Srujan Lokesh, who dons multiple hats as actor, presenter, host, and producer, is now set to become a director and helm a horror comedy.
The upcoming film, which will be presented by Sandesh Nagaraj, will be jointly produced under Sandesh Productions and Lokesh Productions banner.
Speaking to Cinema Express, Srujan divulged details about his upcoming film, which is going to be a horror comedy. "I'm happy to take the legacy of my grandfather Subbaiah Naidu (the first hero of silent movies) and my father actor-director, Lokesh, forward. I'm excited to mark my directorial debut for which I have also written the script," he mentioned.
Srujan conceived the story which is based on a dream he got during an afternoon nap. "The film is going to be a complete entertainer, specially made for family audiences," he said. While Srujan is in the process of finalising the star cast, he is upbeat to have his mother, and veteran actor, Girija Lokesh on board. "I'm excited to direct and act along with my mother,” he added.
The film will have rapper and composer Chandan Shetty scoring the music. KL Rajashekar, who worked on the reality show, Majaa Talkies, will be penning the dialogues, and HC Venu will be handling the cinematography.
