When Crazy Star V. Ravichandran announced that he would be playing the role of Lord Krishna, the fans went berserk and have committed that they will wait patiently for this phenomenon to release.


At this juncture, another update from Kurukshetra team has arrived. The name of the actor who will be seen playing the role of Karna has been revealed.

Yes, after much consideration, actors for the roles of Duryodhana, Dronacharya and Dhritarashtra have almost been finalised. There were a lot of speculations in Gandhinagar that some great actor will be seen playing the role of Karna, opposite Darshan as Duryodhana.

As the story of Karna involves him sharing a great friendship with Duryodhana, there were a lot of people who said only one could give justice to that role. He was actor Darshan's best friend only until recently. If you think you got the answer right, you're wrong!

Darshan Shoulders Another Responsibility

Since the unavailability of Sudeep, the film team of Kurukshetra seemed to have searched for the perfect actor to fit in the role of Karna but to no avail. Finally, the role has landed on Darshan himself.
