Geetha will be special for my career: Ganesh

The actor is happy that film, which shares its name with the iconic Shankar Nag-starrer, is being made under his home banner

Ganesh, who struck gold in 2006 with romantic film Mungaru Male, has since been craving to be part of interesting films. While he has projects such as Orange with Prashant Raj lined up, he is also attempting a horror-comedy with director Naganna now, which we hear, he took up only to fulfil his daughter Charitrya’s wish. However, it is his next film Geetha, with debutant Vijay Nagendra, which has people talking. The film is being made under Golden Movies, in association with producer Syed Salaam, and will be officially launched today, on the actor’s birthday. Prashant also plans to release a teaser for Orange today, and Naganna will be announcing his film’s title too. 

The first look of the actor from Geetha is out, in which he has the Karnataka flag sticking out his pocket. “We have been working on my character’s retro look over the past month and a half, and we did a photoshoot on June 22,” says Ganesh, adding, “Every year, I make sure one film is made under my home banner, Golden Movies. This time, I chose Geetha, which is made in association with SS Films. It will be a special film in my career, as it shares its name with the Shankar Nag-starrer from the 1980s.”

As reported earlier by Cinema Express, Nag’s personality will be woven into Ganesh’s character, but otherwise, the subject of both the films is completely different. More details of the project will be revealed once shooting starts. “I will complete Orange, which requires another 18 to 20 days of work to finish the songs and climax scene. I will then start on Naganna’s project, and Geetha will start rolling from September onwards,” says Ganesh.

The actor is confident about Vijay’s directing. “The first-timer had come to me with the story a year ago. He was associated with director Santhosh Ananddramm (of Mr and Mrs Ramachari and Raajakumara fame), who was the one who told me that Vijay had a script for me. The story and screenplay has taken shape well, and I’m now looking forward to presenting it on screen,” says Ganesh.

Geetha has music by V Harikirshna and cinematography by Shreesha Kuduvalli.
