After the success of the movies like Duniya and Junglee, director Suri is now teaming up with Power-star Puneet Rajkumar for the first time for his upcoming Kannada movie Jackie. But he says he is very much scared about directing Puneet because their combination has generated so much hype.
Suri-Puneet combo has been making news ever since the movie was announced. But Suri is keeping a low profile because the movie still in the scripting stage. It will be launched in January and will take another seven months to hit theatres. "I hope we"re able to live up to the expectations of our fans," says Suri.
Like all other Puneet"s movies, this movie will be also be a family-oriented film. It will have an element of realism, but unlike Suri's previous films, it will not deal with underworld theme. The film will be shot in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.
Presently, the director is hunting for a suitable heroine. And he is insisting on to find a local girl alongside Puneet. However, he has retained his team of faithfuls. V Harikrishna will score music, Satya Hegde will crank camera and Shashidhar Adappa will be art director for the film. His close friend Yograj Bhat has once again penned two songs for the film. Suri hopes that his song will be another big hit like 'Hale Pathre...'
