Veteran actor Kabir Bedi will make his Kannada debut with Kari Haida? Koragajja. It is a film about a 12th-century Adivasi boy who is worshiped as a god. The film explores the indigenous culture and traditions in Karnataka.
Talking about the film Bedi said, "Very good cast, a good director and producer, and above all a great story. I think it will make for a beautiful viewing experience."
"I feel that this film should touch hearts of people because it is already a legend among the people, especially in the Mangalore region, and it is time that the rest of India and hopefully rest of the world discovers the beauty of it," he concluded.
Talking about working with Kabir Bedi on his regional debut, director Sudheer Attavar said, "To be honest, I didn't direct Kabir Sir, I just learnt a lot from him. The way he picked up the language and diction, it is amazing. I was fearful of approaching him for the film, as he is such an international star but he graciously accepted the role and did an amazing job."
Backed by Trivikram Sapalya, the film is being made under the banner of Druthi Creations and Success Films. It also features Sandip Soparrkar, Shruti, Bhavya and Naveen Padil. The film is directed by Attavar which will see Bedi play the role of a king.
