'Directing Shivarajkumar in Bhairathi Ranagal is my responsibility'
Mufti director Narthan says that he may not helm the Hattrick Hero’s 125th film, but he is certainly looking forward to directing him soon
We had earlier reported that Narthan would direct Shivarajkumar's 125th film, Bhairathi Ranagal. However, going by the latest development, it seems that the Shivanna-Narthan collaboration may not be the Century Star's 125th release.
According to the director, the Covid-19 pandemic changed the entire schedule in 2020. “Directing Shivanna is my responsibility, and he has also liked and approved the storyline. This was a project we had planned just after Mufti, but it couldn’t take off at that time. Shivanna got involved with other commitments, and I also got busy with my project with Yash. I have been working on this Yash-starrer over the last year. The number doesn’t matter, and regardless of whether it is Shivanna’s 125th or not, I will be directing Bhairathi Ranagal for him immediately after I complete my present commitment with Yash,” says Narthan.
The one-film-old director also adds that the story of Bhairathi Ranagal is ready, and the team just has to go on the sets. “The project requires a big budget, and I hope to raise the bar post my pan-India film with Yash,” he reveals.
