The theatrical rights of comedy suspense thriller Operation Alamelamma have been bagged by Hombale Films.
The production house is known for making blockbusters like Raajakumara, Ninnindale and Masterpiece. This will also be the first distribution venture of Hombale Films and Operation Alamelamma is expected to get wide publicity through this association.
Karthik Gowda, Executive Producer of Hombale Films, confirmed this development on Twitter.
This movie marks the debut of Manish Rishi, who is the brother of popular Radio Jockey Nethra.
Manish and Shraddha Srinath will play the lead pair in the film.
Shraddha made her acting debut with Kohinoor in 2005 and some of her hit movies include U Turn and Kaatru Veliyidai.
Apart from Operation Alamelamma, Shraddha has three Tamil movies in her kitty including Ivan Thanthiran, Vikram Vedha and Richie, and Kannada film Shadibhagya.
Operation Alamelamma, bankrolled jointly by Amrej Suryavanshi and Suni under the banners Suni Cinemas and StarFab, is directed by Suni, who had also penned the story. Judah Sandy has composed music for this venture with Abhishek Kasargod cranking the camera and Sachin editing it.
Two singles from the album have been released so far to positive reviews and plans are afoot to hold a grand audio launch, say sources. Music composer Judah Sandy has reportedly come up with peppy tunes, which will make the songs chartbusters, say sources close to the film unit.
Suni made his debut with Simple Agi Ondh Love Story in 2013 and has directed films like Ulidavaru Kandanthe, Bahuparak, and Simple Aaginnond Love Story.
