While Kiran Bedi, one of the costliest action films made in Kannada is almost complete, producer Ramu has announced three more films to be shot and released this year. Kiran Bedi is based on the life and work of IPS officer Kiran Bedi and Malashri plays the title character. Om Prakash Rao, Sreenivasa Murthy and Rangayana Raghu are cast in other important roles. The film took a little more than 150 days to complete shooting.
Ramu is all set to make three more big budget films with Upendra, Darshan and Vijay. Rajini, launched recently, will feature Upendra in the lead role. Stunt master-turned-director Thriller Manju will direct the film. Rajini, remake of the Telugu hit Krishna will start rolling from March 16. Rangayana Raghu has an important role to play in the film; the heroine is not announced.
Ramu has announced two more films, Bheema and Kolkota, with Darshan and Vijay as heroes respectively. Bheema will be directed by Om Praksh Rao while P.N. Sathya has been chosen to direct Kolkota.
