Shivarajkumar associates with Sathya Jyothi Films for a cop film
The film will be directed by Ravi Arasu, who has previously helmed the Tamil films, Ayngaran and Eetti
Shivarajkumar is a seasoned actor when it comes to playing a cop, and he is set to don the khaki yet again for a film directed by Ravi Arasu.
For this film, Shivanna, who is currently shooting for Bhajarangi 2, is collaborating with a well-known banner in the south, Sathya Jyothi Films. The director, who has helmed Tamil films like Ayngaran and Eetti, was keen on working with Shivanna for a while. Having watched films such as Tagaru and Mufti, the director felt this cop’s role suited him well. Confirming his association with Shivarajkumar, producer Thiyagarajan tells us the star value of the actor is phenomenal and the production house is glad to be joining hands with him.
Sathya Jyothi Films, which has existed for over 50 years, has predominantly produced Tamil films from Kamal Haasan's Moondram Pirai to Viswasam, starring Ajith Kumar, and the yet-to-be-released Pataas featuring Dhanush. A film with Shivanna will be their second project in Kannada. They had earlier produced Sathya Jyothi (1986) that featured Vishnuvardhan in the lead.
The film is touted to be more of a revenge drama happening over two timelines. “This is going to be a new-age action entertainer and something more than regular commercial drama. This will be the next project for Shivanna after Bhajarangi 2, and we plan to start shooting sometime in February 2020,” says a member from the production house.
