It won’t be wrong to say that Shivarajkumar is currently the actor most in demand in Sandalwood, with directors and producers queuing up to work with him. Next to team up with the actor will be Mugulu Nage’s director, who is known for his unique style of storytelling and characterisation. When Yogaraj Bhat and Shivarajkumar come together, for the very first time, they are sure to come out with a hit movie.

While there have been reports of Bhatru writing scripts for young actors including Ishan and Pradeep, we now hear that the director has kept aside all of those and is currently busy scripting a story for Shivanna. It will be an action-thriller and the story has been discussed with the actor, who has apparently given the green signal after listening to Bhatru’s one-liner. The team is now currently developing that into a story.

Meanwhile producers are lining up to invest in a project that will have this combination of director and actor.  Bhatru and Shivanna now have to decide who they want to work with.

Our source says, “The director and his team are working on the first part of the story, which will be tailored to suit Shivanna’s onscreen persona. The script writing will take atleast two months, after which the team will progress with the rest of the work.”

Bhatru, we hear, did have a story for Ishan but that project had to be dropped after one round of discussion. As of now, Yogaraj Bhat is focussing only on Shivanna’s movie. The director is also looking to work with Sudeep for a second time, and the project could take off when the actor’s dates are available.
