Popular Tamil director KS Ravikimar started his career as an assistant to renowned director Bharathi Raja and eventually went on to make several blockbusters with Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan.

In Kannada, he delivered Kotigobba 2 starring Kichha Sudeepa and Nithya Menen in the lead. The film was a commercial hit.

Now, Ravikumar is all set to return to Sandalwood with his second directorial venture.

The filmmaker seems to have been inspired by pan-Indian projects. His next Kannada flick will have Hat-trick hero Dr Shiva Rajkumar and Golden Star Ganesh sharing the screen space for the first time.

There is no official information about this yet-to-be-titled project though.

While several ace Kannada actors like Ravichandran, Upendra, Sudeep, and Daali Dhananjay, worked with Shiva Rajkumar, this is the first time for Ganesh who is known for his rom-com flicks.
