Sex bomb Namitha and the glamorous Saloni team up in Benki Birugaali (Fire and Storm) to be directed by the Telugu director Bashith.  

The film has Rishi playing the lead and the film will start shooting shortly. Crazy Star Ravichandran held the clap for the film on the `muhurath` day. The film was launched on Monday in Kanteerava Studios where both Namitha and Saloni were present to share their happiness to be a part of this action thriller.  

Bashith who directed the Telugu film Ramdev recently said that his intention is to make an action packed `paisa vasool` entertainer through this film. 

"There will be some `mast` songs and `jabardast` action sequences in the film. We plan to release the film in April this year", said Bashith. 

Namitha said that she has made a conscious decision to be seen in more number of action oriented roles in the coming days. Benki Birugaali is just the start. 

She has already completed major portions of her shoot in another Kannada film Namitha I Love You where she plays a yoga teacher.

Saloni who has acted in films like Budhdhivantha, Mr. Theertha and Dubai Seenu said that she is very happy to return to Kannada films.

"I am also excited to work with a popular star like Namitha", said Saloni. After her Telugu film Maryada Ramanna became a big hit, Saloni decided to pick and choose her films. Rishi is playing the role of a singer in this action oriented film. Sri Lekha is the music director.
