Puneeth Rajkumarâ€™s Anjani Putra may have received mixed reviews but the film was nevertheless a box-office success. This has prompted its producer MN Kumar to get Puneeth Rajkumar back to his fold. Yes, it is now confirmed that the producer will be bankrolling a Puneeth Rajkumar starrer under his banner MNK Movies.
The Power Star is currently busy with the Pawan Wadeyar directorial Nata Saravabhouma and will be focusing on it for the next few months. This film is being produced by Rockline Venkatesh under his banner Rockline Entertainments. Soon after this project is wrapped up, the star will be moving over to the Santosh Ananddram directorial, which has not been titled yet.
Reports say that Puneethâ€™s film with MN Kumar will begin only after he is done with these two projects but the announcement was made on March 17 to coincide with his birthday. Therefore, to know details about the director and the rest of the star cast and crew, we need to wait for some more time.
Anjani Putra, released on December 21 last year, was directed by A Harsha. An action entertainer, it had Puneeth Rajkumar and Rashmika Mandanna playing the lead pair with Ramya Krishnan, Mukesh Tiwari, P. Ravishankar and Akhilendra Mishra playing supporting roles. Incidentally, it is the remake of the Tamil flick Poojai, which was directed by Hari and had Vishal in the lead role.
Puneeth Rajkumar began this year with the film Humble Politician Nograj in which he made a guest appearance as himself. While fans were waiting to know about this next project, he impressed all with his first look in Nata Sarvabhouma in which he apparently plays an actor. The first look was released to coincide with the birthday on March 17.
