Arbaaz Khan is now all set to make his acting debut in Kannada cinema in the film Where Is My Kannadaka?, as per an official statement from the makers. The film is directed by husband and wife duo Raaj and Damini.
This is not the first time that Khan is starring in a south Indian language film. He has previously acted in two Telugu films — Jai Chiranjeeva (2005) and Kittu Unnadu Jagratha (2017).
Khan stated why he signed on for Where Is My Kannadaka? [Where Are My Spectacles?], “The script is interesting. Also, I wanted to explore regional films. I have already done two Telugu films while this would be my first Kannada film. I am excited to be part of a good story.” His character in the film has not been revealed yet.
Interestingly, Kannada star Sudeep has reportedly been roped in for Dabangg 3 (2020), which is produced by Khan.
Where Is My Kannadaka? will go on the floors in April this year and the major chunk of the shoot will take place in the UK. “The film would be shot in a start to finish schedule in UK in the months of April [and] May this year. The makers are looking at releasing the film in the last quarter this year,” the official statement revealed.
The makers have already signed Kannada star Ganesh to play the lead. Hindi film actress Patralekhaa, who is also making her debut in the industry, is cast opposite him.
