M S Ramesh, Yogish Hunsur and Ramanath Rigvedi were present at Kali’s song recording muhurta.

hief Minister Siddaramaiah unveiled the title of Shivarajkumar-Sudeep’s new starrer at a glittering function in Bengaluru. The film which is being directed by Prem and produced by C R Manohar is titled ‘Kali’.

A set was specially erected for the title launch on the sprawling lawns of Hotel Lalit Ashok. Kali will be a multilingual film and is expected to be made at a budget of Rs 100 crore. Sudeep will act in all the four languages – Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi – while Shivarajkumar will appear in the Kannada version.

Siddaramaiah said it is the coming together of two big stars in a single movie. He said there are going to be a lot of expectations riding on this multistarrer film which now rests with the director. Siddaramaiah wished the new combination all success.

Speaking on the occasion, Jaggesh said the launch of new Kali spells something special for the industry. The two eyes of the industry are coming together and with the first letter of the title being Ka, a new chapter is opening up in Kannada cinema. He said people used to earlier say that industry lacks unity and that has been proved wrong today. Jaggesh said while Rajkumar had acted with all, his son Shivanna is acting with Sudeep. Jaggesh said people from neighbouring film industry states should sit up and take notice besides being talked about. He hoped that artistes, technicians, producers and directors from the other states should evince interest about this movie.

Ambarish said the film industry is like a family. He said he came as a villain, became a hero and turned to playing supporting roles and now has become a politician with the blessings of people.

Shivarajkumar said he had heard the title but not the story. He said he had no qualms about acting with anyone. The title says warrior and ruler but he said all were warriors and the ruler was above.

Sudeep said it was an honour to work with Shivanna as he had an ambition to work with him. He said he had seen Shivanna’s Om 13 to 14 times when it was released. He said he didn’t know about Prem’s script and added that the director would be responsible for everything because the producer is investing huge monehy.   

Director Prem expressed confidence that he will make a good film with two tigers acting in it. He said there were no gimmicks but added that he was scared to go on floor without preparation or doing any homework.

Producer Manohar said Kali is a period film. 

Former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy also attended the function.
