Phantom to be wrapped with a song featuring Sudeep and Jacqueline Fernandez
The team of the Anup Bhandari directorial is left with two pending songs to shoot; while one will be shot post-Sankranthi, the second will be filmed in February or March
Sudeep’s Phantom, directed by Anup Bhandari, is close to completion. The team, which was busy during the first week of January, came back from Kerala last week after shooting some crucial portions. They are now left with two songs to shoot.
The adventure action-drama was one of the first Indian films for which shooting was resumed post lockdown in June. And since then, Sudeep and team have been shooting non-stop.
The makers are now planning to shoot one song sequence after Sankranthi, for which a huge set will be created in Bengaluru by art director Shivakumar. For the second track, the producers have confirmed that Jacqueline Fernandez will be performing a dance number with Sudeep, and it will be filmed either in February or March.
Sudeep plays a police officer named Vikranth Rona in Phantom. The big-budget project, made under Shalini Arts and co-produced by Alankar Pandian, will be Sudeep's next release after Kotigobba 3.
Phantom also features Nirup Bhandari as Sanjeev Gambir and Neetha Ashok as Aparna Ballal aka Panna. The latter, who made a transition from teleserials, is making her silver screen debut with the film. Phantom has music by Ajaneesh B Loknath, while DOP William David is the cameraman. The two are coming together for the first time for a Sudeep-starrer.
