Dhruva Sarja to spend birthday on sets of Pogaru
Wanting a quiet birthday, the actor has requested fans not to gather outside his residence, and instead send him wishes from wherever they are
It’s a working birthday for Dhurva Sarja, who turns a year older today. The actor will be spending his special day on the sets of Pogaru completing the shoot of the pending introductory song, Pogaru Annanige Pogaru.
The actor took to social media to express his desire to not celebrate his birthday this year and requested fans not to gather in front of his house. Instead, he suggested they wish him from wherever they are.
Meanwhile, Cinema Express got hold of a fresh still from Pogaru, which shows Dhruva shaking a leg for the opening song, the music of which is scored by Chandan Shetty. The song is choreographed by Murali Master in his signature style. Joining Dhruva are junior dancers, who have participated in the shoots on a grand set created at HMT by art director Mohan B Kere. The shooting of the track will be completed in two days, and the team will move on to a few days of patchwork next.
Directed by Nanda Kishore and bankrolled by BK Gangadhar, Pogaru has Rashmika Mandanna playing the female lead, and also features Dhananjay in a prominent role. The cast includes Mayuri, Ravi Shankar, Chikkanna, and Kuri Pratap. International bodybuilders Kai Greene, Morgan Aste, Johan Lucas, and Jo Linder will be part of the film's climax.
Post Pogaru, Nanda Kishore and Dhruva will collaborate on another film, which will be produced by Uday K Mehta. The script of this project is now in the final stages and the film is likely to go on floors after the formal launch, which is planned for Vijayadashmi festival.
