The makers of upcoming Telugu action-thriller “Keshava” on Wednesday — International Women’s Day — released a special poster featuring Isha Koppikar, who will be seen donning the khaki for the role.
The poster features a fierce-looking Isha, who is returning to Telugu filmdom after a decade, sporting shades.
Directed by Sudheer Varma, “Keshava” stars Nikhil Siddhartha in the lead.
The role will see Isha demonstrate Hapkido, a form of self-defence, is a highly eclectic style of Korean martial arts.
“She’s the vice president of the Hapkido Federation of India. In the film, she will be seen performing stunts, and she’s planning to bring professionals from China and Japan to choreograph the action involving Hapkido,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.
Some reports earlier suggested that Esha Gupta was considered for the role.
“There must have been some confusion with the names. Hence, Isha would have become Esha. We never even considered Esha because we were looking for someone senior for the role,” he said.
