Shiva Rajkumar’s next film in the pipeline is My Name is Anji. The film will be directed by A Harsha and the groundwork for it is currently on. According to reports, the shooting of My Name is Anji will begin in June this year. Incidentally, Harsha and Shiva Rajkumar have worked together in Bhajarangi and Vajrakaya in the past and this is their third venture together.

About the female lead to star opposite Shiva Rajkumar in My Name is Anji, we hear that it will be Bhavana. The filmmakers feel that she would be the right choice to play the role as she shares a good rapport with the hero having worked with him in the past. Touted to be a commercial entertainer, My Name is Anji will be bankrolled by Jayanna and Bogendra under the banner Jayanna Films.

While My Name is Anji is in the pre-production mode, Shiva Rajkumar’s next film release will be Kavacha. The film is in the post production stage and its release date is expected to be officially announced soon. Kavacha, which is directed by GVR Vasu, is bankrolled by MVV Sathyanarayanan under the banner Hayagriva Movie Adishtana. A remake of Mohanlal’s Malayalam blockbuster Oppam that was directed by ace director Priyadarshan, Shiva Rajkumar will be seen playing a blind man in this movie. While Kruthika Jayakumar plays the lead opposite Shiva Rajkumar, the star cast also includes Isha Koppikar, Baby Meenakshi and Vasishta N Simha in pivotal roles. Rahul Shrivastav is cranking the camera for the film and the music is composed by Arjun Janya.

The star is currently busy with Rustum, a Ravi Varma directorial. Shraddha Srinath has been roped in to play the female lead in it and Mayuri will be seen as Shiva Rajkumar’s sister. A romantic action entertainer, Rustum will mark the directorial debut of ace stunt master Ravi Varma. Anoop Seelin is scoring the music for this movie and Mahendra Simha is wielding the camera. The film is produced by Jayanna and Bhogendra, who are bankrolling My Name is Anji as well.
