Actors Shivarajkumar and Shashikumar, both of who are contemporaries, are reuniting onscreen after two decades. They will be seen together in SD Vijay Milton’s as-yet-untitled Kannada directorial debut. This film also stars Dhananjaya, Pruthvi Ambaar and Umashree.
Talking about the casting coup, filmmaker Krishna Sarthak, who is backing the film, says, “We are thrilled to have Shashikumar sir on board for the film. He will be playing a pivotal role and will be seen alongside Shivarajkumar throughout the film. Their combination is definitely going to be something that everyone will enjoy.”
Shivarajkumar and Shashikumar were last seen together in the 2001 release Bahala Channagide. The actors had regaled the audiences in the 1990s when they were contemporaries and their collaboration in this film is seen as a major casting coup.
Pruthvi Ambaar to sport a new look in the film
Pruthvi Ambaar, who has been roped in for an important role in the film, told us, “I have been busy finishing my two current commitments – Life Is Beautiful and Sugarless. I need to finish them quickly as I will sport a new look in the film, and will undergo the makeover the moment I wrap up work on those films.”
