Shivaraj Kumar is <i>Namma</i> Bond!

The actor will play a James Bond-like character in his next venture

The name is Bond. Shivanna Bond. Yes… you read it right. Shivaraj Kumar, the hattrick hero of Kannada movies is all set to play a spy in his next venture, Operation Golden Gang. Shivanna will essay the role of a stylish secret agent, with a penchant for the ladies, latest gadgets and cool cars. And he’ll have a host of bad guys thirsting for his blood.

A Ganesh, who had created the superhit Devara Maga with rebel star Ambareesh in 2000, will produce Operation Golden Gang. The movie’s official launch, which was delayed due to Shivanna’s health problems and prior commitments, will take place on June 12, with the shooting slated to commence around June 22. Shivanna will join the crew much later, after he has completed pending work on Lakshmi and Shiva.
