Rathnan Prapancha to go on floors on November 9
The first schedule of the comedy-drama starring Dhananjay and Reba Monica John, directed by Rohit Padaki and backed by KRG Studios, will begin in Mysuru
Dhananjay-starrer Rathnan Prapancha, KRG Studios’s first production venture, will go on floors on November 9. The film, directed by Rohit Padaki, will be the first collaboration of the actor and director for a commercial entertainer. It will be jointly produced by Karthik Gowda and Yogi G Raj.
The makers, who have finalised the shooting locations, will begin the first schedule in Mysuru, followed by Haveri. They plan to wrap up the shooting in Kashmir.
Dhananjay, one of the busiest actors in Kannada cinema currently, has completed shooting three projects — a film directed by Jai Sankar, S Ravindranath’s next project, and Badavarascal. He will next be joining the sets of Rathnan Prapancha.
Rohit Padaki, who has come up with a comedy-drama that blends humour with emotions, has cast Dhananjay in the role of a common man. The film also features Reba Monica John as the female lead. Reba is making her Kannada cinema debut with the Rishi-starrer Sakalakala Vallabha, and this will be her second outing.
Apart from the lead actors, the production house has brought on board senior actor Umashree, who is returning to the silver screen after five years. She will be seen in the role of a middle-class mother. Rathnan Prapancha will also feature Pramod of Premiere Padmini fame in a major role.
The film has music by Ajaneesh B Lokanath and cinematography by Sreesha Kuduvalli, while editing will be handled by Deepu S Kumar.
