The shooting for the Kannada film Yuva Ratna has been progressing for quite some time and little bits of information about the film is being revealed to the media from time to time. This certainly has the movie buffs anticipating its release eagerly. According to the latest reports, Prakash Raj has been roped in to play an important role in this flick, which has Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar in the lead role.

Sources in the know say that Prakash Raj may appear either as a college principal or a lecturer in this entertainer, but there is no official word on his role yet. Interestingly, Puneeth will be seen as a college student in the film. The title Yuva Ratna comes with the tagline ‘Power of Youth’, which gives an indication that the film might have a political touch.

Yuva Ratna is directed by Santosh Ananddram, who had earlier collaborated with Puneeth to deliver the smash hit film Rajakumaraa. The film is bankrolled under the Hombale Films banner. The production house had recently tasted success with the hit film KGF starring Yash.

Yuva Ratna has Sayyesha playing the female lead and this is her first film in the Kannada film industry. Actor Triveni Rao, who has seen in the Shiva Rajkumar starrer Tagaru, is playing an important role in this film apart from Mamatha Sanathkumar, the popular woman bodybuilder from Karnataka. V Harikrishna is composing music for the film, which is likely to hit the marquee later this year though the release date is yet to be finalised.

Besides Yuva Ratna, Puneeth Rajkumar also has James in his kitty. The film will be helmed by director Chetan Kumar and bankrolled by Kishore Pathikonda. According to reports, James will be a complete entertainer with all the massy elements included. The groundwork is progressing briskly to ensure that it goes on the floors soon.
