Puneet's new untitled film which is a remake of Tamil Hit Nadodigal directed by Samuththirakani is being launched on October 18 in Bengaluru. Regular shooting for the film will start immediately after the Pooja .
The film is produced under Puneet's Home Production banner and directed by Maadesh. Ra dhika Pandit has been confirmed as Puneet's heroine in this film, while Yogish, Sreenagara Kitty and Vishaal Hegde will be playing other important roles.
The first schedule of the film will be held for fifteen days out of which the first seven day's portions with feature Puneet Raj Kumar and Radhika Pandit.
Star Director Indrajith Lankesh has broken new ground for his latest directorial venture Huduga Hudugi which is produced by Sandesh Nagaraj. He has shot for a new promotional song which features none other than himself which is designed to promote the film.
Promotional songs for the films have been very rare. Earlier Prakash had done in to promote his film Gokula. However the song was not promoted enough though the quality was good. Recently director Prashanth has shot a promotional song for his yet to be released film Gaana Bajaana featuring Tarun and Radhika Pandit. Now Indrajith has shot a promotional song for which he himself has the central focus.
Indrajith has used Santhosh Kumar Pathaje to shoot this song in place of the film's regular cinematographer Suresh. The song has come out as a good fusion song which has used some great dancers from U.K, Australia, Bollywood and also from Bengaluru. Well known dancers Nicolle and Divya Katti from Bengaluru have danced along with Sheena, one young dancer from U.K.Dancing school. One more Australian dancer have been roped for this song.
Indrajith says that he had participated in fifteen days rehearsal for this song.
Certainly this promotional song has been the most attractive one seen in recent times.
Incidentally Indrajith Lankesh wants to start his promo programmes in a big way and will be starting from a big programme in Mysore on October 7 where the film artists will be participating.

Praveen explained that Aindrita had sent her a message that she was having some health problems and defended his film's heroine. "We had a live audio release function in the Suvarna News Channel on Sunday. Aindrita was present in the function, but I could feel that she had some health problems. But still i requested her to come for ten minutes for the audio release function and she said that she would be making it to the audio function only if she feels alright. I think she had indeed faced some health problems as she has been touring various places recently' said Praveen.
Praveen was highly thankful for all his artists and technicians for displaying good co-operative attitude during the making of the film.
Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce President Basanth Kumar Patil has assured the executive members of the film chamber belonging to the producers sector that he will certainly look into their grievances and punish those people responsible for violating the instructions of the film chamber in the case of release of Non Kannada films.
Speaking to the producers on Wednesday afternoon at the protest , Patil told the agitated producers who had tendered their resignations to the KFCC after Endhiran fiasco that he will not accept the resignation of the producers. He asked them to wait for a while till a decision is taken by the KFCC.
A lot of Kannada film producers had gathered outside the film chamber to raise slogans against the distributors and exhibitors for showing undue patronage to non Kannada films at the cost of Kannada films.
"We are now seeing a time when genuine Kannada films are waiting for nearly three to four months to get released in theatres, but the exhibitors are happily giving their theatres to the non Kannada films which have been censored just two or three days ago. See now the Telugu film Mahesh Khaleeja is getting released here on October 7, though it was censored on October 4 at Hyderabad. But there are many number of Kannada films censored earlier which are not getting proper theatres for release. Kannada films are failing only because of this step motherly treatment' said a noted producer.
Ganesh, Secretary of KFCC, BN Gangadhar, Senior Vice President of KFCC, SA Chinnegowda, Treasurer of KFCC and executive members of the film chamber from the producers sectors have now resigned.
Geetha Krishna's Thriller flick Koffi Shop is getting released shortly. The film has received wide appreciation from the censor board who have given a U/A certification for the film.
Shravanand, Biaenca Desai and Baby Shreya are in major cast of the film.
Incidentally the film is made in Telugu and Tamil as straight films. The same sequences have been shot in Chennai and Hyderabad separately and couple of common sequences have been shot with separate negatives in all the three cities.
