Will Kajal Aggarwal enter Kannada cinema with Kabza?
Kajal Aggarwal might make her debut in Kannada with the Upendra-starrer
Director R Chandru is turning Upendra’s film, Kabza, into a pan-Indian project. The filmmaker plans to release it in seven Indian languages. The heroine of the film is still undecided, and while there are a few names associated with the project, Kajal Aggarwal seems to be the front runner for the role.
According to a source, the director has been in talks with Kajal’s manager and has been visiting Hyderabad to discuss the project with the Indian 2 actor. “Kajal is impressed with the subject, but the call sheet allocation seems to be her issue,” says the source.
If things pan out well, Kajal might make her foray into Kannada cinema with Kabza, which will also be released in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Hindi, Marathi, and Bengali.
The film’s launch is set to take place later today, and the grand event will be attended by Century Star Shivarajkumar, Police Commissioner Bhaskar Rao, politicians UT Khader and GT Devegowda, and leading members of the film fraternity.
Kabza, which features Upendra in the role of a don, is being made under the banner of SS Enterprises, which will collaborate with seven production houses from various regions.
The film is set in the 1980s and will be shot extensively in Bengaluru, Mumbai, Madurai, and Mangaluru. The ambitious project will have Jagapati Babu playing one of the antagonists, and the director is in talks with biggies like Nana Patekar, Manoj Bajpai, Pradeep Rawat, Prakash Raj, Samuthirakani, and Jaya Prakash Reddy to star in the project.
