Recently, the actor has signed up for the lead role in director Shashikanth's new movie Ekka Raja Rani. The actor will start shooting for the movie from November this year. Rakshit will be playing a gangster in the movie.
Speaking about the movie, the actor said that he was very impressed by the script and therefore gave his consent to act in the movie. The director clarified that Rakshit will be playing a gangster in the movie and not as a rowdy. The characters will wield guns instead of the machete like it is usually seen in the Kannada movies.
This is not the first time that Rakshit will play such a role. Rakshit Shetty essayed the role of Richi, a gangster, in his own movie Ulidavaru Kandante. Seems like the actor, who made his name as a romantic hero has a liking for characters with Grey shade. Recently he had expressed his desire to direct Super star Sudeep as a leader of dacoits in a movie.
