Dhruva Sarja’s Bharjari is all set for a grand release, meanwhile dialogue teasers and trailers are keeping the audience on tenterhooks. But his fourth project with Nanda Kishore has taken an interesting turn. We hear that the director has decided to drop the project Hayagreeva, with Dhruva, altogether and instead focus on a new movie titled Poguru.

“Many discussions had been going on between the director, actor and producer over the last one month, and they have decided on this,” says our source.

“Hayagreeva was a huge project with an ensemble cast and it required a lot preparation by the actor, and Dhruva would not have been in a position to dedicate that much time for it. The actor has to be part of the Bharjari promotions, and will be joining the shoot of his new film, Poguru from September 20, which is when they plan to start the shoot. Dhruva is very particular about doing justice to every role and he takes his job seriously, he even spends weeks preparing for a character. Keeping all this in mind, the production team decided to move on with a new subject.”

Nanda Kishore will now helm Hayagreeva with another actor in a few months.

The actor has also decided to speed up his projects so that he can work on more movies and did not wish to keep producer Gangadhar waiting any longer, who has been waiting to do a film with the actor for three years now. “With Poguru, Nanda Kishore will not doing a remake, instead he has picked a script that will suit Dhruva and it will be a commercial film,” our source tells us.

Now the team is on the lookout for a heroine and will soon be finalising the cast.
