Kannada star Chiranjeevi Sarja is in need of a big hit with his film failing at the box office in a row. The star made his acting debut nearly a decade ago and is yet to make a mark for himself. Critics opine that the poor selection of scripts and relying mainly on remakes is the cause for his failure and the young actor is now working on setting it right.
He will soon begin shooting for his next venture which will be directed by Vijay Kiran and bankrolled by Uday Mehta. Interestingly, Vijay Kiran and Chiru had collaborated for Ram Leela three years ago. The film was remake of the Telugu movie Loukyam. The muhurat of their new venture together will happen tomorrow, November 28, say sources.
Chiruâ€™s last release was Amma I Love You which was the remake of the hit Tamil movie Pichaikaran, starring Vijay Anthony. With this film, he has had three movie releases this year. Further, the actor has gone ahead to ink another deal.
The film is directed by V Samudra and Chiru will be sharing the screen space with Chetan Kumar of Aa Dinagaul fame. It is interesting to note that there are reports that Chetan Kumarâ€™s role is bordered on the lines of the revolutionary leader Che Guevara and Chiranjeevi Sarja will be seen playing a cop, an encounter specialist at that.
The film, which has been titled Ranam, will be made in Kannada as well as Telugu. Bankrolled by R Srinivas, Guru Kiran will be composing music for the Kannada version and Niranjan Babu will be cranking the camera. Another piece of information about this film is that its makers are planning to rope in a top hero from Sandalwood to make a cameo appearance and an announcement regarding this will be made officially.
With Ranam scheduled for release later this year, Chiru will be moving over to the Vijay Kiran directorial.
