The Kannada superstar Shiva Rajkumar’s next film Bhajarangi 2 will hit the marquee in April 2020. The filmmakers are eyeing the summer release to cash in on the holiday season. The film’s progress was slowed down following its lead star’s shoulder surgery in London some months ago and his recuperation thereafter. Shivanna joined the sets of Bhajarangi 2 a couple of months ago and has been actively part of the shooting schedules since then.

Harsha is wielding the megaphone for this venture which has raised the expectation levels as the duo are teaming up for the third time for Bhajarangi 2. On choosing the title, the director had reportedly said that it will have no connection with Bhajarangi but he chose the title because his team liked it. 

So, from what we gather, Bhajarangi 2 will be a completely different story. The film will have Bhavana sharing the screen space with Shiva Rajkumar. The technical crew of Bhajarangi 2 will be Arjun Janya for music composition, J Swamy to handle the camera and Deepu S Kumar for editing.

Shivanna’s last film to release was Ayushman Bhava on November 15. Besides Shivanna in the lead role, veteran actors Prabhu and Suhasini Mani Ratnam played pivotal roles in this flick. Rachita Ram played Shiva Rajkumar’s heroine and Nidhi Subbiah was seen in an important role. The star cast also included Ananth Nag, Sadhu Kokila, and Rangayana Raghu in supporting roles. Produced by B. S. Dwarakish and Yogish Dwarakish Bunggale, the technical crew of Ayushman Bhava included Guru Kiran for music, Gautham Raju for editing and PKH Doss for cinematography. The film was bankrolled by B. S. Dwarakish and Yogish Dwarakish Bunggale under the banner Dwarakish Chitra. The star’s other ongoing projects in the pipeline are Drona and SRK.
