The new film of Puneeth Rajkumar, shooting for which will start on May 3, will be directed by Giriraj. He has directed Advaitha and Jatta before this. Jatta is releasing in May and is produced by Vajreshwari Kumar, who is also the producer of the new film. Speaking to Chitraloka, Kumar said that the title of the movie is not yet decided. Iilayaraja will compose the music for the film and this will be his first with Puneeth. Bhavana will play the heroine for Puneeth. Kumar said that Malayalam superstar who is playing an important role in the film was thrilled when he heard the script and immediately gave dates for the film.
Shooting will start in May itself as Mohan Lal will be travelling to South America later. Portions involving Mohan Lal will be shot first and then in July portions with Puneeth will be shot. However, this film will be released after Ninnindale, which was announced on Puneeth's birthday last month.
Other sources say that there is frantic efforts to find a title for the film. The film team, it is said has shortlisted about 10 names and one of them will be chosen finally. These include, Jedarabale, Naandi, Lagori and Buguri.
Malayalam superstar Mohan Lal is making a return to Kannada films after nearly a decade. This time he is teaming up with Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar. Mohan Lal will arrive in Bangalore on May 1 and shoot for five days as part of the first schedule. Though there are reports that it is a new film based on Kannadada Kotyadhipati, a source says Lal will be part of Ninnindale, the film that was announced last month on Puneeth's birthday.
Mohan Lal acting in the movie has been a closely guarded secret. He has acted in one film before; Love, that was directed by Rajendra Singh Babu and was debut film of Aditya. Lal's presence in Ninnindale has not been confirmed by official sources. But it is true that he will be shooting for a Kannada film from May 1. The question remaining to be answered is, which one?
With Yogaraj Bhatt’s new film for Kumar and Karisubbu postponed a little further, there are speculations that Sudeep would be acting in the film in place of Yash.
Earlier, Yogaraj Bhatt had indicated that Yash would be the hero of his new film. However, there are theories that after all Yash won’t be a part of the new film and Sudeep may replace him. The reasons for such a theory are that, producer M N Kumar has Sudeep’s dates and is waiting for many years to produce a film for him. There was news that Harsha and Ram Gopal Verma might direct a film with Sudeep in lead role and now sources say that M N Kumar is keener to do a film with Sudeep in Yogaraj Bhatt’s direction. The trio’s last outing was ‘Ranga SSLC’ after which Sudeep and Kumar parted ways with Yogaraj Bhatt.
Now Kumar wants to create a magic by uniting Bhatt and Sudeep. Even other Karisubbu who is very close to Sudeep in the recent years after he acted as a father to Sudeep in ‘Vishnuvardhana’ wants Yogaraj Bhatt and Sudeep to come together again.
To add more fuel to that, Yogaraj Bhatt on Sunday interviewed Sudeep for a TV interview. The interview was about Sudeep’s forthcoming film ‘Bachchan’ and director Shashank got Yogaraj Bhatt to interview Sudeep instead of an anchor. Bhatt’s interview has added more fuel to the speculations about him directing a film for Sudeep.
