Chaali Polilu director Veerendra Shetty to make Kannada debut with Savaranadeergha Sandhi
A gangster comedy, the film will launch Ravi Bhat's daughter, Krishnaa, in Kannada cinema.
Veerendra Shetty, who directed and wrote the story, screenplay, and dialogues of the highest-grossing Tulu film, Chaali Polilu, will make his acting and directing debut in Kannada with Savaranadeergha Sandhi. A gangster comedy, the film will launch Ravi Bhat's daughter, Krishnaa, in Kannada cinema.
“It is a film on rowdyism, but it runs on humour, not machetes. The protagonist has no educational background, but is a Kannada grammar freak, and he uses this as his weapon,” says Shetty, who has completed the shoot, and will be submitting the film to the censor board soon. “I prefer to announce my film once I have the product in hand and I have strategically worked around the publicity,” he adds. The cast also includes Padmaja Rao, Krishna Nadig, Niranjan Deshpande and Ravi Mandya.
Made under the banner of Veeru Talkies and Lilac Entertainments, Savaranadeergha Sandhi will have music scored by Mano Murthy, with Loganathan Srinivasan handling the camera.
