Kannada star Raghavendra Rajkumar is all set to stage a comeback with Ammana Mane in which he plays the lead role. The film went on to the floors recently and is scheduled for release early next year.
While more details about the project is being awaited, the latest we hear is that B Jayashree, a popular dubbing artiste and actor has been roped in to play his mother. Incidentally, the film is a family entertainer that will have Raghavendra Rajkumar heading a family.
Nikhil Manju is wielding the megaphone for this venture. Ammana Mane will be a multi-starrer and the director is in talks with a few other heroes to play important roles in it. On the film, the director had in an interview to the Indian Express earlier: “It is a family drama, which looks at work, life and family balance. In his role, Raghavendra Rajkumar has to play the role of a man who has to finely balance his work pressure and keep his family happy.” The star cast of Ammana Mane also has Rohini Nagesh playing a pivotal role.
The film is bankrolled by Athmashree and R S Kumar. While Nikhil Manju is wielding the megaphone for the venture, its story is penned by Sreelalithe and B Shivanand has written the dialogues. Sameer Kulkarni is composing music for the lyrics written by Manojava Galagali. PVR Swamy is cranking the camera and N Aditya Kunigal has been roped in as the editor.
It may be mentioned here that initially it was announced that the star would make his comeback with Manoranjan’s Chillum in which he was supposed to play a negative role. However, on his fans insisting that his comeback shouldn’t be with a negative role, he opted out of the film and the role went to Tollywood actor Jagapathy Babu.
