Pan India film Martin, which is currently in the final stages of its pre-production, is slated to hit the theatres by the second half of 2023. The audience is wondering if Dhruva Sarja will repeat what Yash and Rishab Shetty did for the Kannada film industry. And here’s what the action prince has to say about this comparison.
Comparison with Yash and Rishab Shetty
Kannada actor Dhruva Sarja’s Martin has been making a lot of noise ever since its announcement. The film, directed by AP Arjun, which has been in the making for over a year, is now finally concluded and the team is going all-out to promote the pan-India film.
Martin, currently in the final stages of its pre-production, is slated to hit the theatres by the second half of 2023. The teaser of the Dhruva Sarja starrer has impressed the Kannada film audiences and is going viral.
Dhruva Sarja, who is excited for Martin, was the star of the event at the teaser launch of the film in Bengaluru. The actor responded to questions about his competition in the Kannada film like Yash, Kichcha Sudeep, and Rishab Shetty.
He replied, “They are my friends and I do not want to compete with my friends. All of them are my colleagues and I don’t want to compete with them but only myself.”
Dhruva talks more about Martin
Dhruva Sarja has done a lot of love stories and now it is time for action. But he does have a choice as to which one is better. He shared, “I don’t do much romance. I want my fans to watch my films with their kids so you will not see a lot of romance in my films. Honestly, doing the action is difficult for me, but I love to do it.”
After KGF 2 with Yash, Sanjay Dutt performed with Dhruva Sarja in KD The Devil. When asked which Bollywood actor would he like to see reprise his role in Martin, Dhruva Sarja said, “I have worked with Sanju Baba in KD (Dhruva’s upcoming film) he is my favorite, that is all!”
The larger-than-life film, released in 5 languages, has also been shot across India. “We shot in a grand set in Hyderabad for 45 days, then a chase sequence in Vizag for 30 days. In Kashmir, we shot action scenes for 35 days in several locations where the temperature was below -2 degrees. We have included ice-war and skating action sequences here. And then again we shot another chase sequence in Mumbai. The climax has been shot for 52 days in a special camera,” he added. Quoted TOI.
Dhruva also said that he has significantly less dialogue in the film and several high-octane action sequences.
