The makers have come out with two video clippings - one each for Shivanna and Kiccha. The clips gives glimpses to the characters played by the two actors. More importantly, the clips leave the fans wondering about who is the villain or Ravana in the Kannada film.

Noble Cause

The teasers were formally launched by Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy. The Villain team has done its bit for struggling filmmakers in Sandalwood who are in need of financial assistance. The entry fees of Rs 500 per ticket collected from the fans were donated to the families of those directors.

"People might think that we could have donated instead of collecting money from the public. Well, producer C Manohar, Shivaraj Kumar and all of us are lending our helping hand. What we felt is every small contribution from the public will make big difference. So, we decided to charge Rs 500 as the entry fee to the event," director Prem said recently.

Prem's ambitious film was launched in December 2015 with the title Kali. But the movie was delayed as the actors were not happy with the script. After changes in the screenplay, it was rechristened as The Villain, which is expected to hit the theaters in mid-August.

Audio Launch

Makers of The Villain will formally announce their plans for the movie's audio launch. It is likely to be held next month in a foreign country.
