After Maadesha, which was touted as a different gangster film, Shivraj Kumar comes up with another film which is being termed as a different love story, Cheluve Ninne Nodalu, produced by N.M. Suresh. The film"s high point is that this is Hindi actress Sonal Chouhan's Kannada debut. The young actress had made a sensational debut in Hindi with Imraan Hashmi"s Jannat. Director Raghuram is also a debutant; the film crew will travel all around the world shooting the new Seven Wonders of the World.
Shivraj Kumar plays the role of a guide and the team will go to Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Italy, Jordan and Agra for the shooting. Unlike other films which shoot abroad only for songs, this film will have major portions shot in these countries.
N.M. Suresh said that Sonal Chouhan is best suited for the role among all the Bollywood actresses they considered. Choosing a Hindi actress was not on the cards at first but the Kannada heroines that they approached were busy and could not allot the dates. Suresh also explained that this will be the most expensive film ever made in Sandalwood. Sonal Chouhan is almost fixed for the role but talks regarding her remuneration are still in progress.
