Hariprasad Jayanna, a long-time associate of filmmaker Yogaraj Bhat, has been busy giving finishing touches to his directorial debut Padavi Poorva, which will introduce two new talents to Kannada cinema – Pruthvi Shamanur and Anjali Anish. But the filmmaker, it seems, is already gearing up for his next projecct. On the occasion of his leading man’s birthday, Hariprasad has announced that he will be reuniting with the young actor with a film that will yet again be produced by Yogaraj and Ravi Shamanur, who have also backed Padavi Poorva.
The as-yet-untitled project is likely to go on floors in October this year. Hariprasad is looking at retaining the young and new technical crew of Padavi Poorva for his next, while the cast will comprise newcomers, who will be chosen through auditions. Beside Padavi Poorva, young Pruthvi will also be seen in Yogaraj’s film Garadi, in which he plays the younger version of Challenging Star Darshan, who will be seen in a pivotal role in the Yashas Surya starrer.
Meanwhile, Padavi Poorva, a college caper that is set in the 90s, is currently in post-production stage. According to the filmmaker, Padavi Poorva will showcase romance from before the social media era. The film is likely to be released before Hariprasad and Pruthvi head to the set of their next, but it will probably be only after Yogaraj Bhat brings his film, Gaalipata 2, to theatres. Padavi Poorva also stars Yasha Shivakumar, while Divya Uruduga, Aditi Prabhudeva, Varsha Acharya, Prabhu Mundkur, Sonal Monteiro, Raghu Gowda, Nayana, among others, and has music by Arjun Janya.
Incidentally, Hariprasad was supposed to make his directorial debut earlier with a film called Premadalli, with Vihaan Gowda, Akshara Gowda and Anusha Ranganath in the lead. The film, though, got stalled midway, when the banner that was backing it, ran into financial trouble.
