Yes, you read it right! According to a leading Tamil magazine, director Gautham Vasudev Menon has confirmed that Powerstar Puneeth Rajkumar has been signed for his next movie which will be a multi-starrer.
Several times in the past, Puneeth has expressed his desire to work with directors like Gautham Menon and looks like his dream of working with Gautham is materializing this year. A few years ago, a project with Puneeth and Gautham Menon was announced by Chi Gurudatt, but the project was shelved for reasons better known to the team.
Gautham Menon has also said in the interview that Anushka and Tamannah are signed to play the leading ladies in this multi-starrer. Along with Puneeth, Malayalam actor Prithviraj, Telugu Star Sai Dharam Tej are already on board to play the lead roles. As per the sources, a Tamil star will be signed very soon, to join the fantastic star cast.
With this ensemble cast of stars, a fantastic movie can be expected for sure. But there is no update as to whether the movie will be made in Kannada, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam simultaneously or will be shot in one language and dubbed into other languages. We have to wait for more details to be revealed.
Meanwhile, Puneeth has wrapped up the shoot for Dodmane Huduga recently, in Bangalore, where he shot for the introduction song of the movie sung by himself. Lakhs of Powerstar fans participated in the song shoot. After Dodmane Huduga, he will start shooting for Santhosh Anandram's Raajkumara, for which he has already shot the first schedule in Australia.
