Shankare Gowda's new film Varada Nayaka starring Sudeep, Chiranjeevi Sarja, Priyamni is main roles and Arjun Sarja playing a special role will be starting its regular shoot from June 27 . Already the Pooja and Muhurath ceremony for this film was held in May 20 earlier. Ayyappa Sharma is the director of this film. The heroine of this film is not finalised yet. Efforts to rope in two leading Kannada heroines for the film has proved futile as both of them are busy.
Varada Nayaka is the remake of Telugu film Lakshyam starring Gopi Chand. Jagapathi Babu had played a special role in the film which is now being played by Sudeep in the Kannada remake version. Shankare Gowda says that lot of changes has been made from the original script and scope of Sudeep's character has been enhanced.
