Bollywood actor Govinda, who is
famous for his all-round entertainers, is likely to make his full-fledged debut in the South cinema with a Kannada film.

The buzz is that the makers of Prajwal Devaraj’s yet-to-be-titled action thriller, directed by Kiran Vishwanath, have approached the actor for a crucial role in the film. The director confirmed the development saying, “Yes, we are in talks with Govinda, and producer Naveen Kumar, has already had his round of discussions with him and he is about to sign the dotted lines. An announcement will be made once things get official.”

Govinda is reportedly familiar with Kannada cinema and Karnataka through his aunt, and is a big fan of Dr Rajkumar. He had surprised the Kannada audience, when he sang Endendu Ninnanu marethu, (the evergreen hit from the legendary film, Eradu Kanasu), at an informal gathering. Govinda reminisced about the time he used to travel to Karnataka for shooting in the 1990s.

Director Kiran Vishwanath

Kiran has worked as an associate director in films like Kempegowda and Ranna, and as an editor in Urvi, and Gurudatha Ganiga’s Ambi Ning Vayassaytho. The upcoming Prajwal Devaraj film will be his debut as an independent director. The team is prepping now to begin shooting in November once Prajwal completes Mafia, which has music by Gummineni Vijay and cinematography by Girish Gowda.
