Priya Anand to star opposite Shivarajkumar in new-age action drama?
Century Star will play a cop in the film directed by Ravi Arasu and made by Sathya Jyothi Films
Shivarajkumar’s upcoming film with Sathya Jyothi Films, to be directed by Ravi Arasu, is likely to start from February 2020. While the makers are still in the process of finalising the lead heroine, speculations are rife that Priya Anand is going to be paired opposite Shivanna in the cop drama.
A couple of names were doing the rounds for the role, and according to a source, the production house has zeroed in on Priya after a few rounds of discussions. The actor, who has made her mark in the south as well as in Bollywood, got her big break in Kannada with Santhosh Ananddram’s Raajakumara, starring Puneeth Rajkumar. She later worked with Ganesh in Orange.
Priya is said to have given the green signal, and an official announcement will be made by the production house once she signs on the dotted line. If it works out, this cop drama will be Priya’s third outing in Kannada and her first with the Hat-trick hero.
Sathya Jyothi Films have signed Chandramouli, the dialogue writer of KGF and Roberrt, and will be bringing Charan Raj on board to score the music. The team is in the process of finalising the cinematographer and rest of the technicians.
The production house, which has earlier brought out Tamil films like Moondram Pirai and Viswasam, has Dhanush-starrer Pataas lined up next.
This will be Sathya Jyothi Films’ second venture in Kannada. The banner earlier produced a film titled Sathya Jyothi, featuring Vishnuvardhan in the lead.
The film with Shivanna is said to be a new-age action drama, with the story unfolding over two timelines. Shooting will begin once Shivarajkumar completes work for Bhajarangi 2, directed by Harsha under the banner of Jayanna Combines.
