777 Charlie is a New year gift to our fans: Rakshit Shetty
It has been one of the most-awaited films in Sandalwood. And now 777 Charlie is all set to hit screens on December 31. Starring Rakshit Shetty in the lead, the film directed by debutant Kiran Raj K, is an adventure comedy.
The film portrays the life of Dharma, a loner played by Rakshit Shetty, and how his life takes a new turn with the sudden arrival of a lively pup called Charlie. The tale is one filled with laughs, sentiments, adventure, and heart-warming moments, says director Kiran Raj K. "We have been getting so many videos of people, especially kids, in which their families have recorded their live reaction while viewing the trailer of the film. This is what gives the team true happiness and now we're all set to further up the ante by releasing the film this year-end," shares Kiran Raj.
Meanwhile, Rakshit shares that the last Friday of the year has proved lucky for him with both Kirik Party and Avane Srimanarayana. "So it's rather special for me to release our films on that day. Moreover, people have been so encouraging and supportive that we want to make their new year all the more special. We would like 777 Charlie to kickstart everyone's new year on a positive note," sums up Rakshit.
Rakshit Shetty one of the most talented young actors in the Kannada film industry, is also believed to know the pulse of the audience when he produces and directs films.
Rakshit Shetty plays someone who is a hardcore recluse who doesn't intermingle even with his neighbour. Charlie enters his life, initially, he doesn't like him, but circumstances lead to a very strong bond between them.
The second half of the film is quite a bit outdoors and in Kashmir. The team got permission there after the first wave had subsided. They proceeded fast. It has taken them three years to complete this film.
The makers of 777 Charlie unveiled a new single from the movie on 9th September 2021. In addition, they confirmed the theatrical release for the film and announced that the film will be hitting the big screens on December 31, New Year’s Eve. 777 Charlie is set to release in five languages including Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Hindi.
