Producer Ramesh Reddy takes over Gaalipata 2
The film, directed by Yogaraj Bhat, will now be made under the banner of Suraj Productions. The romantic drama stars Ganesh, Diganth, Pawan Kumar and Anant Nag
Even before going on floors, Yogaraj Bhat's Gaalipata 2, has undergone yet another change. While the makers first replaced Sharan and Rishi with Ganesh and Diganth, it has now come to light that the producer of the film is set to be changed too.
The film, which is set to go on floors mid-November, was initially going to be produced by Mahesh Danannavar. However, the producer has decided to back out of this project, and instead bankroll Yogaraj's next with Sharan. Gaalipata 2 will now be taken over by Suraj Productions' Ramesh Reddy, the producer of films like Uppu Huli Kara, Paddehulli, Nathicharami, and the latest thriller, 100, starring Ramesh Aravind.
An agreement has been made between the new producer, director, and the lead actors, and a formal announcement is likely to be made soon. Meanwhile, Gaalipata 2, which also features Anant Nag in an important role, has also seen a change in the female cast. Initially, Aditi Prabhudeva, Sonal Monteiro and Sharmiela Mandre were finalised, and the team was looking to sign up a Chinese or a Korean actor too. However, the multi-starrer romantic comedy-drama may now rope in Vaibhavi Shandilya, Malayalam heroine Samyuktha Menon, and Sharmiela. The film may also feature Nishvika Naidu in an important role. However, according to sources, this is a tentative list and the crew will take the final call in the coming days.
Meanwhile, the director is ready with the script, and the subject, which is said to consist of humour, romance and emotions. The makers are also planning to sign up cinematographer Advaitha Gurumurthy and music director Arjun Janya for the film.
