Choreographer-actor Sundar Mugur to play major role in Niranjan’s Superstar
Shooting of the film, directed by Ramesh Venkatesh Babu, will resume in December
Superstar will mark Niranjan Sudhindra’s debut film as a hero, and director Ramesh Venkatesh Babu is roping in a stellar star cast for the project. The makers have now managed to bring in well-known dance choreographer and senior actor, Sundar Mugur, to play a major role.
The director had, in fact, sketched this particular character keeping in mind Sundar Mugur, father of actor-director Prabhudheva, and he has succeeded in getting the 82-year-old artiste’s nod. Sundar will be joining the team when they begin the next shooting schedule in December.
As the title suggests, the film will see Niranjan playing a top dancer who later becomes a superstar in his field. The first teaser was released on August 20.
About 20 per cent of the shoot has been completed, and the makers are currently in the process of finalising the heroine and a few other actors. Ramesh, who has written the story and screenplay, is also producing the film under the banner, RVB Cinemas, in association with Mylari Productions.
Superstar will have music by Raghavendra V and cinematography by Yogi.
