Director K Madesh to resume shoot for Lagaam on June 28
Lagaam brings together Upendra and Hariprriya on the silver screen; makers are preparing to roll out the project even as they wait for government approvals to begin shooting
K Madesh’s directorial venture Lagaam starring Upendra is set to go on floors on June 28. The makers are doing the prep work even as they wait for permission from the government to resume shooting. The film, which also stars Haripriyaa as the female lead, had initially planned to commence shooting from April 26, which got pushed due to the second wave.
“We plan to begin shooting in Bengaluru, and we wanted to begin to roll from June 21. We are prepared to go by the protocols laid out by the government. Since we have not received any updates so far, we have now postponed it by a week,” says director K Madesh, who has come up with a political satire subject that will be made in Kannada and dubbed and released in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi.
The film also features Sadhu Kokila, Rangayana, and Shobraj. Madesh has also approached well-known south Indian actor Prabhu for a prominent role. The project, bankrolled by producer M R Gowda, has dialogues penned by MS Ramesh. Rajesh Katta will be cranking the camera, while the music is composed by Sadhu Kokila.
Meanwhile, for Uppi this will be the first project to begin post this lockdown. The actor plans to simultaneously work on R Chandru’s Kabzaa. He also has Trishulam, and Buddhivantha 2, which is in the last leg of shooting.
