Dwarakish has reportedly said that he wants to make Apthamitra 3 and wishes to cast Sudeep in the lead role of a psychiatrist, which was played by Dr Vishnuvardhan in Apthamitra and Aaptharakshaka. The producer has got a verbal consent from Kiccha and the script works are in the process.
The project might be delayed, as Sudeep is completely busy with multiple films. P Vasu, who directed the first two instalments, is likely to helm the third instalment. Other details are yet to be revealed.
However, it has to be noted that Dwarakish had produced Apthamitra, which also featured late Soundarya, but second instalment Aaptharakshaka, which became the last film of Vishu, was produced by Krishna Prajwal, as Dwarakish and Vishnuvardhan were not in good terms.
