Soorappa Babu, who is also the chief of the title committee,
said that he had registered Varadha a few months ago -
much before Shankare Gowda registered Varadhanayaka.

announced the movie on Shivaraj Kumar's birthday and plans to start
the project soon.
However, Shankare Gowda claims that Varadhanayaka has

yet-to-be started. He further adds that Sudeep's character name in

requested the KFCC to allot the title for him.
