buzz in Gandhinagar is that Duniya fame director Suri is
reportedly set to direct Powerstar Puneet Rajkumar in the movie
Lagori, which had hit the headlines for the conflict
between director Yogaraj Bhat and producer Rockline Venkatesh over
the budget of the movie earlier this year.
If everything had gone according to the calculations, Puneet
Rajkumar starrer Lagori could have gone on set by this
time. But producer Rockline Venkatesh could not manage the big
budget for the movie, which had irked the director Yogaraj Bhat. So
he had to drop the movie earlier this year.
In a new development, director Suri has now come forward to
direct the film Lagori, which will soon go to sets. Puneet
Rajkumar will be the hero of the movie, but the title has been
changed. Lagori has been renamed as Ekka (which
is a card in playing cards).
The date of shooting muhurtha and the details about the casts
have not been confirmed yet. Ekka is reportedly produced
under Puneet's own banner. Until the release of Puneet's Raaj -
The Showman, nothing can be said about the movie. Everything
will be finalised after the release of Raaj.
