Surya's production house ventures into Kannada films
Kannada film industry seems to be getting bigger and better with each year and there seems to be a lot of production houses from other languages who have started eyeing the Sandalwood market. The first among them is Studio Green, the production house owned by Tamil actor Surya and his cousin KE Gnanavelraja.

Studio Green is negotiating a deal with the makers of Mynaa, which stars Chetan Kumar and Nithya Menon. If things go as planned, it would start its activities in Kannada film industry by purchasing the film directed by Nagashekhar of Sanju Weds Geetha fame. Gnanavelraja has confirmed the news and said that they want to venture into Kannada films.

The producer-distributor adds that he wishes to make good films in Sandalwood and the production house is likely to enter with Mynaa. They have already seen the film and the content has impressed them. However, the film, which was supposed to be made in multiple languages, might not happen if they sell the film.

Mynaa is a story based on a real-life incident and it has to be noted that it is not a remake of Tamil film of the same name. The film has an interesting cast comprising of Sarath Kumar, Suhasini Mani Ratnam, Suman Ranganathan, Malavika Avinash, Rangayana Raghu, Telugu actor Ajay and others.
