Quiet beginnings for Kotigobba 3
The film, directed by Shiva Karthik and produced by Surappa Babu, went on floors today without the lead actor Sudeep
Producer Surrappa Babu, who announced his association with Sudeep for Kotigobba 3, had also stated that he was looking to release the film by December this year. And going by the latest news, it looks like he is bang on target. The film, whose story is penned by Sudeep himself, is directed by newcomer Shiva Karthik. The film’s launch was held on March 2 and the shooting has kickstarted from today, without much hoopla. The film is currently being shot in Hebbal, sans Sudeep, and even before the heroine is finalised.
Our source tells us that the makers have started off with the portions that don’t require Sudeep and the lead cast, and are instead working with other actors, who have provided dates for this short schedule. This plan will help the makers to complete the shoot and release on time. Kotigobba 3 has music by Arjun Janya and cinematography by Shekar Chandru.
As per earlier reports, Sudeep will be juggling between two projects -- S Krishna’s Phailwan and Kotigobba 3 -- and will schedule dates accordingly. The actor, who is currently on a family vacation, will be back on the sets of Ambi Ning Vayassaytho on May 1 for a 2-day song shoot. He will then wait to complete his pending portions for The Villain, before he starts with the two new films.
