Pehlwaan is Krishna’s first production venture made under his RRR Motion Pictures. The upcoming film marks the director’s second collaboration with Sudeep after the 2017 hit Hebbuli. The film has Arjun Janya scoring the music and cinematography by R Karunakar.
In May this year, Sudeep shared the first look of Shetty's character in the film. Dressed in traditional South Indian attire with a white shirt and dhoti, Suneil is seen sporting a salt-and-pepper hair look.
