Srinath and Srinivas Murthy are the latest entrants to Kurukshetra and both have a pivotal role in the film. Interestingly, the periodic drama directed by Naganna has Ravichandran as Krishna. The movie will have Srinath playing Darshan’s father and hence will will be featured as Dhritarashtra. Another important character Dhronacharya will be essayed by Srinivas Murthy.

A huge set is currently being created at Ramoji studios by art director, Kiran.  The makers are in the process of finalising the huge star cast. While Rana Daggubatti’s name has been doing the rounds for sometime now, another actor’s name that is popping up from the list  is Vivek Oberoi. But what role will he fit in the Mahabhrata epic is yet to be known.

The mega budget film produced by Munirathna will be launched on July 23. This is Darshan’s 50th and he plays the lead as Duryodhana in Kurukshetra.
