Puneet Rajkumar seems to be finally moving out of his comfort zone rather a place where he has found a lot of success. What his older siblings Shivaraj and Raghavendra Rajkumar did in their very early days of their acting career will be now done by the Power Star, who is ready to do a movie based on a novel. The interesting part of the story is that the film is the screen-adaptation of the novel Tumula written by Sudha Murthy, the chairperson of Infosys Foundation.
The latest buzz says that TS Nagabharana, who is known for many awarding winning films, is preparing the script and directing the film. It is said that Parvathamma Rajkumar expressed her wish to see energetic Puneet Rajkumar in a novel-based film with him and the director suggested the subject of Tumula to the veteran producer. Having read the story, Pavathamma gave green signal to his plans instantly, say sources.
Puneet Rajkumar has already given a nod to the proposed project and he will be kick starting the film once he completes Yaare Koogadali. Currently, TS Nagabharana is working on the script and finalizing the cast and crew.
The passion of the Raj family for making films based on novels is well known. To name a few, it has produced remarkable movies like Ratha Sapthami, Chigurida Kanasu, Janumada Jodi, Sagara Deepa etc.
