Produced by Rockline Venkatesh, Junglee featuring Vijay and Andrita Ray, has returned its investment in just three days. Sources suggest that this action thriller is the first hit of 2009. Rockline Venkatesh's last film, Bombaat featuring Ganesh, was a moderate hit.
Meanwhile, Rockline Venkatesh announced two more films to be produced by him. Devaru and Manasaare were launched on Friday, just ahead of the release of Junglee. Interestingly, Devaru will also feature Vijay, Sadhu Kokila will direct the film. Director Yograj Bhatt of Mungaru Male fame will be directing Manasare which will feature Diganth in the lead role. Mansare has already started shooting and Rockline Venkatesh is happy to team up with Yograj Bhatt since their first project Lagori was dropped.
