Indrajit Lankesh’s Hindi debut to feature Swara Bhaskar or Richa Chadha

The Kannada director, who introduced Deepika Padukone to the film industry, makes his Bollywood debut this year

Published: 29th January 2018

Indrajit Lankesh needs no introduction in the Kannada cinema industry. Known as the stylish director of Sandalwood, he is also the person who introduced Deepika Padukone to tinsel town with his directorial Aishwarya, in which she was paired opposite Upendra.

The director behind films such as Monalisa, Thuntata, and Luv U Alia amongst others, will now be foraying into Bollywood.

Directors from Kannada, such as Puttana Kanagal, Rajendra Singh Babu and Kashinath, have made it to Bollywood in the 70s and 80s. After 20 years now, we have another Kannada director prepping to direct a Hindi film. Though the project details have not been shared, our source says that it will be a female-centric film.

Another interesting piece of information is that the director is planning to rope in either Richa Chadha or Swara Bhaskar for his first Hindi film, and one of the actors will be finalised in the next couple of weeks, depending on the availability of their dates and their commitment towards the project.

An official announcement will be made when one of them signs on the dotted line. After this is done, the supporting cast, technicians and production details will also be revealed by Indrajit Lankesh.

The director, who is busy with social work, is currently part of the reality show Majaa Talkies hosted by Srujan Lokesh, the second season of which will start on February 8.
