TR Subba Rao's trilogy 'Kambaniya Kuyilu', 'Rakta Ratri' and
'Tirugubana', which portrays the life of Dalavai Muddanna, will be
adapted on-screen by ace directors Upendra and Prem. The movie
based on Chitradurga's history will see the Real Star in the role
of a warrior.
Upendra himself has confirmed the news that he is joining hands
with Prem for Dalavai Muddanna. He claims that the talks
are in initial stages and nothing has been finalized yet. He is
planning to announce the details of the project on his birthday,
There have been many attempts by Kannada filmmakers to bring the
historical character of Dalavai Muddanna on-screen but in
vein. Dr. Rajkumar was the first person to receive the offer to act
in the film but the late actor refused to star citing the negative
role could not go well with his fans.
A few years ago, noted filmmaker TS Nagabharana planned the
movie with Prakash Raj in the lead role but later it was dropped
for the reasons best known to them. In fact, superstar Rajinikanth
had also expressed his wish to act in the film earlier.
