While fans of Puneeth Rajkumar are eagerly waiting for the release of Anjaniputra, which is the actor’s next film, a lot of hype has been created about his next film with director Shashank, as it is made under Puneeth’s home banner PRK Productions.
The first technician to come on board will be V Harikrishna. This will be the music director’s 11th film with Puneeth. Harikrishna gave the industry hit song Bombe Heluthaite from Raajakumara. His first association with Puneeth was for Raj - The Showman, and was followed by hit films like Ram, Jackie, Hudugaru, Paramathma, and others.
The makers are planning to begin shooting from January 2018, and Shashank’s film promises to throw a lot of surprises at audiences, including Puneeth’s look undergoing a massive transformation. The director tells us that the actor is using the trial and error method with his look for the film, like whether he wants to be bearded or clean-shaven.
The director did not wish to dish out details about the characterization, but our sources say that Puneeth will be seen playing a character in his mid 20s, attempting to look as young as 25. Shashank is keen to talk about the look, and will shed more light when the characters are revealed to the public. Fans can expect more interesting content from this actor-director pair in 2018.
