Actor Yogesh launches first production venture Kamsa

Directed by Ranjith Kumar Gowda, the film will be made in Kannada and Tamil, and the makers are trying to sign Tamil actor Samuthirakani

Published: 09th December 2020

Actor Yogesh (popularly known as Yogi), who started his acting career with Duniya, is one who has made a mark in the Kannada film industry. He has now decided to launch his own production house under the name of his daughter, Shrinika.

The first film made under his home banner, titled Kamsa, will be a bilingual made in Kannada and Tamil. It will be directed by Ranjith Kumar Gowda, who has previously helmed Apple Cake.

“Being in the film industry for these many years, I wanted to do something other than acting, and I thought a production house would be my best next move. Coincidentally, I got my hands on a fantastic story,” says Yogi, who will also be a part of the film. “The director has also written the story. He has come up with an underworld subject which takes the audience back to the character I played in Nanda Loves Nanditha, my first film as hero. It is a very strong script,” he adds, revealing that the team is also in talks with noted Tamil actor Samuthirakani to bring him on board.

Kamsa is now in the pre-production stage, and we hope to begin the project in March 2021,” says Yogi, who has done films such as Ambari and Sidlingu.

Meanwhile, Yogi has completed the shooting of a project which he took up post-lockdown. The film titled Naanu, Adu mathu Saroja is helmed by Madamakki director Vinay Preetham.

The actor’s next film will be Lankasura, whose shooting will start in mid-January. This commercial entertainer will have Yogi collaborating with director Pramod Kumar. He will be sharing screen space with Vinod Prabhakar. Yogi will also be a part of Shogun, a project conceived by Neenasam Manju.
