Director Prem has started working on his much-awaited film, ‘The Villain’. Prem had started the pre-production work some time before. Now he has officially shot the teaser trailer of the movie which features Shivanna and Sruthi Hariharan, recently in Minerva Mill.

Sruthi Hariharan is totally excited to be working with such superstars like Shivarajkumar and Sudeep. Reportedly she has been paired opposite Shivarajkumar. She was signed a few days before the teaser was released. Even though she has a small role in the film, it is believed to be very crucial.

Director Prem also revealed that the teaser featuring Kichcha Sudeep and one more heroine will be shot in Chennai next week. Rumors were going around that Amy Jackson was to play the heroine opposite Sudeep, but these rumors were denied by Prem. More details about the second teaser shoot will be out this week. Apparently, Tamannaah has shown interest in being part of the film but nothing is official yet. If this happens then it would mark the entry fo Tamannaah in Kannada film industry. Even though she has done Tamil and Telugu films she is yet to mark her debut in the Sandalwood industry.

Apparently, the director also wants to change the Shivarajkumar and Sudeep’s look in the film. They are reported to be sporting wigs in this movie as Prem wants them to look the character they are playing. The director has tried it before with Puneeth Rajkumar for his film Raaj-The Showman.

The team will start shooting after the teaser featuring Sudeep and the other heroine is out.
