After Hatrick Hero Shivanna and Roaring Star Sri Murali confirming their presence in Mufti, now Shanvi Srivastava, who recently won Best Debut actress award for Masterpiece, has been roped in to the play heroine in this multi-starrer.
The team had a simple muhurtha last month, in which only the hero and director Narthan had participated as producers were abroad shooting for their next flick. As per the sources, shoot of the movie will start by August.
Narthan, who has worked as assistant director for a couple of big films and also penned lyrics for movies such as Masterpiece and Rathavara, is foraying into direction with this project. He has taken care of story and screenplay for the movie as well.
Jayanna and Bhogendra under their banner Jayanna Combines, are bankrolling this project. This will be their first project with Sri Murali and second with Shivanna. They already have multiple projects like Shivanna's Bangara - S/O Bangarada Manushya and Manoranjan Ravichandran's Saheba in various stages of production.
Sri Murali has not agreed to be a part of any other movie apart from this movie. He is involved in every stage of production as he doesn't want to make any mistake in his second innings.
Shanvi is shooting for Jayanna Combines' other movie, Saheba. Recently, the songs were shot in Italy and movie is in the final stage of production. Shanvi will join the sets of Mufti, once she has completed her work for Saheba.
