Murli Sharma, who has worked in the Hindi, Marathi, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam film industries, will make his Kannada debut in R Chandru's Kabzaa (2022).
The period drama stars Upendra, Kichcha Sudeepa and Shriya Saran. Director R Chandru revealed that Sharma will play a character named Veera Bahaddur in the feature film.
Sharma is known for portraying police officers and has acted in over 200 films.
The filmmaker said, “Murli is extremely popular with Telugu and Hindi audiences. His role in Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo (2020) won him a lot of fanfare. This is one reason we decided to approach him to play a pivotal role in our film. He plays a character named Veera Bahaddur, who hails from a royal family.”
The actor said, “I was a little nervous in the beginning as I don't really speak Kannada and this was a very beautiful experience and all the credit goes to my director R Chandru. He just took me through it. It's a very beautiful and very performance-oriented character and I have done some extremely beautiful scenes which I think have come out very well. My director is happy so I am happy.”
R Chandru also said that a massive shooting schedule had just been completed. “With this, we have completed nearly 85% of the film,” he stated. “There is another big schedule left, which includes around 20 days of shooting, and some new actors will join us then. We are looking at releasing the film this year itself.”
