Hamsalekha’s next - History in the making

The director plans to take up historical subjects based on books written by BL Venu 

Published: 22nd May 2018

Hamsalekha, the well-known music director, better known as Naadha Brahma, is now juggling two roles-- that of a musician and director. While reports of Hamsalekha helming Shakuntala in Kannada and Hindi has been doing the rounds, at a recent press meet, he had mentioned that there was a surprise in store. This, he said, would be announced on his birthday on June 23.

Our sources tell us that Hamsalekha is going to be wielding the megaphone for a history-based film. Interestingly, the subject that he plans to take up, is based on books written BL Venu. Sources add that he is particularly interested in either directing a story on Gandugali Madakari Nayaka or Raja Bichhugathii Baramanna Nayaka.

While preparations are on in full swing, more light on his new ‘role’will be thrown by the director in an official announcement very shortly. The team will also share details about the cast and crew who will be on board.
