Kannada actress Ramya, who recently hit the headlines after she insulted choreographer Harsha on the sets of Just Maath Maathalli, is now teaming up with actor Ganesh Venkatraman. Earlier, it was reported that National Film Award winning actor Prakash Raj (Prakash Rai) was planning to make his directorial debut in Kannada.
Golden girl Ramya is simply ecstatic and is gushing about the director. She says that Prakash has lot of respect for women. "I think Prakash and I get along like a house on fire. We are always talking and working with him is extremely comfortable. I'm really keen to begin work on this project, as I love the subject. And the most amazing thing about him is his respect for women. I'm currently looking to work with more film-makers like him," DNA quotes Ramya saying.
Ganesh Venkatraman, who entered films through the Bollywood movie Angrez, is very happy to debut in Kannada through Prakash Raj's film Naanu, Nanna Kanasu. Ganesh considers Prakash as his mentor, because he has given him a big break with Abhiyum Naanum.
Ganesh Venkatraman is very excited to work with Prakash Raj again in his directorial debut film in Kannada. "I always knew Prakash would make an amazing film-maker. But I never expected him to take up direction so soon," DNA reports Ganesh saying. "Jogi, my character in the original, won me tremendous recognition, I cannot wait to play it all over again," he added.
It is a known fact that Prakash Raj, who is a very popular actor in Tamil and Telugu films, is remaking his Tamil movie Abhiyum Naanum as Naanu, Nanna Kanasu in Kannada. The Tamil movie has already been remade in Telugu as Akasamantha.
Now, movie Naanu, Nanna Kanasu is being produced by Prakash and B Suresh. The movie will have Hamsalekha's music score, Ananth Arasu's camera work and Arun Sagar's art direction. Naanu, Nanna Kanasau will start shooting from November last week or December first week.
