Director R Chandru is basking in glory over his recent film release I Love You, starring Upendra in the lead role, turning out to be a huge hit. I Love You, which stars Rachita Ram opposite Upendra, was directed and produced by Chandru. Sonu Gowda plays a pivotal role in this flick besides a host of actors in supporting roles. The technical crew of I Love You includes music by Kiran Thotambyle and cinematography by Naveen Kumar. The Telugu version of this bilingual film was released in the Telugu-speaking states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana to positive reviews as well.
According to the latest reports, Chandru had narrated a one-liner to Kannada megastar Shiva Rajkumar and it appears that the actor may hop on board.
Shiva Rajkumar is currently in London where he underwent surgery for a shoulder injury that he had sustained earlier this year and is recuperating. The star had completed all his pending films prior to taking a break and going to the UK for his surgery. On Thursday, he tweeted to let his followers know that he was recovering well.
The star is expected to be back in India soon after which an official announcement regarding the project with Chandru will be made.
It may be noted here that the actor currently has a slew of films such as SRK, Bhajarangi 2, Anand and Drona in different stages of production. Incidentally, he and director A Harsha are teaming up for the third time for Bhajarangi 2. Reports say the filmmakers are planning to reveal the star’s first look on his birthday which falls on Friday. On choosing the title, the director had reportedly said that the film will have no connection with Bhajarangi but he chose it because his team liked it. So, from what we gather, Bhajarangi 2 will be a completely different story. The film will have Bhavana sharing screen space opposite Shiva Rajkumar.
