Jaggesh tries new experiment

Comedy super star Jaggesh, who has not delivered any hit since Eddelu Manjunatha in 2009, is desperate for a hit. Consequently, he has roped in Sandalwood queen, Ramya for his next project
titled Neer Dose.

The movie has a typical Jaggesh storyline, where the protagonist works as a lowly ranked employee in the Bangalore City Corporation. Ramya is said to play the role of a high profile professional in the
movie. Initially, Ramya had withdrawn from the project, but surprisingly agreed to act in the movie.

Vijayaprasad, who directed Ramya’s last hit Siddlingu (2012), will direct Neer Dose. The movie went on the floors last year. However, shooting did not commence for four months. Now, shooting is in
full swing for the movie. However, Jaggesh does not want to reveal any details about the movie considering that it is his dream project.

In the last 8 years, Jaggesh has had 8 releases out of which 2 fared moderately at the BO. He even experimented with direction by taking up a movie, Guru, featuring his son in the lead role. But even
that movie did not perform well at the BO.

It was widely expected that Jaggesh would contest the Assembly polls from the BJP. But the actor-turned-politician has decided to keep away from politics to rejuvenate his filmy career. Will Neer
Dose bring luck in Jaggesh’s favour? Let us wait and watch.
