Not long ago, City Express had revealed that Dhruva Sarja was opting for an original subject in his third film. And this idea has come through with Arjun Sarja (Dhruva’s uncle) giving a green signal to a story written by none other than Bahaddur director Chethan Kumar who will also be helming the film, which has been titled Bharjari. Interestingly, this film will bring back the Bahaddur team together with RS Productions. Other people finalised for the project include V Harikrishna as the music director, Sreesha Kuduvalli as the cameraman and with Deepu S Kumar as part of the edit desk.
Confirming the news, director Chethan said, “Dhruva has been listening to the script for the last three months, ever since Bahaddur completed 100 days in January. Mine is the 54th story, which has been approved by both him and his uncle. I am glad the team was impressed with Bharjari and am equally happy to be working with Dhruva and Srikanth again,” he says.
Chethan who has completed the story and screenplay will now get ready with the dialogues and do the preproduction work. “I hope to start by May end. I now have a huge responsibility with two big back-to-back projects. After I complete this film with Dhruva, I have to immediately start shooting for James with Puneeth Rajkumar. This time, I have a target to complete Bharjari by November and to release it by December,” he says.
