Director Mahesh Kumar resumes work for MadaGaja with song recording
The Sriimurali-starrer, produced by Umapathy Srinivas, has music composed by Ravi Basrur
MadaGaja director Mahesh Kumar is back at work. He is currently busy with song recordings along with music director Ravi Basrur. Starring Sriimurali, the film is bankrolled by Umapathy Films. The action entertainer has Ashika Ranganath playing the female lead, in her first role opposite Sriimurali.
“We are currently recording the songs for Madagaja. The film will consist of four songs, which will be mostly situational. Lyrics for two of the tracks have been written by Chethan Kumar, while the other two songs will be penned by Ravi Basrur and Kinnal Raj," says the director.
He adds, "We are through with 25 per cent of the shoot; the Varanasi schedule was completed just before the lockdown. The team is now waiting for the government to grant permission to resume the shoot. Our plan is chalked out, and we will begin the shooting in Mysuru, followed with Gundlupete, Hognekal and Bengaluru.”
Madagaja also has Mufti cinematographer Naveen Kumar on board and Mohan B Kere will helm the art work.
Meanwhile, the director has almost finalised the rest of the cast, which will also include two villains, played by actors who have a pan-India appeal. An official announcement will be made by the production house when the actors join the sets.
