Bulbul jodi back on silver screen?
The makers of Darshan’s next film, directed by Pon Kumar and produced by Shylaja Nag and B Suresh, are likely to rope in Rachita Ram to play female lead
Even as Darshan is busy shooting for Muniratna Kurukshetra, in which he plays Duryodhana, rumours about his next project with producers B Suresh and Shylaja have been doing the rounds.
There has been much interest in the project, ever since it was announced. According to latest reports, the makers of the yet-to-be titled film directed by Pon Kumar may rope in Rachita Ram to play the female lead. This means that the hit Bulbul pair will be back on screen.
While they have remained tightlipped about the casting, we hear that the makers believe Rachita fits the character to the T. The production house is yet to sign a formal agreement with the actor and they are waiting for the right time to make an official announcement.
Our source says, “The team is particular that no details of Darshan’s 51st film are made public until the actor has completed shoot of Kurukshetra. They will confirm the casting and share other details only when the film goes on floors.”
Rachita Ram began her tinsel town career with Darshan in Bulbul, and followed that with Ambareesha. If all goes according to plan, this will be her third outing with the star. She has always considered Darshan and his brother Dinakar Thoogudeepa her mentors, and has expressed this on many forums. This third film with Darshan would be like a second innings for the actor for she'd get to work with one of top stars in the industry.
Currently, Rachita is juggling between two projects. The shoot of her Johnny Johnny Yes Papa with Duniya Vijay is slated to end by mid December, while her other film Ayogya with Ninasam has started rolling.
