Several people debut as producers in  Sandalwood. While a few taste success, others repent their entry into films. A bar and restaurant owner from Bangalore, an agriculturist from Rajankunte, a stationery shop owner from Ramanagar and even a retired military officer have burnt their fingers by investing money in Kannada film industry. Now, a flower merchant from Sampangiramanagar has come forward to realise his late father’s dream of making a Kannada film.

Bharath Kumar G is financing the film Kedigalu  and is also playing a dual role in the film. “Working as a producer for a Kannada film was my father’s dream. He was the managing director of Sri Kanteerava Studios. He used to  tell me that he wanted to make a film but passed away without realising his dream. Now, I want to make it a reality with this film,” says Bharath Kumar.

According to him, the film is about drug menace in rural areas. “Many opine that drug menace is confined only to major cities but it exists in rural areas too,” he said .

Elaborating on his roles in the film Kedigalu, he said, “I am playing two roles —of a drunkard and a police officer —in this film. The director selected me for these roles. I am happy to see myself in a police officer’s uniform on the silver screen,” he said.

He was all praise for Swetha Sanjeevulu, who debut in Upendra’s film Super and acted in Aarakshaka. “I am very happy with her attitude during the shooting. She has attended the shooting for 25 days without any problems,” he said.

The shooting of Kedigalu was held at Kolar, Tumkur,  and Agra. The film’s shooting commenced on September 19, 2011. “We have completed 80 per cent of the talkie portion. We are planning to erect a set at Puttanna Kanagal Studio to shoot the climax,” he said. Krishna, Stalin, Ramakrishna and Pradeep are the other artistes in this film.
