First Rank Raju fame Gurunandan, has at least signed half a dozen projects after tasting the success last year. He is now shooting for Raghuram DP's Missing Boy.
Missing Boy is based on a true story narrated by Inspector Lava Kumar to Raghuram. He was so impressed with the incident that he decided to make a movie out of it, and started working on the script.
Once he had the script ready, he approached his gym buddy Gurunandan, who liked the story in the first go, and gave his nod to be a part of this project. The shoot is going on at brisk pace now in and around Bangalore.
Kolla Praveen, who was the co-producer for Maanikya and Power, is producing the movie under Kolla Entertainments. This is his second movie as a full-fledged producer after Goli Soda, which is ready for release.
The latest news from the team is that they have roped in Archana Jayakrishnan as the heroine. She has done a couple of Malayalam movies and a few ads. She was born and brought up in Canada, but her family relocated to Bangalore, six years ago.
Raghuram, whose last release Fair and Lovely with Lovely Star Prem and Swetha Srivatsav, did not work as he had expected. Also, his other film Ninagagi which had Vijay Raghavendra and Radhika, was stalled because of financial issues. So he is leaving no stone unturned to make this project a commercial success.
Tamil actress Kiran Rathod, Ravishankar Gowda, Jai Jagadish, Vijayalakshmi Singh and Rangayana Raghu are playing important roles. V Harikrishna is composing the music. Jagadish Wali is the director of photography.
