Jogi sequel, Jogayya - The Legend of the Underworld is reportedly being launched on Shivaraj Kumar's birthday on July 12 at the Kanteerava Open Stadium. But the selection of heroine is yet to be done by the filmmakers. That's why director Prem has postponed all the projects, which he wanted to do before Jogayya, and is in talks with a few Bollywood actresses for the female lead in the film.
It is said that the director is said to be negotiating with popular Bollywood actresses Rani Mukherjee, Preity Zinta, Vidya Balan and Shreya Saran. Source claim that besides heroine's selection, there are a few other pre-production works to be done for which time is very short. So Prem is said to zero in on one of the four actresses, who is comfortable with the dates.
However, director Prem had signed to star in films like Dove and in S Narayan"s untitled film. Earlier, it was even reported that he would complete the shooting of these two movies before he could launch Shivanna's 100th film. Postponing all these projects for Jogayya, he has created more curiosity among the audience about the film. He says, “I want to give Kannada industry the best of entertainment and action."
