There has been news for some time that Abhishek, son of ‘Rebel Star’ Ambarish is all set to act in a film to be directed by cinematographer turned director S Krishna. The first look of the film which is titled as ‘Kaali’ was launched on Sunday (29th May) on the occasion of Ambarish’s 71st birthday.
Abhishek is currently shooting for Duniya Suri’s ‘Bad Manners’ which was launched early last year. The film is in the last stages of shooting and Abhishek is expected to join the ‘Kaali’ team in the month of June.
‘Kaali’ will be Abhishek’s third film as an actor after ‘Amar’ and ‘Bad Manners’. The film is a romantic period drama set in the 1990s in the backdrop of the Kaveri riots. The film is being produced by Krishna’s wife Swapna Krishna under RRR Motion Pictures banner.
The makers are in the process of finalizing the cast and crew and more details are yet awaited.
‘Kaali’ is Krishna’s fourth film as a director after ‘Gajakesari’, ‘Hebbuli’ and ‘Phailwan’. Earlier, Krishna was supposed to direct a film for Puneeth Rajkumar. Krishna has shelved the project due to the sad demise of Puneeth and is now directing a film for Abhishek.
