It seems, Shivarajkumar is quite the unstoppable force. He is taking up project after project, setting an example to the younger generation.

After completing talkie portions for Srikanta, the actor is now on the sets of Yogi G Raj’s Bangara Son of Bangarada Manushya.

City Express has got hold of a few pictures from the sets of the film.  “My film has nothing to do with Annavaru’s film (Bangarada Manushya). But with the title like Bangaara Son of Bangarada Manushya, there are references to his father’s personality in Shivanna,” says the director.

He says he will talk about the plot after he completing the talkie portions.

Like every director who has worked with Shivanna, he is in awe of the star’s enthusiasm. The director is finding it difficult to keep pace with Shivanna.

“He is so energetic. He’s always on time and only goes to the caravan during the break. Every producer or director hopes for such a same work environment,” he says.

Meanwhile, choreographer Ravi Verma, just back from his schedule with Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees, has also joined the sets.

“He is choreographing an extraordinary action sequence for Shivanna,” he says.

The makers have already planned their third schedule, which will take the team abroad from May 23.

“We will shoot songs and a few scenes at Milan, Venice and Switzerland over 12 days,” he says.
