Rakshit Shetty, Hemanth M Rao, Pushkar Mallikarjunaiah team up for classic romance
The film, titled Sapta Sagaradaache Yello, is made under Pushkar Films and reunites the Godhi Banna Sadharna Mykattu actor, director, and producer team
The director, producer and lead actor of Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu are set to create magic again. Rakshit Shetty will headline a film written and directed by Hemanth M Rao, which will be produced by Pushkar Mallikarjunaiah under his banner, Pushkar Films. The makers shared this news with Cinema Express.
“The project will take off in June after Rakshit completes shooting for his current project, 777 Charlie, which will be done in April,” says Pushkar.
The makers have finalised the film’s title as Sapta Sagaradaache Yello. Shooting will start in full-swing from June.
The production team plans on a release date of December 27, the same date they released Avane Srimannarayana in 2019. The team is in the process of finalising the rest of the cast.
“This was a film we had clarity about, and we knew that in time we would come together again for a project,” says Hemanth, who has come up with a love story this time. “Sapta Sagaradaache Yello is a line from a poem written by Gopalakrishna Adiga, and it was translated into a song sung by C Ashwath. It is a poetic love story, which will take us back to films like Haalu Jenu, Benkiya Bale, Bandhana, Casablanca, and Mouna Ragam. I always wished to bring out that age-old romance in one of my films. It seems to be getting fulfilled now. As with every film of mine, I am working towards a unique storytelling pattern with visual poetry and other elements suited for a commercial entertainer,” he adds.
The film will have Charan scoring the music and cinematography by Advaitha Gurumurthy.
There were reports that Rakshit and Hemanth were initially planning to join hands for Tenali. However, this has now been pushed. “Tenali is a big-scale film, and both of us need to dedicate a lot of time for it, which is not possible at present owing to other commitments. However, the current project we have planned can be done in the given time frame,” says Hemanth, whose last film was Kavaludaari made under PRK Productions. This film is now being remade in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Hindi.
Rakshit Shetty says, “I am very excited to work with Hemanth once again. I heard the concept and it is very interesting. I am eager to play the character he has written. We have the basic outline and are waiting for Hemanth to come up with the full script.”
