Simran, who has been doing supporting roles after her marriage, will be playing one of the female lead roles in Godfather. Upendra will be seen in triple roles in which the actress is reportedly pairing up for the senior character of Uppi in the film.
Simran, who dominated the Tamil and Telugu films, made her Sandalwood debut in Shivraj Kumar starrer Simhada Mari in 1997. Meanwhile, the hunt for other female lead roles is on.
Godfather is a remake of Tamil blockbuster Varalaru, which starred Ajith Kumar, Asin Thottumkal and Kanika Subramaniam. The story was written and directed by KS Ravikumar. However, Tamil cinematographer PC Sriram directs the Kannada version of the film and K Manju is the producer.
