Producer Umapathy is happy with Prashanth Neel's involvement in Madagaja script
The film stars Sriimurali in the lead role and is directed by Mahesh Kumar
Sriirmurali’s upcoming commercial entertainer, Madagaja, directed by Mahesh Kumar, was initially meant to go on floors this month. However, the film has been delayed as director Prashanth Neel is coming into the picture, which, according to producer Umapathy, is a good move.
It is a known fact that Prashanth Neel’s directorial debut, Ugramm, elevated Sriimurali’s career, and since then the director-actor duo has maintained a good rapport. Now, amidst his busy schedule with Yash's KGF Chapter 2 shoot, Prashanth Neel is looking at the Madagaja script too.
“Mahesh is in touch with Prashanth Neel, and I am glad that a director of his calibre is getting involved with the project. The script is getting fine-tuned, and with his inputs, the story is shaping up better,” says Umapathy, adding that the shooting will begin after he has the final version in hand. “The project will take off either in December or in January.”
Mahesh, who made his debut with Ayogya, is teaming up with Sriimurali for his second outing. Madagaja, which is touted to be an action film with family sentiments, will feature the actor as an NRI.
With Vidya Sriimurali designing the costumes for the actor, the film has music by Arjun Janya and cinematography by Sreesha Kuduvalli. The team is on the lookout for the female lead and other cast members.
