Here's Venkata Krishna Gubbi and Purple Priya of Gubbi Mele Brahmastra

Sujay Shastry, a theatre person and actor, is now testing waters in cinema with Gubbi Mele Brahmastra. The shooting of the film starring Raj B Shetty and Kavitha Gowda is completed.
Sujay says, “It is probably my work in theatre that has given me the force to direct a film. But I feel that directing a play is harder than helming a film. I started my career in theatre in 1991 and now, I am excited to try film direction.”
The romantic drama, featuring Raj and Kavitha as Venkata Krishna Gubbi and Purple Priya, respectively, also has elements of comedy. “Raj plays a software engineer, who is eager to get married. He also wants to be called Krish, and not his full name. His father is a retired IT employee who gets into match-making. Even though he has found a bride for every groom in town, he can’t find one for his son,” says Sujay. He clarifies that the film isn’t just about matrimony, but is also a love story. The film also features Pramod Shetty, Manjunath Hegde, Aruna Balraj, Babu Hirranahiah, and Shobhraj as part of the cast.
The film has been made under the banner of Crystal Park Cinemas and is looking for a May-end or early-June release. Gubbi Mele Brahmastra has Manikanth Kadri composing the music with Sumeeth Halgeri handling the camerawork. Srikanth Shroff, who has previously worked in Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu is the film’s editor.
