Of late, senior actor Dr. Rajashekhar is teaming up with young directors. In 2017, he collaborated with Praveen Sattaru for PSV Garuda Vega. Last year, he came up with Prashanth Varma's directorial Kalki. Now, we hear that he is teaming up with Palasa 1978 fame Karuna Kumar. Apparently, this film will go on floors once the government permits the film shoots.
Palasa 1978 featured Rakshit and Nakshatra in the lead roles. Raghu Kunche composed the music and also played a key role in it. Karuna Kumar received wide critical acclaim for dealing with caste issues in Palasa. The film didn't have a great theatrical run due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it made a lot of noise when it landed on a streaming site. From the past few days, it is being heard that Karuna Kumar is making a film under the production of Allu Aravind. It seems that there is no truth in that news. He will be working with Rajashekhar for his next film. Jeevitha Rajashekhar will bankroll this project.
According to the sources, Jeevitha is planning to take this film on floors either in July or August. More details about the rest of the cast and crew will get announced soon. The sources said that Jeevitha is also willing to opt for an OTT release if the situation will not get normalized by the time this film completes its shoot. Meanwhile, Rajashekhar is also working on another film under the production of Madhura Sreedhar Reddy.
