Late veteran actor Dr. Rajkumar had played James Bond in director
Dorai Bhagawan's movie Operation Diamond Rocket around 32
years ago. After this movie, the director had announced another
Bond movie, which was titled Operation Golden Gang, but
the movie did not take off due to some reason. Now Dr. Raj's son
Hat-trick hero Shivaraj Kumar is play Bond in the movie.
The film Operation Golden Gang is produced by Basava
Reddy. KM Veeresh, who is the executive producer of the film,
announced the movie on the 49th birthday of Shivaraj Kumar. Talking
about the movie, he said that Dorai Bhagawan himself had given them
the story and the title. Currently, they are planning to go through
the script and give it a contemporary touch. They are also in
search of a suitable director for it.
In order to give a stylised look to the movie Operation
Golden Gang, they are considering to bring in some Hollywood
techniques into the film. Firstly, it will be shot in Bangkok,
Pattaya and Hong Kong. Secondly, it will have international stunt
directors to bring the Hollywood standards in action scenes. Nikki
Das, who entered Kannada with Mandahasa, will play the bikini Bond
girl in the film.
However, the movie bosses have already got green signal from the
Rajkumar family. But Shivanna has now busy with a handful of
projects. He has already completed the shooting of the movies
Mylari and Cheluveye Ninna Nodalu and waiting for
the release of the film. His another much-hyped movie
Jogayya, which is his 100th movie, was launched its
shooting on his birthday on July 12. He is expected to start
shooting for Operation Golden Gang early next year after
completing the movie Jogayya.
