Naanu Mattu Varalakshmi, the first Kannada film to be based on bike racing will start its final schedule of shooting on November 23. The film stars the grandson of late music composer GK Venkatesh, Prithvi in his debut film. The film also stars Prakash Rai as a bike racer.
The director of the film Preetham Gubbi had given a break to the shooting to concentrate on the release of his other film Boxer that is releasing this week. Once he is done with that he will return to complete Naanu Mattu Varalakshmi. The film is about moto-cross racing which though quite popular in some parts of Karnataka has never been featured in any Kannada film.
The stunts for the film will be shot in a real moto-cross racing track in Kolar. The race track belongs to CS Santosh, a Kannadiga moto-cross racer who is famous for being the first Indian to successfully complete the world-famous Dakar Rally.
