Shivaraj Kumar in and as ‘CM’!

The twist? CM doesn’t stand for what you think it does

It is not rare for a south Indian hero to air his political dreams and electoral aspirations on screen. The latest hero to do it is Shivaraj Kumar, who has signed a new movie titled CM. But hey, the “hat trick hero” is not playing a Chief Minister here. CM stands for Common Man! The film will be directed by Raghuram, who had earlier made Cheluveye Ninne Nodalu, an average grosser at the box office. CM is being produced jointly by Shankaregowda and Sudeep. In fact, Sudeep is also directing Shivaraj Kumar in his own production. The film, tentatively titled 1993, is expected to go on floors next month. CM will hit the floors in January 2012.
