Sudeep juggles between shooting of Vikrant Rona, Bigg Boss season 8
The Anup Bhandari directorial, produced by Shalini Arts, also features Nirup Bhandari and Neetha Ashok
The shooting of Vikrant Rona is close to completion and Kichcha Sudeep, who is busy hosting the reality show Bigg Boss Season 8, joined the sets of the film in Bengaluru last week. The Anup Bhandari directorial, produced by Shalini Arts, also features Nirup Bhandari and Neetha Ashok.
The adventure action-drama was one of the first Indian films to resume shooting post the lockdown in June, last year. Now, the makers are left with just two songs and a few talkie portions. In this schedule, the crew is covering the pending sequences and a few montage blocks.
If everything goes as per plan, the team plans to wrap the film by May. At the same time, they also want to shoot a special song, for which the makers have roped in Jacqueline Fernandes.
Vikrant Rona, which features Sudeep as a police officer, will be yet another pan-Indian release from the Kannada industry. In addition, the film is also likely to travel to more than 50 countries. Along with multiple Indian languages, it will also be dubbed and released in French, Arabic, Spanish, Mandarin, and Russian. While the production house is looking to release the film this year, they are yet to finalise the date.
Produced by Manjunath Gowda, Vikrant Rona also marks the first collaboration of both music director Ajaneesh B Loknath and cinematographer William Davi with Sudeep.
Meanwhile, Sudeep’s current focus is the Shiva Kartik directorial, Kotigobba 3, bankrolled by Surappa Babu. The makers have chalked out the promotional activities and are working on the release date, keeping the Covid-19 situation and 50 per cent occupancy order of theatres in mind.
