Raakshas is an upcoming Marathi film starring Sharad Kelkar and Sai Tamhankar in the lead roles. Makers of the film revealed the poster which is part horror/thriller based in a dense forest sort of giving a mythical look to the film. Raakshas is a very ambitious project as budgets don’t roll beyond a point in Marathi cinema but this one might turn out to be a big spectacle out of this industry. Sharad Kelkar could be playing agrey character in the film who is on the side of both good and evil while Sai is the one definitely paying the price for being good and getting tortured.
Sharad Kelkar is known fr his work in Television in both Hindi and Marathi and he is the voice of Baahubali in the Hindi dubbed version of the film. He is the man who voiced Prabhas’s character in a language where the film ended up earning 512 crores. Come what may he is a very important expression for the biggest hit of Indian cinema of all time. Baahubali has helped Kelkar get some extra muscle in the film business and he was extremely appreciated for his work in the film as his intensity completely matched Prabhas’s action on screen.
Raakshas is Kelkar’s biggest solo release till date as he was last seen in Bhoomi starring Sanjay Dutt as a mean antagonist. Trailer of the film will be coming real soon and release date declared by the makers is 23 February 2018. Though it is a small film but could be hurt because of the clash with Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety and Welcome to New York which is India’s first 3d comedy. Raakshas will be directed by none other than Dnyanesh Zoting who is considered one of the most prolific director in Marathi cinema as he is technically sound enough to take the burden of this project.
