Kannada actor-filmmaker Raj B Shetty is ready to get rolling with his fourth production venture. A little while ago, Raj took to social media with a casting call for his upcoming Production No. 4, under his Lighter Buddha Films. Raj, who has made films like Ondu Motteya Kathe, Garuda Gamana Vrishabha Vahana and Toby, and directed Swati Mutthina Male Haniye for Ramya’s Applebox Studios, has not said if he is directing this venture.

The casting criteria

His team, the post read, is looking for local artistes in the age group of 18-70 years in Dakshina Kannada district areas like Bantwala, Punjalakatte, Belthangady and Ujjire. The audition date is June 23 and will be held at the Kala Sabhangana in Belthangady.

Watch Raj B Shetty's Garuda Gamana Vrishabha Vahana on Zee5 or Toby on SonyLIV with OTTplay Premium's Powerplay pack. Enjoy 35+ OTTs like ZEE5, LionsgatePlay, Ullu, SunNXT, SonyLIV, Fancode and 250+ Live TV channels at just ₹99. 

During the promotions of Swati Mutthina Male Haniye, Raj had said that his immediate focus would be his production house, although the next two projects would only see him serve as writer, with other members of his team being introduced as directors and actors. Raj returning to direction would be only thereafter, he had said.

The actor-filmmaker is also in the process of scripting a web series, which has been greenlit by a popular streamer, so that is also likely to go on floors shortly. In Kannada, Raj was last seen in Swathi Mutthina Male Haniye, which was actress Ramya’s first production venture and was initially announced to be her comeback vehicle. She chose not to do it, eventually, and the role went to Siri Ravikumar, instead.

Raj will next be seen in Arjun Janya’s directorial debut 45, which also stars Upendra and Shivarajkumar. The actor has also been roped in as the antagonist of director Jadesha K Hampi’s untitled next with Duniya Vijay in the lead. Raj’s Malayalam cinema debut as the villain in superstar Mammootty’s latest, Turbo, was also widely appreciated.
