The trailer of actor Shivarajkumar’s upcoming film Ghostis out. The film, directed by M G Srinivas and produced by Sandesh Nagaraj under his banner Sandesh Productions, is set to release in theatres on October 19 during the festival of Dassara.

“War is the reason behind many of the unhealed wounds of humanity. Whether or not such wars led to the creation of empires, they caused the fall of many. History has also forgotten many emperors who created an empire for themselves, but it never forgets people like me, who bring destruction,” says Shivarajkumar in the trailer’s voice-over. The two-minute video promises an action-heavy film with the superstar going all guns blazing.

To much surprise of the fans, the trailer also revealed that a younger version of Shivanna, digitally de-aged, will be seen in the film. Further, the makers have also announced that Ghost will offer a link to the second installment of Srinivas’ Birbal Trilogy.

Ghost also stars Anupam Kher, Jayaram, Prashanth Narayan, Archana Jois, Satyaprakash and Dattanna. With music by Arjun Janya and cinematography by Mahendra Simha, the film’s editing is by Deepu S Kumar.

Shivarajkumar is working on a slew of films, including Arjun Janya’s 45 along with Upendra and Raj B Shetty, Yogaraj Bhat’s Karataka Damanaka, untitled films with Ram Dhulipudi, Kotresh and KS Ravikumar, Narthan’s Bhairathi Ranagal, and IV Returns, a sequel to his 1989 cop film Inspector Vikram. After his recent Tamil debut with a cameo in Jailer, he will also be seen in Dhanush’s Captain Miller.
