Shivarajkumar starrer 'Shivalinga' being directed by senior director P Vasu was launched at the Kanteerava Studios in Bangalore. Shivarajkumar's affectionate brother Puneeth Rajkumar came in over as the chief guest and sounded the clap for the first shot of the film.
P Vasu says he was supposed to work with Shivarajkumar almost two decades ago and their friendship dates back to the days of Shivarajkumar's second film 'Rathasapthami'. P Vasu was the one who wrote the story of the film and after that the duo was supposed to work together, but could not do so due to various reasons. Both Shivarajkumar and P Vasu expressed happiness to work together at least now.
Shivarajkumar plays a CID officer in this movie. While, Vedika plays Shivanna's heroine, actress Urvashi plays the mother to him for the very first time. P K H Doss is the cameraman and V Harikrishna will be composing the songs for the film.
Though the film was launched on Monday, the actual shooting for the film will commence only from 28th of this month.
