Actor-director-musician Sadhu Kokila gears up for the release of his next directorial film 'Bhale Jodi'. The movie is the official remake of Telugu hit movie Ala Modalaindi which starred Nani & Nithya Menen in the lead roles.
The remake has been titled as 'Bhale Jodi' in Kannada and it stars Sumanth Shailendra & Shanvi Srivastava in the lead roles. Touted to be a comedy riot, Bhale Jodi also has Haripriya & Harshika Poonacha in extended cameo roles.
The movie was thought to be as the new version of Dr Rajkumar's Bhale Jodi which was released in 1970. The movie starred 'Varanata' Dr Rajkumar in dual role opposite Bharathi Vishnuvardhan.
Now, we will have to wait to see what's in the story of the new Bhale Jodi starring Sumanth Shailendra-Shanvi Srivastava.
In an recent interview with a leading daily, the hero Sumanth Shailendra has opened up about his working experience with Sadhu Kokila, he said that, "I have worked with a few people who are only directors, but Sadhu is a director and an extremely talented actor. So he knows the potential of an actor and how much can be extracted from him. He analyses each strength and works around it. That's how he has moulded me".
He further added,"Bhale Jodi is a very youthful film, meant for youngsters, who come to theatres for a good time and not be bogged down by preachy social issues. In fact, if you look at the dynamics of movie audiences, a large chunk of them are youngsters. You rarely see older or, for that matter, middle-aged people heading out for a movie."
For the first time Sumanth Shailendra will be seen romancing three leads Shanvi Srivastava, Haripriya & Harshika Poonacha! Let's wait to see the laughter riot, releasing tomorrow, Feb 19.
