In the enthralling realm of Sandalwood, a beacon of excitement illuminates with the grand conclusion of the Darshan-fronted film, Katera. To mark this significant milestone, the film’s ensemble convened for a press rendezvous, shedding light on what fans can anticipate.
Darshan, with his inimitable passion, emphasized that the essence of a movie goes beyond its production scale. It’s the collective spirit that elevates its stature. While today marked the film’s 100th day of shooting, Darshan candidly shared that his personal journey with Katera spanned 71 days.
His reflective mood unearthed memories from yesteryears. Working alongside Mohan Alva wasn’t new, but acting with him certainly was. Darshan nostalgically recollected his days as a light boy for one of Alva’s films. A heartening camaraderie was also evident in his anecdotes about Jagapathi Babu, who often preferred a homely touch, cooking his meals even during the shoots.
Another highlight was Darshan’s commendation for Rakshitha. Much like himself, Rakshitha proved her mettle as a one-take artist, effortlessly acing her scenes. As for Malashree, her presence was an experience in itself. Darshan humorously shared how she’d ensure everyone had a taste of whatever she was munching on.
Katera, as described by Darshan, is not just a cinematic delight but also an epitome of decency. From start to finish, the film thrives on genuine interactions, devoid of any obscenities. He fondly acknowledged the producers for fulfilling every requirement the film demanded, emphasizing that Katera is a collective triumph – from the lead actors to the diligent plate washers.
Helmed by the skilled Tarun Sudhir and backed by the prolific Rockline Venkatesh, Katera promises a visual spectacle. With its release scheduled for the end of this year, the anticipation is palpable.
