According to Bangalore Mirror, Poonam had reportedly told the director that she wanted to act in a Kannada movie a long time ago.
Yuvaraj, who will also be making a debut in Sandalwood said, "For long, I had been waiting to direct a movie in Kannada and my dream is fulfilling now. I was working on a script for the last six months and thought Poonam was the best suited for the lady-oriented story. So, when I approached Poonam, she also expressed her love for Kannada movies. So, after finalising the script, we will begin shooting from Monday."
He said that Poonam Pandey will be the main protagonist with no major male leads. He said that the film would meet the standards of the censor board.
