It’s not uncommon for Bollywood actors to work in south Indian films, whether it is Sonu Sood, Aftab Shivdasani, Kabir Duhan Singh, Thakur Anup Singh, Arbaaz Khan, etc. Joining this list is Bigg Boss 8 winner Gautam Gulati, who will soon be seen in a Kannada film.

Directed by Hari Santhosh, the as-yet-untitled thriller, written by Yoganand Muddanna, will see Gautam in the role of an investigating officer. The actor, who was last seen onscreen in Salman Khan’s Radhe, has ben shooting for the film in the UK and is expected to return soon for the India portions.

Hari Santhosh, meanwhile, had gone to the UK to shoot his Bollywood debut Puppy Love with Tanuj Virwani, Tridha Choudhary and Sapna Pabbi in the lead. An intense love story, Puppy Love was to be made as a bilingual, with actor Rohitt stepping in to take up Tanuj’s role in the Kannada version called I-LU. The makers, though, decided against this and instead made a totally different film. There is no word on whether I-LU will get made after all.

The film that has been done now also stars Rohitt and Kushee Ravi in the lead. Kushee, who is awaiting the release of Spooky College, is expected to be back by the end of October and join the team for an as-yet untitled film. There’s also The Case of Kondona, in which she is paired with Vijay Raghavendra.

As for Rohitt, he’s got his directorial debut Rowdy Fello lined up for release. The film also stars Vidya Pradeep, Urvashi and Saikumar in pivotal roles. Rohitt is also prepping for his next directorial, a sci-fi film called GOAT (Greatest Of Them All) set in London. The actor, we hear, will return to India, finish his commitment for Hari’s film and then head back to the UK for his film.
