Kannada Superstar Shiva Rajkumar has inked a deal to star in a movie titled SRK. Though the title is an acronym of his name, Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan is also popularly referred as SRK. At first, Shiva Rajkumar was hesitant to go for that particular title but eventually the filmâ€™s director Lakki Gopal convinced him that SRK could mean so many things including Simple, Ruling, King.
The film went on the floors on Wednesday, November 1, to coincide with the Kannada Rajyotsava Day. The motion poster of the title was released amidst much fanfare with the Rajkumar family attending the event. Interestingly, Lakki Gopal happens to be Shiva Rajkumarâ€™s nephew and he will be making his debut as director with SRK.
To be bankrolled by Kiran Kumar C Gowda and Aravind B Gowda under the banner KK Productions, the film will have music by composer Ajaneesh Lokanath of Kirik Party fame. Director Chethan Kumar will be penning the dialogues for this project.
According to reports, SRK is about a dance master who lives a peaceful life until certain events throw his life out of gear and how he embarks on a journey to set it right. The film deals with one of the important social concerns that the country is facing today â€“ women's safety.
On working with a debutant, Shiva Rajkumar said that he is glad and honoured to be working youngsters and is looking forward to join the sets. More details about SRK will be revealed soon, we hear.
Shiva Rajkumar, one of the most wanted and busiest stars in Sandalwood, works in about five films a year. He is currently busy with the Prem directorial Villain in which he shares the screen space with Kiccha Sudeep.
