Rockline Venkatesh has not produced a movie post his blockbuster "Super" starring Upendra and Nayantara in Kannada. But he made big movies in other languages like "Power" (Telugu), "Lingaa" (Tamil) and "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" (Hindi). After tasting success in other industries, he is returning to Sandalwood again with this flick.

Meanwhile, Golden Star Ganesh has reportedly given his consent to act in the untitled project. He will take up the movie once he wraps up his upcoming Kannada flicks like "Paataaki"," Zoom", "Style King" and "Mungaru Male 2".

Nanda Kishore, who has directed successful movies earlier like "Victory" and "Ranna", is said to be helming the project. More details on the film are yet to be revealed.

"Bhale Bhale Magadivoy" was written and directed by Maruthi Dasari. Nani and Lavanya Tripathi had played the lead roles in the psychological-romantic comedy entertainer and this film is one of the hits in Tollywood.
