The film, directed by R Shiva Tejas, will go on floors on October 4.
So, here we have it. Darling Krishna’s next, in which he is paired with Nishvika Naidu and Megha Shetty is called Dil Pasand, after all. We did tell you this earlier! Krishna, in an earlier interaction with OTTplay had let slip the title of his next that was going on floors on October 4, which, as it turns out, is his film with R Shiva Tejas, known for films like Maley, Dhairyam and Loudspeaker. The title was launched by IPS officer Ravi D Chanannannavar on Monday evening.
Director Shiva Tejas had told us that Dil Pasand is his return to the romantic drama genre, which he says is his personal favourite. The team will have a 15-day schedule in Bengaluru starting October 4 and are looking at wrapping up the film by the end of the year. This, of course, will depend on Krishna’s availability, given that he is one of the busiest actors in Kannada cinema right now. Since the success of his debut directorial Love Mocktail last year, Krishna has been on a signing spree, with some of his projects ready for release and others in various stages of production. In fact, his film firstname.lastname@example.org is due for release in October. The actor has also been giving finishing touches to Love Mocktail 2, the sequel to Love Mocktail.
Meanwhile, more details about the story and characterisations in Dil Pasand are expected once the team starts shooting and release the first-look of the film. It will also star Rangayana Raghu, Sadhu Kokila, Tabla Nani, Aruna Balraj and Giri Shivanna, among others, on the cast, while Arjun Janya is onboard for the music. Shiva Tejas will shoot the talkie portions of the film in Bengaluru, with only the songs to be canned in more picturesque locations, either in India or abroad, which is yet to be decided.
