On Monday, Darshan abruptly halted his shooting midway in Mysore, citing collection issues as the reason. Sources suggest his involvement in the murder case prompted the abrupt halt in shooting.

Presently, the shooting for the film "The Devil," is ongoing. Darshan is purportedly committed to "D59," directed by Itta Tarun Sudhir, slated for release on October 5, 2024. The film teams have scheduled "Devil" for a December 25 release and "Rajaveer Madkari Nayak" on December 20, 2024. However, the recent arrest of Darshan raises uncertainties regarding ongoing and future film projects.

Renuka was discovered dead on June 9, a day after her purported murder on June 8. While initial inquiries suggested suicide, further investigations unveiled a homicide.

Police inquiries have implicated Darshan as the alleged mastermind behind the murder. Reports suggest Renuka was slain based on instructions attributed to Darshan. Allegedly, the murder occurred in front of Darshan, orchestrated within the garage of his close associate Vinay in Rajarajeshwari Nagar. Subsequently, her body was disposed of in a drain.
