Fans of Puneeth Rajkumar can rejoice. His new movie will be announced on his birthday on March 17. This was confirmed by the Power Star himself. Fans had long awaited the announcement of his new film ever since the release of Yaare Koogadali more than two months ago. Puneeth has always stuck to the principle of acting in only one movie at a time, but the gap between the release of one film and the announcement of the next has given them anxious moments in the last few weeks. Putting an end to the agony of fans, the film, which is not yet titled, will be announced in the next 10 days.
Speaking to Chitraloka, Puneeth said, "It is a home production. We will definitely start the movie on March 17 and advertisements will also be given. But, it is possible that the title may not be announced the same day as it is yet to be fixed. Everything will be finalised within the next two-three days. Even the director is to be finalised though it is likely that he could be from Andhra." This will be Puneeth's 20th film since Appu and 34th overall.
Puneeth is currently shooting for the second season of Kannadada Kothyadipati and the shooting will continue in batches over the next few months. Since the schedule of the hit television programme is fixed, the work on the film could be designed around it. So, it is likely that the next film of Puneeth will release early in the second half of the year. Before that Puneeth will be seen in the advertisement of 7UP aerated drink.
For over a year now, there has been on and off reports about Gautham Menon directing a Puneeth film. The actor said that this particular project may likely be taken up only next year. This means that there could be one more film before that this year for Puneeth.
Mynaa might not have recorded great collections all over, but that has not deterred Nagshekhar’s spirit to make a sequel out of the film.
People who have watched the film might be shocked to hear the news as the film ends in a tragedy with the lovers getting killed. But that is not the real end says Nagshekhar.
‘We have just shown the lovers collapsing after shot by the police. We have nowhere said that they are dead. The film is based on a real incident and the real couple are living happily now. I want to show what all happened after the lovers collapse in the second part’ says Nagshekhar.
The same team who worked for ‘Mynaa’ will be continued in the sequel also.
Challenging Star Darshan says that the huge success of KVSR was due to the hard work of the entire team and commitment of producer Anand Appugol.
"I can say I had to put in extra efforts to the me and the preparations for the role and my work will equal to the work I normally do for six commercial films.
Darshan said that some people had apprehensions whether the film would be accepted in view of the death of the hero in Climax. "They did not see Darshan, but they saw a great patriot like Raayanna cheated by the British and sent to gallows. I think this was the best part of the film' said Darshan.
Darshan also revealed that Ambari and Adhdhoori director Arjun will be directing the film to be produced by Sandesh Nagaraj where he will be playing the role of police cop. In four days time Darshan's birthday celebrations would be conducted in a bigger way by fans. The day will also see the launch of his new film "Brindavana' directed by Maadesh which has Tamil actress Karthika Nair and Muktha in the lead.
Anand Appugol has already announced that he will launch a new film with Darshan on August 15.
Actor turned director Harishraj who had a bitter experience in his last directorial venture 'Gun' has vowed never to produce films in partnership. Not taking the name of producer Murali, Harishraj said he has suffered enough in joint production and is not interested in co-production.
Speaking to chitraloka he told, 'It's a torture to make films in partnership along with others. I have decided never to produce films jointly with others. If I have 10 Rs, then it is better to do something in that. If others put their share then, automatically the scenario will change and I have to live my dreams according to their wish. So, I don't want to do films in others money' says Harishraj.
Harish is currently penning a script and hopes to direct a film soon.
Handsome Diganth and ravishing Aindrita have not left anyone in doubt that they are good friends. A recent report in a section of press had published an item indicating that the lovely couple is getting engaged. However, both Andy and Diggy have now denied such rumours and have said that if at all any forward movement takes place in their existing relationship, they would share the information with press.
Speaking to Chitraloka Mega Portal, Diganth who making preparations to go to Siliguri to participate in the Karnataka Bulldozers team said that the news item has no basis of fact as he or Andy have spoken about it. "I am practicing in right earnest for the forthcoming CCL series starting from 9th February 2013, for the past two months and thankfully I am improving in my performance. Frankly I have not spoken to Andy for many days. For me my career is shaping so well that I have signed a new Hindi film for which I have to sign an agreement. I am getting some exciting offers from Kannada film producers which I would like to take up after conclusion of CCL matches. I am sorry I am not getting angry about publication of such fabricated news, but I am really surprised how people use their ingenuity to spread false rumours. As for me Marriage is still far away, may be three years little. Meanwhile I am requesting Kannada film fans to encourage our CCL team which is having a tiring practice under Kiccha's leadership' said Diganth.
Andy had not known about the rumours finding place in press till late in the afternoon. "I was told by my assistant Prasanna that there has been publication of such news. I have just now signed as a Brand Ambassador for Karnataka Bulldozers team and is getting ready to cheer up our team. I dont deny I am close with Diggy, but nothing has happened to take this friendship cement in a relationship. We have not discussed about it so far. I have not informed anyone about the engagement ceremony as it is not there. I think such rumours will be circulated till I am busy in career. I am focusing more on my career. I have to finish song shooting of Tony which has come out so well. I dont even think of anything connected to marriage and I have informed my parents also' says Andy.
