The shooting for comedy star Komal’s next project Pungi Dasa has been completed. The actor chose to shoot for the movie without making much noise. Only shooting for two songs and two action sequences are pending.
The movie, which is produced by Sadashiv under the SSV Productions banner, is being directed by Rambo Srinath. The director shot to fame after directing last year’s comedy hit Rambo, which propelled another comedy actor Sharan to the lead actor category.
Incidentally, Srinath has also written the story and script for Victory, another comedy featuring Sharan in the lead. However, Srinath has not directed that movie.
Pungi Dasa is about a grandson, who is entrusted with the task of recovering money lent by his grandfather. The story focuses on some of the extreme tactics adopted by the protagonist to recover the money, and in the process the comical scenes.
Asma, a new-comer, is the female lead of the Pungi Dasa. While veteran actor R N Sudarshan plays the role of the grandfather, Sowgar Janaki is the grandmother. After a long gap, Sowgar Janaki is acting in a Kannada movie.
The support star cast includes Tabala Nani, Kuri Prathap, Bullet Prakash, Padmaja Rao and Rajendra Karanth. Arul is the cinematographer for the movie while Farhan Roshan (earlier known as Emil) has composed the music for Pungi Dasa. He had earlier composed the music for Yogi’s hit movie Nanda Loves Nanditha.
The shooting for the movie was done extensively in and around Bangalore.
