This project will be bankrolled by well-known Kollywood producer KE Gnanavel Raja
Though Shivarajkumar has his hands full with various projects, that hasn’t stopped him from signing even more films. The busiest star in Kannada at the moment has gone ahead and signed yet another one. Shivarajkumar, who is currently juggling between shooting Ravi Varma’s Rustum and Pramod Chakravarthy’s Drona, has given the nod for a film to be helmed by Tamil director M Muthaiah. This project will have the actor associating with well-known Kollywood producer, KE Gnanavel Raja.
Muthaiah, who is currently shooting for Devarattam, is known for his films such as Kutti Puli, Komban, Marudhu, and Kodiveeran. This film will be his Kannada debut.
On Monday, the producer and director are said to have met the actor and finalised the agreement. According to our source, this will be his next, soon after he completes shoot for his current two projects. It is not yet known if Muthaiah has a story written for Shivarajkumar or if he will take inspiration from one of his Tamil projects.
Meanwhile, prep work is on for Lucky Gopal’s directorial SRK, which features Shivarajkumar as a dance coach.
