Tamil star Suriya will be making his big Bollywood debut with the ambitious mythological magnum opus, Karna. The 2-part film will be helmed by the National Award-winning director Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra. And here’s the latest buzz on this highly anticipated project.
Even though speculations on Karna’s leading lady have been doing the rounds for the past few months, the latest buzz in Bollywood circles confirms that popular young actress Janhvi Kapoor has been roped in by Karna makers for the leading lady’s part. However, it remains to be seen if Janhvi will be essaying Draupadi’s character in this mega-budget drama.
As the title suggests, Karna is based on the iconic Karna character from the epic Mahabharata. The first part of this epic franchise will commence in the second half of this year, after Suriya wraps up Kanguva and another project with his Soorarai Pottru director Sudha Kongara. Karna will have a massive pan-Indian release in 2025.
