Hat-trick hero Shivaraj Kumar is different from other Kannada actors at least in one respect. He does not act in remake movies. That does not mean that he has not starred in remakes. Earlier, he has acted in movies like Preethse and Kodanda Rama.
Recently, Shivaraj Kumar had signed to star in the movie Bhagawan. While signing the movie he was not told that it was a remake. Now he has dropped the movie after knowing that it is remake. Director Prashanth Mambuli had urged him to sign the movie. Even Shivanna had expressed his happiness over acting in the movie Bhagawan.
Now the Malayalam movie Bhagawan is released. So he has refused to act in the movie. Shivanna had told the film makers earlier that he would act in the movie only if they could hold the Malayalam movie and release it along with Kannada movie Bhagawan. He waited for their reply, but now the Malayalam movie has released. He has dropped the movie, he said.
Superstar Mohanlal has played lead role in Malayalam movie Bhagawan. According the reports, Bhagawan will also be done in Hindi and Tamil. Sunny Deol in Hindi and Arjun Sarja in Tamil will play the lead role. Now the big question is who will replace Shivanna in the movie.
