Madhakari, in which Sudeep is acting and directing, is being produced by Dinesh Gandhi. It has attracted quite a bit of controversy for its title. Right now, the shooting is progressing fast and is into the second schedule. Rohini and Pavitra are the heroines; the good news is that both are Kannadigas.
A prominent stage actor, Manoj (height 6'5"), is the towering villain who will challenge Sudeep to a battle of wits in the movie. Veteran actor Gopinath Bhathas has been roped in for a very vital supporting role in Madhakari.
As everyone knows, Madhakari is the remake of the Telugu hit film Vikramarkudu. M.M. Keervani is composing the music. Cinematography is by Srivenkat. This will be stunt choreographer Thriller Manju's 350th film, a milestone by any standards.
Story is by Vijendraprasad and the dialogues are by Raviraj. Veteran actor Devaraj has an important role in this movie along with Doddanna, Tennis Krishna and Dinesh Gandhi who have enacted their parts brilliantly.
