Reports from the Kannada film industry are that acclaimed director P Vasu may soon direct a film with Shiva Rajkumar in the lead. Sources in the know say that actor – producer Dwarkish will be bankrolling the venture. It may be mentioned here that P Vasu has worked with both Shiva Rajkumar as well as Dwarkish earlier in Shiva Linga and Apthamitra respectively. Incidentally, Apthamitra, which had Vishnu Vardhan and Soundarya as the lead pair, was a smash hit and was screened in Bengaluru theatres for one year, which is not a mean achievement.

Dwarkish’s last film Amma I Love You, which he had produced under his banner Dwarakish Chitra, hit the marquee on June 15th this year and is doing well at the box office. The film, which was the remake of the Tamil blockbuster Pichaikkaran, starring Vijay Anthony, had Chiranjeevi Sarja playing the lead role.

With Dwarkish and Shiva Rajkumar teaming up with the hit director P Vasu, movie buffs are excited and want to know more about the project. However, we hear only the director has been confirmed for now and the rest of the details such as the cast and crew are being worked out.

Shiva Rajkumar, in the mean time, has signed two new projects – one with director Yograj Bhat and the other with Chandrashekar Bandiyappa. The star is currently busy with the Ravi Varma directorial Rustum, which went on to the floors recently. The film has Shraddha Srinath playing his love interest and Mayuri his sister. Produced under the banner Jayanna Combines, Rustum is progressing well. Shiva Rajkumar is also expecting the release of The Villain which is currently in the post production mode. It is a multi starrer that has Sudeep sharing the screen space with Shiva Rajkumar along with Amy Jackson.
