Powerstar Puneeth Kumar to play college student role in his upcoming flick Yuvaratna. This film will be helmed by Santhosh Anandram. The industry hit combination Puneeth-Santhosh-HombaleFilms teaming up for the second time after Raajakumara.
Puneeth will have a new makeover in this film. He will undergo an intense transformation as he should look much younger for the sake of character. It is said that he will be leaner and will have the most stylish appearance. The First Look of the film to release in February 2019.
In this film, Puneeth's character will be on par with that of Appu. His attitude and body language will give the same kick and this will be an ultimate feast for Powerstar fans.
Answering the question regarding the comparisons with Rajakumar, the director says the reason we opted for this sort of movie to be different from Rajakumara. The former was a family entertainer, but Yuvaratna will be more about action and entertainment with Powerstar Puneeth's punch. In this film Puneeth will be like youth icon, hence we came up with the title Yuvaratna.
Entire shooting of Yuvaratna including songs will take place in Karnataka. Though it is not a conscious decision, as per the script there is no much necessity to shoot in foreign places. This provides us with the biggest opportunity to explore more beautiful and apt places in Karnataka. Few colleges in Mysuru, Belagavi, Chitradurga been selected, in a few days final decision to be take in which colleges shooting to take place. It is said that Film to bankroll from Feb 14th and second schedule to start from last week of March.
Hope this Industyhit combination thrash away all the records and will be memorable for the team.
