Suraj Gowda's next film titled Lakshmi Tanaya
Lakshmi Tanaya marks the directorial debut of Ramesh Venkatesh Babu in Kannada, a technician who has previously worked in Telugu films
Suraj Gowda, who debuted with Maduveya Mamatheya Kareyole, has become choosy with his subjects, which explains the delay in signing his next. After Silicon City, Suraj has agreed to be part of Lakshmi Tanaya, which also includes Achyuth Rao, Sitara, Sadhu Kokila, Chikanna Shivu KR Pete and Dharmanna in the cast.
Lakshmi Tanaya marks the directorial debut of Ramesh Venkatesh Babu in Kannada, a technician who has previously worked in Telugu films. The film's launch event on September 19 will have Rangasthalam director Sukumar tapping the clapboard, while Dinakar Thoogudeepa will switch on the camera. “Venkatesh assisted Sukumar in Telugu. Even fight master Vijay, who has associated with actor Mahesh Babu previously, will be working in this project,” Suraj says.
By being part of this big-budget film, the actor has raised the bar. The film’s shoot will kickstart from November, before which the makers will reveal the first look.
Meanwhile, Suraj’s first Telugu film is slated for release sometime this year. The actor has made a cameo appearance in Hariprriya starrer, D/o of Parvathamma. “While I will be concentrating on Lakshmi Tanaya, I also have a couple of other projects. I will be associating with the director of Akira, Naveen Reddy, for a film,” he says.
