Rishab Shetty’s Hero roots for the underdog

The trailer of the film, which marks the directorial debut of Bharath Raj M, will be launched on Sankranthi

Published: 13th January 2021

The trailer of Rishab Shetty's upcoming film, Hero will be released on Sankranthi. Ahead of its release, Rishab and debutant director M Bharath Raj have revealed a few details about the project.

Rishab reveals that Hero was the first film to be shot post the lockdown. “What usually requires around 100 people, we managed to shoot with a 24-member crew,” he said, expressing his happiness with the music by Ajaneesh B Loknath, who has done the background score and composed three songs.

Hero will mark Rishab's second film as lead actor after Bell Bottom. He plays the role of a hairstylist in the film. “The hero in this film is an underdog character, and it is the situation that makes him a hero,” says Rishab, revealing that Hero will feature a little bloodshed. “Usually, our production house, Rishab Shetty Films, has explored ‘feel-good’ kind of subjects. This is the first time we are coming up with a full-fledged commercial entertainment drama that has elements of comedy and action,” he adds.

With Aravind Kashyap cranking the camera, and stunt master Vikram choreographing the stunts, Hero has Ganavi Laxman playing the female lead.
