Hemanth M Rao, riding high on the success of Sapta Sagaradaache Ellofilms(Side A and Side B), is set to direct Shivarajkumar in his next project. The movie will be bankrolled by first-time producer Dr Vaishak J Gowda.
Vaishak, a doctor by profession, has turned producer due to his passion for films, said Hemanth. “He has plans to produce two movies a year under his banner Vaishak J Films.”
Hemanth added that it was Vaishak who pitched the idea of making a movie with Shivarajkumar. “Vaishak is a huge fan of Shivanna. He loved my Kavaludaari as well. In fact, he liked all my films,” said Hemanth.
The filmmaker said the upcoming movie will be an action drama. “I wrote the script after the filming of Sapta Sagaradaache Ello. Shivanna loved the concept,” he said. “It’s difficult to do a movie for him (Shivarajkumar) because he has done over 120 films. He has portrayed diverse characters. But I can promise that the movie will show Shivanna in a new avatar.”
