Director Kumar's second film titled Charlie Chaplin

Director Kumar’s debut venture, Chemistry of Kariyappa, was received with critical acclaim. Now, the filmmaker is ensuring that his second project, titled Charlie Chaplin, is bigger than his first attempt.

The film will see singer, music director and Bigg Boss-contestant Naveen Sajju making his acting debut. Tabla Nani will be playing one of the leads in the film, and the makers are in talks with Shivaraj KR Pete to play a major character. “Chemistry of Kariyappa was appreciated by the audience for its comic timing. This one too, will have a humour element, which is evident from the title,” says Kumar. 

Having seen Naveen Sajju during his stint in Bigg Boss, Kumar decided to cast him in his film. “He has a good fan following. It will be interesting to see another aspect to him. I think he will best suit this particular character,” the director says. 

The film is in the final stage of the scripting process, and the team, after a month-long workshop, will start shooting from July. “The entire team of Chemistry of Kariyappa will be working on this project,” he says.

Apart from playing the lead, Naveen Sajju will also score the music. Shiva Seena has been roped in as the film’s cinematographer.
