Earlier, Pawan Kumar has written screenplay along with Yogaraj Bhat for the hit movies like Manasaare and Pancharangi. Now, he is set to become independent film director with Lifu Ishtene. The title of his debut movie has been taken from the lines of a popular song 'Lifu Ishtene...' from the movie Pancharangi.
Lifu Ishtene has five heroines and Samyuktha Hornad, Sindhu Lokanath have been chosen for two female lead. Now, the hunt for the remaining three heroins is on. The movie bosses are said to be in talks with actress Radhika Pandit for the same. Another surprising thing about the film is that actress Sudha Belawadi, who is the mother of Samyuktha in real life, will essay the role of her mother in the film too.
Diganth, who has already completed working in two films like Parijaatha and Kaanchana, will be now working in Lifeu Ishtene, which will be produced under the banners Yogaraj Movies and KK films. Mano Murthy will compose music for the film.
