Director Srinivas Raj approached Srinagar Kitty with the idea of remaking the movie Shubha Mangala. The Sandalwood actor accepted his offer without a second thought. Talking to TOI, Kitty says, “This is the first time that such a remake is being proposed in Sandalwood and I am glad to be part of it."
Puttanna Kanagal's Shubha Mangala, which featured Shrinath and Aarathi in the leads, was released in 1975. The movie was based on writer Vani's famous Kannada novel of the same name. Now the remake will remain true to the spirit of the original, but will have modifications to suit the taste of present generation.
However, Bhavana is the heroine for Shubha Mangala remake, which is slated to go on the floors in September. Srinagar Kitty and Srinivas Raj have planned to shoot the movie in UK. “It will be a very modern film, which will be shot in the UK," the TOI quotes Kitty as saying.
