"Raana was a script that was only written for Yash. Without him, the story will be scrapped." This was the reply from director Harsha to speculations that the script, which was meant for Rocking Star, will be done with another actor.  

Since Yash will get busy with KGF Chapter 2, and Raana is taking time to go on floors, reports said that it will now star Shivarajkumar. “Yash and I are in discussion and will be taking up the project, but some time later. Raana was written keeping him in mind, and if not Yash, I will not take up the film with any other actor. Me associating with Shivarajkumar for Raana is fake news,” said Harsha.

I have a couple for stories for Shivanna, says director

About working with Shivarajkumar, the director added, “I have time and again mentioned that I am a big fan of Shivarajkumar since I shook his hands at the airport when I was in class III. Who would not want to make a film with the Century Star? He is an encyclopedia, and having worked with him in Bharjari and Vajrakaya, I know what it is like to work with him.”

The director of Seetharama Kalyana reveals he will be in talks with Shivanna for a project in the near future. “I have a couple of subjects and I will be discussing them with him soon.”
