Nayantara to act in her first Kannada film

Both Upendra and Rockline Venkatesh felt that Nayantara would be appropriate to do a lead role in this film. The movie will be made in three languages - Kannada, Telugu and Tamil. Incidentally Nayantara is now working only in a few Telugu films and is all set to sign some new Tamil films shortly.

Her Telugu film "Simha" in which she is paired with Balakrishna is now being shot in Hyderabad. Upendra said that he did try to select his cast only after he had finished writing the script of the film.

"Nayantara perfectly fits into the role. I took nearly one year writing the script of the film. I am very happy about the way the script has shaped up. I am sure that the audience will find many novelties in the film. It would provide a different experience for the viewers. I am now focused on selecting other artists for the film.

The audition work is already over. I will announce the list of artists on the day the film will be launched," Upendra told reporters. Upendra has hired Johny Lal as the cameraman of the film. V. Manohar who provided music for Upendra's first directorial venture "Tarle Nan Maga" has been chosen to do the music direction of the film.  Shooting will start Feb 15 and major portions will be filmed abroad, particularly in London.
