After the formal title launch on Monday, the film will go on floors on October 4 in Bengaluru.
It would not be wrong to say that Darling Krishna is hot property in Kannada cinema now. The actor has about eight films in hand, some of which are gearing up for release, while the others are in various stages of production. One such is a romantic drama to be directed by Shivatejass, who had earlier made films like Maley, Dhairyam and Loudspeaker.
“I am a sucker for love stories, both Maley and Loudspeaker were romantic dramas, so, my next with Darling Krishna is a return to that genre. The story is completely in sync with today’s generation, their lifestyles and their perspectives of love. We are officially launching the title on September 27, and will go on floors on October 4. We will begin with a 15-day schedule for the film, which will be shot across locations in Bengaluru. We are looking at heading outside of the city only for the songs. The aim is to wrap up the film before the end of the year,” explains Shivatejass.
The filmmaker adds, “Darling Krishna is the hero in the tale, which will have not one but two heroines. We have Nishvika Naidu and Megha Shetty on board as the female leads. Further details about their characters will be announced at a later stage when we release the first-look poster.” The film will also have Rangayana Raghu, Sadhu Kokila, Tabla Nani, Aruna Balraj and Giri Shivanna, among others, on the cast. Arjun Janya is onboard for the music.
In an earlier interaction with OTTplay about life after Love Mocktail, while talking about his upcoming projects, Krishna had let slip that he would start a film called Dil Pasand on October 4. When we tried confirming this with Shivatejass, though, he denied that this was the title of his film, so, we will have to wait for an official clarification on Monday.
