Rocking Star Yash's most expected movie KGF gets a launch date. The team will have pooja in a temple in Bangalore tomorrow(June 9) which will kick-start the proceedings of the movie. However, the team will start shooting only at the end of the month.
The period drama is directed by Prashant Neel, who delivered the classic Ugramm with Roaring Star Sri Murali. Prashant has been working on this project from the last couple of years as this project requires minute details to be addressed and a lot of pre-production work.
The movie is bankrolled by Vijay Kirangdhoor under his banner Hombale Films. Karthik Gowda and K V Ramarao will be the executive producers. Hombale Films has produced films like Ninnindale and Masterpiece in the past. Their latest project with Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar and Santhosh Anandram is in the production stage.
The heroine for the movie is not yet finalized, they are looking for girl who fits the bill exactly. Last year, team had held auditions for important characters and a few artists were selected. They are undergoing training under Prashant Neel. Apart from the newbies, movie will have few well-known artists playing important roles.
The technical team will be almost the same of Ugramm with Bhuvan Gowda working as director of photography and Ravi Barsur composing the songs and background score.
Currently, Yash is busy with Mahesh Rao's Santu - Straight Forward, where he is playing lead role along with Radhika Pandit. First schedule of the movie was shot in Bangalore and Hyderabad.
The second schedule will start from tomorrow and hence Rocking Star Yash may not be a part of muhurtha pooja of KGF, tomorrow. Official announcement about this is awaited.
