Nanda Kishore to direct Shivarajkumar in a Kannada-Telugu bilingual

Bankrolled by Gautam Reddy, Kirthi Chilukuri and Vivek Reddy, an official announcement with further details will be made on late Dr Rajkumar’s birthday

Published: 17th March 2021

Director Nanda Kishore’s meetings with Shivarajkumar had earlier led to speculations about the duo teaming up for a project. According to reliable sources, Nanda, known for films like Adhyaksha, Ranna, Mukunda Murari, and Pogaru, will be joining hands with Shivanna.

The bilingual film will be made in Kannada and Telugu. An official announcement of the project will be made on April 24, which marks the late Dr Rajkumar’s 92nd birthday. This is the first time the actor and director are collaborating.

Touted as a big-budget film, it will have a story written by Priyadarshini Ram and will be made with a big star cast. It is set to be produced by Gautam Reddy, Kirthi Chilukuri, and Vivek Reddy under the Melodrama Studios banner.

Meanwhile, Shivarajkumar is awaiting the release of Bhajarangi 2, directed by A Harsha, on May 14. He is currently shooting for Shivappa, directed by Vijay Milton.

The actor’s 124th film will be with writer-turned-director Ram Dhulipudi, which will be followed by his 125th film with Harsha. This will be made under Geetha Pictures and shooting will begin in either June or July. The film with Nanda will probably be his next.

Nanda Kishore, on the other hand, will collaborate with Dhruva Sarja for the second time for Dubaari, which is produced by Uday K Mehta.
