Kempegowda 2, starring Komal as a cop, is gearing up for release on August 9. The trailer of the film is already out and has captured the attention of movie buffs. Also, the lead star’s new look is the talk of tinsel town. Kempegowda 2 has been through the censors and certified with U/A.

Talking about the film, producer A Vinodh said in a media interaction, “I wanted to do a movie in Kannada and was introduced to Shankar Gowda and Komal. I liked the subject they were working on and thought it was a good project to be associated with, considering that Shankar is an experienced filmmaker and Komal was returning to the big screens with a complete makeover, in terms of his onscreen image, physique and the genre of cinema. It seemed like a good break for everyone and that’s how I came on board. I want to make neat films that are a complete package in terms of entertainment and ensure returns on investment. Kempegowda 2 is in line with this agenda.”

On donning the director’s robes for the first time, Shankar Gowda was earlier quoted by the Times of India as saying, “Initially, we thought that adman Rosh Mohan would direct the film, but he’s working on another one of our projects. Considering that this film is based on my script, we thought that it is only apt that I direct, as I am the best person to bring my vision to the big screen.”

Mumbai-based model Niva Sharma stars opposite Komal in the film.

It may be mentioned here that Kempegowda was a 2011 action entertainer starring Sudeep and Ragini Dwivedi in the lead roles. The film was directed by Sudeep and produced by Shankar Gowda. It was a remake of the Tamil film Singam directed by Hari. However, Komal’s Kempegowda 2 is not a sequel to that film, confirm sources in the know.
