Surappa Babu, who produced Kotigobba, is also producing the sequel which has been titled Kotigobba 2. â€œIt is a long pending idea. Work on the story is progressing. If Vishnuvardhan was alive, he would have been the obvious choice. But now we have a new Vishnuvardhan in Sudeep ,â€ Babu said.
Confirming the development, Sudeep says, â€œIt is happening by the year-end. I just liked the idea of going on those lines. I was informed that Suresh Krishna, the original director of Basha, is working on it. Soorappa has discussed the idea with me,â€ Sudeep said.
Alternative to some extent is possible on this earth. Look at the preparations for â€˜Kotigobba-2â€™. Director Suresh Krissna the original Tamil film â€˜Bashaâ€™ director progress on a sequel to his subject but not in Tamil but in Kannada. What Dr Vishnuvardhana had done in â€˜Kotigobba-2â€™ that settled the life of a producer Soorappa Babu is now taken up for Kichcha Sudeep.
As of now Sudeep is seen as an alternative to Dr Vishnuvardhana ever since Dwarakish veteran producer, actor and director traced him for â€˜Vishnuvardhanaâ€™.
Even Sudeep considers that he is the follower of such a legendary actor but does not want to get into the shoes of Dr Vishnuvardhana aping him.
For producer Soorappa Babu (who made Kotigobba, Jyeshta, Kadamba with Dr Vishnuvardhana and later quarreled with the legendary actor on remuneration issue) is making a sequel to â€˜Kotigobbaâ€™. Suresh Krissna has prepared the script for this film. It is Suresh Krissna directed two films starring Dr Vishnuvardhana Kadamba and Jyeshta for producer Soorappa Babu.
As of now Suresh Krissna has almost completed the shoot for first 3D film in Kannada â€˜Katari Veera Surasundarangiâ€™ starring Upendra and Ramya in lead roles.
The Tamil version â€˜Bashaâ€™ made as â€˜Kotigobbaâ€™ now getting the sequel ready by this year end and it is made in Kannada is something notable. It happened for â€˜Mani Chitrathalâ€™ Malayalam film. It was re-written by director P Vasu as â€˜Aptha Mithraâ€™. Based on Kannada version the Tamil and Telugu versions â€˜Chandramukhiâ€™ and â€˜Nagavalliâ€™ were made.
