Talking about the movie, Shivaraj Kumar says that Shiva the Lord is a commercial film with a strong message and he is playing a jockey in it. Shivanna adds that there is a certain poise and body language for his character for which he is interacting with actual riders to portray the role better.
Shivaraj Kumar has earlier worked with director Om Prakash Rao in the movie AK-47, which was a blockbuster movie. Now, the Kannada actor is once again joining hands with the director. He says that their combination has had a box office success with AK-47. "Now, we are hoping to recreate that magic again with Shiva the Lord," he adds.
