Rajkumar"s latest movie will be based on the street game 'lagori'.
In recent times, movies like Lagaan, Chak De India in Hindi and
Chennai 600028 in Tamil, which focused on team sports raked in the
moolah, did exceptionally well at the box office.
Director Yogaraj Bhat, of Mungaru Male and Galipata fame, was
drawn by this subject and he"s tentatively titled his flick as
Lagori. He has roped in Puneet Rajakumar as the hero. Rockline
Venkatesh will produce the film.
Yogaraj Bhat extensively shot his previous two movies in very
scenic and picturesque locations. This time around, he"s shooting
most of the movie in and around Bangalore and a very small portion
of the shoot is planned in New Zealand and the US.
Bhat hasn"t yet finalized the heroine, though he has thought of
approaching either Trisha or Priyamani.
