Sudeep-starrer Phantom to have a pan-Indian release 

Sudeep’s popularity across the country is expected to give the film a pan-Indian appeal

Published: 29th November 2020

Director Anup Bhandari has finished 70 per cent of the shooting of Phantom. The Sudeep-starrer seems to have the potential to become a pan-Indian film, with the actor’s popularity across the country working to its advantage. Further, it has a plot with universal appeal and is being shot with a huge budget.

Bankrolled by Manjunath Gowda under the banner of Shalini Arts, this was one of the first Indian films to go on floors in June, amid the pandemic, and since then the team has executed its plans in a timely manner.

Though an official announcement about the pan-Indian release is yet to be made by the producers, our sources have confirmed the development.

This will be Sudeep’s second film after Phailwaan to have such a wide release.

The crew is currently planning to begin their next shooting schedule in Kerala in the first week of December, after which they are likely to wrap it up with a song shoot in Bengaluru.

Phantom will feature Sudeep as a police officer named Vikranth Rona. It also stars Nirup Bhandari and Neetha Ashok. The team is also said to have approached some Bollywood heroines for a guest appearance. The makers are keen to have Katrina Kaif or Nora Fatehi on board for a special song, and are currently in talks with the two actors.

Phantom’s artwork is being created by Shivakumar. The film has music by Ajaneesh Loknath and cinematography by William David.
