Finally, the news is out! Anup Bhandari's next is titled as Rajaratha, which will be a romantic comedy entertainer starring Nirup Bhandari and Avanthika Shetty.
The title and project details were revealed in a dance reality
show in the presence of Crazy Star V Ravichandran, Juhi Chawla,
Mayuri and Priyamani. Also, the title logo design was launched in
the same show. Anup, Nirup and Avantika from the Rajaratha team,
were a part of the show.
Like his first film Rangitaranga, Anup is doing multiple roles
in Rajaratha, as well. He has written the story, screenplay,
lyrics, and composed the music along with directing the film. Apart
from creative jobs, Anup Bhandari is co-producing the movie under
his newly formed banner Anup Bhandari Cinemas.
The movie is produced by Ajay Reddy, Anju Vallabh, Vishu
Dakkapagiri and Sathish Sastry under Jolly Hits Productions. Jolly
Hits had distributed Rangitaranga in USA, and movie was a big hit
in USA. Rangitaranga is the biggest Kannada hit in USA, so
Jolly Hits' Kannada connection doesn't end there. They have also
released Kannada movies like First Rank Raju, Ricky in the recent
past and Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu, last Friday in USA.
Anup has roped in Sai Kumar's brother Ravishankar for an
important role and we are sure Anup would have designed another
fantastic character for Ravishankar like his brother Sai Kumar's
character in Rangitaranga.
Ajaneesh Loknath will take care of the background score. Sudhakar Saaja will be the executive producer. Gokul Abhishek will arrange the music. More details about the cast and crew are awaited.
