Golden star Ganesh's upcoming Kannada movie Kool… Sakkath Hot Maga has completed its shooting. According to producer Shilpa Ganesh, the canning of the songs has been done in the beautiful locations of Egypt, Dubai, Jordan and Middle East and other sequences have been shot in Bangalore's Abbaiah Naidu Studio, Mysore and Ooty. The total time taken for shooting is 72 days.
Kool…Sakkath Hot Maga happens to be the debut directorial venture of Ganesh. Earlier, Mussanje Mathu fame Mahesh was roped in to direct the movie, but the differences between him and Shilpa Ganesh led him to walk out of the project in the middle. Besides playing the hero, Ganesh had to take the responsibility of directing the film. However, Ganesh says that he did not find direction work difficult because he had worked as assistant director and director during his small screen career in TV channel Udaya.
Ganesh says that his work of directing became easier because of cinematographer Ratnavelu, who has earlier worked for Superstar Rajinikanth's films. V Harikrishna has composed music for the film songs, which have been choreographed by Shanker, Ramu and Vishnudev. Ramesh Desai is the art director and Gajani fame Anthony has taken the responsibility of editing the film. Sana Khan is playing the heroine, while Sadhu Kokila, Deepa Shetty, Sharan, Sangeetha Shetty and Dattanna are in other star cast.
Kool… Sakkath Hot Maga is being produced under Ganesh's home banner Golden Movies, which has earlier produced the successful movie Maleyali Jotheyali. Now, Shilpa Ganesh is pinning lots of hopes on this film, which is currently in the dubbing process and will be ready by the end of April. She is planning to release it after the World Cup 2011.
