Suniel Shetty will play the role of Sarkar in his debut Kannada film, Pailwaan, which stars Sudeep in the lead role. 'Not even in my wildest imagination had I thought Suniel Shetty would be part of Pailwaan,' says director S Krishna.
'Suniel will be playing a pivotal role in Pailwaan. While I had written a role that required a prominent personality, I had never thought that Suniel would be playing it,' says Krishna, adding it was Sudeep who suggested a Suniel's name after hearing the character. "We just decided to give it a try. When we went and narrated the content, he liked the role and after going through the script, he agreed to be a part of the film,” says Krishna, who is confident that Suniel has done complete justice to the character.
Pailwaan is Krishna’s first production venture made under his RRR Motion Pictures. Sudeep will be seen as a boxer and wrestler. The film consists of an ensemble cast that includes Bollywood actors like Akanksha Singh and Sushant Singh. The film that has Arjun Janya scoring music and cinematography by R Karunakar, will be simultaneously be dubbed and released in at least eight languages.
