Ladies Tailor patched up once more
Director Vijayaprasad has roped in Sharan to play the lead in the film that is now to be produced by KA Suresh
Filmmaker Vijayaprasad has had a tough time assembling the cast for his upcoming 34:34 Ladies Tailor. Names of various actors such as Ravi Shankar Gowda, Sathish Ninasam and even Jaggesh were doing the rounds as the film’s hero. In fact, when producer Prasanna came on board, they had decided to go with Ravi Shankar Gowda, but nothing came of that.
Now we hear that the director is attempting to restart the project with another producer and male lead. Sharan will play the hero of Ladies Tailor, to be produced by KA Suresh under his banner Suresh Arts.
Vijayaprasad was particular that the lead actor should be apt for the character and be bankable. The director and producer agree that Sharan is the right choice for this, and they are now gearing up to shoot with him. There was a bit of muddle around the choice of heroine as well. The team of the film, with the tagline Galabe ellada putta premakathe, was scouting for a female lead who was willing to put on 120 kg for the role. Though a couple of heroines had shown interest in the project, they were hesitant about gaining weight.
While the director initially had Srinivas Kalyana heroine Nikila in mind, the filmmakers also considered actors such as Sharmiela Mandre, before finally deciding on Sruthi Hariharan. Sruthi, we hear, was willing to put on a few kilos but she felt 120 was asking a bit too much. And so the discussions stalled with the then producer Prasanna. Whether Sruthi will remain the heroine for the project is yet to be known.
Meanwhile, as reported earlier, this film required the hero to go bald for a few scenes. It is yet to be known whether Sharan will agree to this clause as well.
The actor is currently waiting for work on Rambo 2 to start, and is juggling two other untitled projects with directors Yoganand Mudanna and Hari Santhosh, respectively. Sharan has completed 50 per cent of the shoot for Hari Santhosh's film, while for the film with Yoganand, he has to travel abroad for a long schedule.
Ladies Tailor has Anoop Seelin as its music director and Sugnaan as cameraman. As for Suresh, this will be his next production after Raju Kannada Medium.
