That Hamsalekha would be wielding the megaphone for a history-based subject was reported by City Express, when we had mentioned that the musician-turned-director plans to helm a film based on either 
Gandugali Madakari Nayaka or Raja Bicchugathii Baramanna Nayaka, books written by BL Venu. 
An official announcement on this will be shared by the director on June 23, which is also his birthday. Rumours have it that Hamsalekha, known as Naadha Brahma, will be first taking up Raja Bichhugathii Baramanna Nayaka.

According to latest buzz, Hamsalekha is said to have roped in senior actor Dingri Nagaraj’s son Raj Vardhan for the lead in this period drama.  Having made his acting debut with Noorondu Nenapu, the actor is said to be getting ready to play the lead character in Bichhugathii, and is leaving no stone unturned to  get into the skin of the character, say sources. 

Raj Vardhan is currently said to be concentrating on horse riding and is on a rigourous fitness regime, pictures of which are surfacing on social media. A few stars were being considered to be part of this historical film, but owing to their prior commitments, Hamsalekha decided to go with a newcomer who can completely commit to the project. 

If all goes as per plan, this film will definitely boost Raj Vardhan’s career. The actor has completed shooting for his other projects - FLY and IRA - but they have gotten stuck for various reasons. However, he is now adamant to start afresh, and this historical film will be like a re-launch for this 6-foot-tall hero. Now, we’re just waiting for more details to be revealed.
