Now, Basanth Kumar is all set to do another movie called

Nugudoni"s short story 'Savaari". The story is set in the north
Karnataka region. So Basanth Kumar"s team is going to north
Karnataka to shoot the movie. Before leaving, the producer shared
his feelings about the success of the movie Gulabi Talkies
with us at Oneindia.
Basanth Kumar said, "I had expected the Best Film Award for the
movie Gulabi Talkies, but the selection committee of
National Film Award didn"t give much preference to Kannada films
this year. Anyway, I"m very happy with the Best Actress award for
the heroine Umashree.
He said, “Working with director Girish Kasaravalli was a
wonderful experience. He is one of the decent directors in Kannada
film industry. We are really proud to have him in our industry. I
had once requested Girish to do a movie based on the culture and
language of north Karnataka."
“Now, I"m getting an opportunity to fulfill my dream through the
short story of Amaresh Nugudoni. My forthcoming movie is named as
Kanasemba Kudureyanneri. The main intention of the movie
is to promote the culture and language of north Karnataka. That"s
why we are using most of the artistes from that part. I"ve lots of
expectation from the movie," he added
