I am as curious as my fans to know the film’s title: Puneeth Rajkumar
The title of the actor's much-hyped film, directed by Santhosh Anandrram, will be revealed by his fans on November 1 to mark Kannada Rajyotsava
In the past few weeks, director Santhosh Ananddram’s film with Puneeth Rajkumar has created a buzz over its possible title. The much-hyped film’s title will finally be revealed at 11 am tomorrow, by the fans of Puneeth.
Made under Hombale Films, the film’s title, as earlier reported is likely to be one of the titles from Rajkumar’s 200-odd films, with an additional word. Ahead of the title’s release, we caught up with the actor himself over a telephonic conversation, to know his reaction about the hype surrounding his next film. “To be honest, I am not able to find the root cause of this buzz. There are bound to be expectations since my previous film Raajakumara with Santhosh Ananddram was well received. The same combination of director, production house, hero, and music director are coming together, which has generated further interest. Having said that, a film cannot be made keeping in mind expectations. All that the team and I want to do is make a good film,” he says.
Puneeth points to social media, which he feels is the reason for the hype. “It’s a platform where a lot of people have come up with a title. And that’s become news in itself. The team will reveal the final title on Thursday. Honestly, I am as curious as my fans to know the film’s title. Even I haven’t found out what it is,” says Puneeth, adding, “A fan will unveil the title on Kannada Rajyotsava. Thursdays are also an auspicious day for Rayaru (Lord Raghavendra), which adds to the celebration,” he adds.
Answering speculations about the title being one from his father’s films, Puneeth says, “The last time, when Santhosh titled the film Raajakumara, I was scared. I worried what would happen if the film didn’t do well. But the film went beyond our expectations. As far as this film is concerned, I can say that it is an entertainer with a good message.”
