Rajendra Singh Babu to make a Kannada-Chinese bilingual
The director assures that this project will go on floors only after he completes work on the Darshan-starrer Gandugali Madakari Nayaka
Rajendra Singh Babu is currently prepping for the period drama Gandugali Madakari Nayaka, produced by Rockline Venkatesh and starring Darshan. Meanwhile, he is also getting ready to direct and produce a bilingual (Kannada and Chinese) film.
Confirming this, the filmmaker says, “I will be co-producing the film along with a production house in China. The first round of discussion was held on Monday.” He adds, “I met this team from China through my close friend and MLC, Mohan Kondajji. Things were finalised a couple of days ago.”
Babu, who is bringing together artistes from China and Karnataka for the film, tells us, “We will have a hero and heroine from here and there, which is the same plan with regard to character artistes.”
“The project will roll only after I complete Gandugali Madakari Nayaka. There is still a lot of paperwork that needs to be done, before we close the deal,” he says.
According to Babu, the Chinese consulate is keen to strengthen cultural ties between Karnataka and China. “It will be a commercial entertainer, but made in my style. I don’t like to call it either an art film or a commercial film. I want this to be an eye-opener to the Kannada market,” he adds.
