Few days ago we had hinted about preparations being done for the sequel of 2006 blockbuster movie Mungaru Male. And now, in fact yesterday morning, the movie was officially launched at Moggina Manassu director Shashank’s residence, in a hush-hush ceremony.
Though the pre-production work had started few months ago, it took the director few days to officially announce the sequel. The director also announced on his official facebook account that the script writing work begins today. With this, the speculation about the sequel has finally come to an end.
And to everyone’s surprise the sequel is not directed by Yograj Bhat. Mungaru Male was a career defining movie to Ganesh, Yograj Bhat as well as to Pooja Gandhi. However the news that Yograj Bhat is not helming the movie has disappointed many fans.
Heroine of the movie is also yet to be finalized. According to the director, the movie is not a sequel to Mungaru Male and also except for Ganesh, it will be a totally new star cast in Mungaru Male-2. Denying the fact that Pooja Gandhi will be a part of the film, Shashank said that the heroine of the film will be decided in the later stage of the script.
Also, speaking of the Rabbit ‘Devdas’, which had equal importance as that of a protagonist in Mungaru Male, Shashank said he is not really sure if the script demands rabbit’s character in Mungaru Male-2.
The story and dialogues for the movie will be written by the director Shashank himself. The director who has given super hit movies like Moggina Manasu and Krishnan Love Story previously is now busy with Krishna Leela with Ajay Rao and Mayoori.
Mungaru Male-2 will be made under the banner of E K Pictures, which had produced Mungaru Male. The shooting of the movie is expected to start from April 2015.
