Upendra to wield pistol used by Dr Rajkumar in Gandhada Gudi and Amitabh Bachchan in Sholay
Director R Chandru is bringing a classic touch to Kabza with this pistol, which he hired from Bangalore Gun House
The pistol used by Dr Rajkumar in Gandhada Gudi, which was later used by Amitabh Bachchan in Sholay, will now be seen in the hands of Upendra. The actor was excited to share this information on Twitter, where he said, “The pistol used by Annavru (Dr Rajkumar) and Amitabh Bachchan in Gandhada Gudi and Sholay is now used in Kabza, and it holds a different kind of thrill.”
Director R Chandru is bringing a classic touch to Kabza with this pistol, which he hired from Bangalore Gun House. This company had earlier supplied it to the makers of Sholay. The makers will be dedicating 170 days for the filming, which is planned in five schedules. Currently, the team is shooting some crucial portions in Bengaluru over a stretch of 35 days.
The makers are in the process of finalising the heroine, who will join the sets only by April-end. Backed by MTB Nagaraju, Kabza is being made under the banner of Siddheshwara Enterprises. It is likely to be out in November or December 2020.
The film, which is being made in Kannada, will have a pan-Indian release in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Marathi, and Bengali. Music is by Ravi Basrur, while the cinematography is by Arjun Shetty.
Kabza, based on the underworld, is a period action drama set in 1980. With Upendra in the lead, the film boasts a bevy of actors, including producer-actor Naveen, Kabir Duhan Singh, Kota Srinivas Rao, Jaya Prakash, Kaat Raju, Subbaraju, M Kamaraj, and Avinash.
This is the third time Upendra and Chandru are collaborating for a project, after Brahma and I Love You.
