The makers of the upcoming Kannada movie Kabzaa (2022) have released the film’s teaser on the occasion of the film’s lead actor Upendra Rao’s birthday, which falls tomorrow. Directed by R Chandru, the movie also stars Kiccha Sudeep, Shriya Saran, Manoj Bajpayee, Nawab Shah and Murli Sharma. 

Speaking about the idea, the director said in a statement, “The film has already created a lot of buzz and we wanted to treat our fans with the teaser of the film. Tomorrow being Upendra’s birthday, we thought it would be a good gift to all his fans.” 

Throwing light on the film’s subject, an official statement from the makers said, “Kabzaa is a period film about the rise of gangsters in India, set between 1947 to 1984. It revolves around a freedom fighter’s son who gets entrapped in a mafia world.” 

Kabzaa marks Murli Sharma’s Kannada debut. Sharing his thoughts at bagging the film, the actor had said earlier this year, “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.”

Apart from Kannada, Kabzaa will also release in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Mayalayam, Oriya and Marathi.
