Yes, you read it right. BC Patil is all set to make a grand comeback to Kannada Film Industry, not as an actor but as a producer. He will be producing a multi-starrer movie.
This film will be directed by Pannaga Bharana, son of eminent film-maker TS Nagabharana. Pannaga, who has been part of many movies as an actor has also won an award for Best Supporting Actor for Mrugashira movie.
Pannaga was working as associate director for his father's movies including Nagabharana's recent flick Allama, which is ready for release. He had announced a few years back that he will be making his directorial debut with KR Market, starring Santhosh and produced by CR Manohar but the project was shelved.
Now he is back with film titled as Happy New Year, which will have five heroes and heroines. Dhananjaya and Sruthi Hariharan have been signed to play one pair amongst five pairs which come in the film. Scout for other four heroes and heroines is going on.
Film is titled Happy New Year because it deals with the five stories which happens on New Year's Eve. So the five pairs are for the five different stories which will connect on the New Year's Eve. Pannaga is quite excited to deal with the multiple stories in his debut film.
Pannaga confirmed the news on his Facebook profile, by sharing an article about his debut and posted "BC Patil sir thank you for believing in me". Team is planning to complete the pre-production work soon, and start shooting by mid-September.
