‘Raj B Shetty expressed his admiration for my look in 45’
...says Shivarajkumar, who recently started shooting for Arjun Janya’s 45, and is awaiting a slew of releases in multiple languages
Shivarajkumar is eagerly awaiting the release of his much-anticipated film Ghost, directed by Srini. Simultaneously, he has started shooting for Narthan’s Bhairathi Ranagal, produced under his own banner, Geetha Pictures. Adding to his packed schedule, Shivarajkumar has now joined the sets of Arjun Janya’s directorial debut, 45, which also has Raj B Shetty participating in the shooting.
The Century star is excited about his look for the film, but is tightlipped regarding the details of the same. “Raj, who was in awe of my look, came and hugged me at least 5 times. This praise from a young filmmaker like him, I consider it as a compliment,” says Shivanna.
Apart from Shivarajkumar and Raj B Shetty, 45 produced by Ramesh Reddy, features Upendra in the lead cast.
Meanwhile, Shivarajkumar is eagerly awaiting the release of the Big Daddy teaser from Ghost on his birthday on July 12. “Working with fresh directors allows me to showcase different aspects of my talent, making each day on set a unique experience,” says Shivarajkumar, who is also excited about his other project, Captain Miller, alongside Dhanush.
‘I like the way Nelson has sketched my character in Jailer’
Shivanna, who plays a key role in the film Jailer alongside Rajinikanth, has completed dubbing for the movie. He expresses his happiness with how director Nelson has sketched his character. “To be featured alongside the Superstar itself is an exhilarating experience,” says Shivanna, who was thrilled to watch the release of the lyrical song from Jailer on Thursday. A peppy number, Shivanna says that he couldn’t take his eyes off Rajinikanth’s impeccable style. “I even messaged Nelson and shared my thoughts about the song.”
Jailer is all set for release on August 10.
