Director Sai Prakash is readying subject for a movie that will bring Shivarajkumar and Radhika Kumaraswamy as brother and sister once more; Film will be made under latter’s home banner Shamika Enterprises

Shivarajkumar and Radhika Kumaraswamy were once the most loved brother-sister combo in Sandalwood, and director Sai Prakash had portrayed them at the best in movies such as Thavarige Baa Thangi and Anna Thangi.

Though there have been many attempts to bring the trio together again, none have been successful so far.  Now the good news is that, after 13 years, the three may work together again. What makes this venture more interesting is that this yet-to-be-titled project will be made under Radhika’s banner,  Samiksha Production.

Sources say, “Radhika, who is currently acting in Ravichandran directorial Rajendra Ponnappa and Kontract with Arjun Sarja, has been in talks to get this movie made under her banner and she has apparently got Sai Prakash on board… The director even the subject line in place, and it will be about the affection between a brother and a sister and it will have dance, and something that will be done considering today’s trend.  The one-liner has been given the go ahead and the director is working on fleshing on the story”.

But Radhika wants  to give an official confirmation about it once she gets an okay from Shivarajkumar himself. Our source says, “The movie will definitely take off, Radhika is only waiting for an answer from Shivarajkumar, who is in Bangkok shooting for The Villain. She wants to discuss the subject with the actor, and work out the dates… she will discuss the next production only after everything is finalised.” Moviegoers can hope to see an inspirational story about a brother and sister on silver screen again.
