Prem has earlier introduced Bollywood actresses like Mallika
Sherawat and Priyanka alias Nisha Kothari to Kannada audiences
through his hit movies like Preethi Eke Bhoomi Melidhe and
Raaj - The Showman. Now, he is trying to rope in another
Bollywood actress for his upcoming movie Jogayya. She is none other
than Priyanka Chopra.
The movie Jogayya is a sequel of Shivaraj Kumar's
Jogi, which had set new records in Kannada film industry.
Now Shivanna will play the lead again in this film, which is
considered as his 100th movie. So Prem is hoping to make it even
bigger than Jogi. Script work has been going on for the
past six months, still four months left for the launch of the
movie, which will be shot abroad.
Presently, director Prem is in talks with Priyanka Chopra's
secretary to get adjusted her dates for the movie Jogayya.
According to him, the actress will be used for a song sequence in
the movie. "We selected Priyanka Chopra because she suits very well
for the song sequence," says the director.
Actress Jennifer Kotwal had played the lead lady in
Jogi, but now, the movie bosses are in search of new face
for the movie Jogayya. They are planning to rope in
seasoned actress like Vidya Balan. However, director Prem is
finding new ideas for Shivanna's 100th movie.
