the mining activities in Bellary district of Karnataka. Shivaraj
Kumar has earlier done films on the underworld, like his movie Om
(1995), which was directed by Upendra. Prem"s connection to the
underworld subject is from his film Kariya in 2002.
Finally, the duo came together in Jogi.
This time, in Jogayya, which is produced jointly by
Prem and his wife, actress Rakshita, will be looking at the
politics of the past that was responsible in giving scope for the
underworld. A number of real-life politicians will star in the
movie as the film has quite a few politician characters. A lot of
underworld dons were brought on screen by director Prem in
Kariya, which starred Darshan.

Rajakumar"s birth anniversary on April 24, is now set to roll on
July 12, the birthday of superstar Shivaraj Kumar. The film may
