After six-months long gap after the release of the movie
Suryakaanti, actor Chetan Kumar is making his comeback to
Kannada films. The Aa Dinagalu star has studied the minus
points of the movie and has gone ahead to involve himself in works
of scripting and dialogue writing of his next film. Now, his latest
movie is titled Mareyalaare, which means unforgettable.
The muhurtha of Mareyalaare was held at the Gandhi
Bhavan near Shivananda Circle, Bangalore on last Sunday evening.
The movie is the maiden venture of Sharat and Gouri Khadri, who are
aspiring film-makers with experience in documentary film-making.
Now they have taken a detour from corporate work to make a lasting
impression in mainstream Kannada films.
Besides playing the hero, Chetan has also contributed to the
screenplay and dialogues of the film Mareyalaare. Talking
about the film at Muhurtha, he said "I'm fortunate to work with
producers like Sharat and Gouri Khadri. They've given me complete
freedom in all aspects of the Mareyalaare i.e penning
story, screenplay and dialogues.
The Birugali star added, “Mareyalaare narrates the
conflicts between what mainstream society deems as successful and
our individual pursuits of happiness. I play the role of an
idealistic architect. The film has a backdrop of the catastrophic
floods that took place in northern Karnataka around October
However, Mareyalaare is being directed by debutant
Sharat Khadri and produced by Sharat and his wife Gouri Khadri
under the banner Surabhi Talkies. Chetan, Sindhu Lokanatha, Satish
Chandra, Padmaja Rao are in the cast. It will be shot in 45 days
and is anticipated to release in November.
