Darshan-starrer Roberrt to be an April 2021 release
An April release for Roberrt will mean that two big-ticket films (the other being Puneeth Rajkumar's Yuvarathnaa) will be out in the same month
If all had gone well, Kannada cinema would have witnessed a summer rush last year. Nevertheless, this rush will now happen in 2021 with two big films arriving this April. While the makers of Puneeth Rajkumar’s Yuvarathnaa, directed by Santhosh Ananddram, recently announced its release date as April 1, it has now come to light that Darshan-starrer Roberrt will likely be an April release too.
Directed by Tharun Kishore Sudhir, Roberrt is ready for release, and the team is working towards fixing a date for the same. “We are looking to bring it to theatres when the government permits 100 per cent of occupancy in cinema halls,” producer Umapathy tells Cinema Express. “Vijay’s Tamil film Master makers have taken the lead by announcing it will hit theatres across states during Pongal, and it is time we too release our films in theatres. Currently, we are discussing the prospect of having a release in April, although the specific date has not been finalised yet,” he adds.
An April release for Roberrt will mean that two big-ticket films will be out in the same month. This will not be the first time that movies starring Darshan and Puneeth will be released one after the other. In 2011, Challenging Star’s Saarathi was released on September 30, while Power Star’s Paramathma came on October 6. This was also the case with Raajakumara and Chakravarthy, which were released in 2017, on March 24 and April 7, respectively.
Roberrt has Asha Bhat as the female lead, along with an ensemble cast consisting of Jagapati Babu, Vinod Prabhakar, Sonal Monteiro, Ravi Kishan, Chikkanna, Shivaraj KR Pete, Aishwarya Prasad, and others. The film was shot over a 108-day schedule, and has music by Arjun Janya and cinematography by Sudhakar S Raj.
