Sandalwood industry sources have stated that director Prem, who is very well known for his mass-oriented films, is back to direction with The Villain. Apparently, the director has had to invest couple of years for The Villain's script work. This is the first time that Dr. Shivarajkumar and Kichcha Sudeep are acting together in a film and will be seen sharing screen space in the cinema, which makes for a visual treat for both the fans of Sudeep and Shivanna.
The movie also features British actress and model, Amy Jackson as its female lead. Apparently, this is Amy Jackson's first Kannada film and the movie is one of the most costly Sandalwood films to have ever been made. Although the exact budget is not known now, literally huge amounts of money have been spent on the film's making.
Sources have stated that with the film, The
Villain, director Prem and Dr. Shivarajkumar will collaborate for the third
time in their career. Their previous two collaborations were declared
super-hits as well and there is no doubt about The Villain becoming a super-hit
film. If that happens, the Prem & Shivanna duo will score a hat-trick.
