Incidentally, this will be Vijay Milton’s debut Kannada directorial. The latest update is that the film was flagged off on Thursday, with the official pooja at the Dodda Ganapati temple in Bengaluru, in the presence of all the team members. Shiva Rajkumar had tweeted a photo and captioned it, “Back to work for my new film.”

It will be a 40-day-long schedule, with Dhananjaya, who will reportedly play an important role in the film, will be on the sets on November 25th. The news that the Dia actor Pruthvi Ambaar has signed on for this flick as well. With a great star cast, movie buffs are eagerly expecting more information about this yet-to-be-titled venture.

While the Vijay Milton film is taking off now, Shiva Rajkumar signed a new film with well-known director Yogaraj Bhat a few days ago. It was also reported that the multi-faceted actor-director-choreographer Prabhu Deva has been roped in to share the screen space with Shiva Rajkumar. Speaking about the film in an interview to the Times of India, Yogaraj revealed, “I will take up this project after I complete the shoot of my current film Gaalipata 2 and after Shivarajkumar wraps up his current obligations. Prabhudheva is delighted to be a part of the project.”
