The second schedule of the film will have Priyanka Kumar joining Abishek.
The fact that director Duniya Suri would be helming Junior Rebel Star Abishek’s Ambareesh’s second film was welcomed with much fanfare back in 2020. Suri, after all, has an impeccable track record, with films like Duniya, Doddmane Huduga, Kendasampige and Popcorn Monkey Tiger, among others. Naturally, expectations have sky-rocketed about how the filmmaker will present Abishek in the film, Bad Manners.
Suri is a man of few words and is not known to speak much about his films, as he prefers for his work to the do the talking. Understandably, there is precious little out in the public domain about Bad Manners, barring, of course, the fact that Abishek is paired with Rachita Ram and newbie Priyanka Kumar in the film and that they managed to complete one schedule before the second wave of the pandemic. The first-look images that have been released, though, have Abishek in a gun-toting rugged avatar, which shouldn’t be surprising, given Suri’s affinity for films with action and violence galore.
The team, we hear, is now set to resume shooting, with a schedule beginning on October 5. Sources from the set suggest that Abishek will be joined by model-turned-actor Priyanka Kumar in this schedule.
Produced by Sudhir KM, Bad Manners has dialogues by Maasti who is a frequent collaborator of the director. Charan Raj will compose the music, while Shekar S is in charge of cinematography. Apart from Bad Manners, Suri has also announced a sequel to Kendasampige, called Kagebangara, which will be a comedy entertainer with Prashant Siddi and Poornachandra in lead roles. Earlier reports had suggested that Suri was looking at finishing the film in 2020, but there has been no update since. Charan Raj is on board for the music of this project as well.
