeri. Apart from this, the makers have come up with a concept-based poster featuring Rakshit and Charlie, which denotes who is the bigger of the two. According to the director, Dharma’s realisation about Charlie is represented in this poster.
About Rakshit as Dharma, Kiranraj says, “As everyone knows, the character was initially supposed to be played by another artiste. Fortunately, when Rakshit came on board, I could step out of the boundary in terms of the story, as well as the budget. This also helped me revise the character and tune the script exactly the way I had visualised. When a known artiste comes on board, the character becomes stronger, and we were fortunate to have Rakshit playing the lead. Most importantly, this will be a never-seen-before role for Rakshit. While most films usually have the actor talking, this film will have him convey his thoughts mostly through expressions.”
Also seen in the video will be Charlie, and how she is an important part in Dharma’s life. The combination of these two will be a delight to watch, adds Kiranraj.
777 Charlie is presented by Pushkar Films, and jointly produced by Rakshit Shetty and GS Gupta under the banner of Paramvah Studios. The comedy-drama adventure has music composed by Nobin Paul, and cinematography by Aravind Kashyap.
