Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar's next film has been titled as Anjaniputra. The film is directed by choreographer turned director A Harsha, who has directed films like Bhajarangi and Vajrakaya.
Director Harsha has seen to it that film title is related to Lord Hanuman. This sentiment is working well for Harsha. Rashmika of Kirik Party fame plays the female lead.
The film is an official remake of Tamil hit film Poojai, which had Vishal and Shruthi Hassan playing the lead roles. Apparently, Harsha has just retained the storyline and weaved new screenplay around the storyline.
Well-known distributor/producer MN Kumar is bankrolling the film under MNK Movies. Yet another producer Jayashree Devi, is also involved in the production of the film. This is the first film for duo with Power Star Puneeth.
Harsha has assembled young technicians for the film. Puneeth, who has mostly worked with the top technicians throughout his career, will be working with relatively new and young technicians in this film.
Swamy Gowda, who has worked for films like Vajrakaya, Uppi Matte Hutti Baa has been signed on as the director of photography. Ravi Basrur, who made a mark with fantastic score of Ugramm, is composing music for the film.
The film has been launched in a temple in Bangalore in the presence of film industry well-wishers and media. The team has plans of shooting from February last week. Producers intend to release the film in the latter half of the 2017.
