Rajaguru, Prithvi to join hands for Googly 2
The filmmaker plans to approach Natasaarvabhowma heroine, Anupama Parameshwaran to play the female lead
When Pavan Wadeyar’s Googly starring Yash was released back in 2013, little did they realise that it would be a game-changer of sorts. We will now get to see another film with a similar name. Titled Googly 2, the film will be helmed by Pavan’s associate, Rajaguru B, and will star Prithvi in the lead role.
The grandson of well-known musician GK Venkatesh, Prithvi entered the industry with Naanu Mathu Varalakshmi in 2016. This will be the actor’s second outing. The director, who plans to start shoot from April, clarifies that Googly 2 is not a sequel, and cannot be compared to Googly. “This will be a love story about mismatched couples, and will be told in a fresh manner,” he says.
This film will be presented by Jayanna, and will be produced by K Manjunath. So far, the makers have confirmed Arun Somasundaram as the film’s cinematographer. Meanwhile, Rajaguru plans to approach Natasaarvabhowma heroine, Anupama Parameshwaran to play the female lead, and wants to rope in Kriti Kharbanda, who played the female lead in Googly, for a key role in Googly 2.
“Our production house feels that Anupama will be apt for the role, which even I felt after seeing her work in Natasaarvabhouma. Kriti will have a major role, one who actually brings a twist to the climax. We will be approaching both of them with our script soon,” he says.
