Darshan to play a navy officer in Gold Ring
The film, bankrolled by Rockline Entertainers, is based on a real-life story suggested by the Challenging Star; may be made in multiple languages
Even as Darshan’s fans are gearing up for the release of Roberrt, there is more excitement coming their way. The Challenging Star is all set to play a Navy officer in his next project, which will be made under the banner of Rockline Venkatesh. The film, titled Gold Ring, is based on a storyline suggested by Darshan himself. The makers say the movie will carry a pan-Indian appeal.
Meanwhile, the actor-producer’s historical project, Raja Veera Madakari Nayaka, has been pushed due to the pandemic, and the production house is getting ready to start the film in April or May. Confirming the update, producer Rockline Venkatesh says, “We had shot a few portions of Raja Veera Madakari Nayaka, but owing to the current Covid situation, it becomes difficult for us to bring together 300-400 people on the sets. So we have decided to push the shooting. Instead, we will begin filming Gold Ring.”
Rockline Venkatesh reveals that the team is planning to simultaneously proceed with Raja Veera Madakari Nayaka. “Since it is a huge film, we plan to initially shoot with artistes other than Darshan, including actor Sumalatha, and portions which require less crowd. The sections involving Darshan will be shot later,” he says.
