Hardly has the buzz surrounding "Lingaa" settled down and KS Ravikuamr is busy preparing for his next venture. The movie, which stars Kannada superstar Kichcha Sudeep, will kick off by March 2015.
As per reports, the makers had planned this movie over a year ago but postponed it because of "Lingaa". The team had to finalise the schedule of "Lingaa" unexpectedly. Ravikumar had apparently mentioned the "Lingaa" story to Rajinikanth in a casual talk and that is when the superstar said he could be a part of the movie if the team schedules "Lingaa" in six months. This situation compelled the makers to postpone Sudeep's movie.
"The movie's script was finalized over a year ago. Since the opportunity to direct Rajinikanth sir came my way, I had to postpone the project with Sudeep. Being a great Rajini fan, he also agreed. This is why we'd thanked him and the producer of that project," said KS Ravikumar in a press conference, according to Silverscreen.in
The upcoming Ravikumar directorial is a thriller and is said to be a fast paced complete entertainer. The makers are yet to finalise the lead heroine and other major cast of the movie. There are reports that the music will be composed by a fresher.
Meanwhile, Sudeep has recently wrapped up the shooting of his Tamil period movie with Vijay, which is his 58th movie. Sudeep portrays the antagonist, a commander of a kingdom, in the movie. Vijay will be spotted in a gladiator look and the movie also has Hansika as a princess and Sridevi will be seen as a queen, playing Hansika's mother.
This upcoming movie directed by Chimbudevan has been made with a huge budget of 90 Crore. Meanwhile, Ravikumar's next with Sudeep will be made simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada.
