One of the most anticipated films of the year, Kotigobba 3, starring Kiccha Sudeep in the lead, will go on the floors from March 2.

The star is currently busy with The Villain, in which he is sharing screen space with Shiva Rajkumar. With the film nearing completion, he is all set to get on the sets of Kotigobba 3. To be directed by debutant Shiva Karthik, the film will be produced by Soorappa Babu.

The pre-production work is going on full swing so that the shooting can begin on March 2 as planned. Reports say that the team will begin the proceedings with a song recording. The technical crew of the film include Arjun Janya for music and Shekar Chandru for cinematography. On Sudeep’s role in the film, we hear that he will be playing a con man.

Kotigobba 2, a smash hit, was directed by KS Ravi Kumar and starred Kiccha Sudeep and Nithya Menen as the lead pair. The film was produced by Rockline Venkatesh and MB Babu under the banners Rockline Productions and Rambabu Productions. A huge box office success, the film raked in about Rs 45 to 50 crore at the box office when it released in August 2016.

For Kotigobba 3, Soorappa Babu has apparently offered Sudeep a staggering Rs 8 crore remuneration, the highest ever in the actor’s career.

Sudeep has a bunch of films in his kitty, including The Villain, which is slated for release on April 27, and Phailwan which is in the making. He also has Risen needing his attention which will mark his debut in Hollywood. Sudeep is currently bankrolling Ambi Ning Vayassaytho, in which he is playing a cameo role. This film has Ambareesh in the lead role and is the remake of the Tamil blockbuster Pa Pandi, which was directed by Dhanush.
