After the success of his romantic saga Sapta Sagaradache Ello film series, Hemanth Rao is gearing up for his next feature film. The makers of the film have announced that the director would be collaborating with actor Shiva Rajkumar in the lead role. Currently titled Production No.1, the film is produced by Vaishakh J Gowda under the Vaishakh J Films banner.
Hemanth Rao had previously collaborated with the Rajkumar family in 2019’s thriller Kavaludaari. The film was produced by the late Puneeth Rajkumar under the PRK Studios banner. The new film would be Rao’s fifth feature. He had previously mentioned in other interviews that he was working on a sci-fi concept. He had also teased the film in an Instagram post which only indicated the number ‘5’ in a background which had diagrams of old tools. It is not confirmed whether it is the same project.
The filmmaker’s Sapta Sagaradaache Ello - Side B recently started streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
