Puneeth Rajkumar, who completed shooting for Raajakumara didn’t waste any time on starting his next project. He has joined the sets of his upcoming film with A Harsha on Monday.
The film is inspired by Tamil flick Poojai starring Vishal and Sruthi Haasan. The director, who is a big devotee of Lord Hanuman has again managed to get the Lord’s reference in his title in the Kannada version - Anjani Putra.
The film will feature Rashmika Mandanna as the female lead. The actress, who was on her way to the sets, told City Express, that she is both excited and nervous about the project.
“My career started with a big bang with Kirik Party seeing a stupendous success and I am heading to my second project’s set now. I have been taking deep breaths since morning. I am nervous to even meet him and also curious to know how he would react when he sees me on the sets,” says Rashmika.
She adds, “Beyond being professional at work, I believe in knowing the person on the sets. This helps me to interact better and share a comfort level with my co-star. I cannot believe this is happening and digest the fact that I am shooting with a huge star. It will take me a while to settle down. As of now, it still seems unbelievable.”
Harsha has brought in music director Ravi Basrur on board with Swamy as its cinematographer.
