RGV had also met the Muthappa to discuss the project. However, as per a latest report, RGV has now decided to rope in Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi for the role. 

 

The film will mark Vivek's Kannada debut. A report says that after scripting the film RGV felt that it was only Vivek who could have pulled off a role like this with his attitude and intensity. 

 

RGV and Vivek have worked together on many films earlier - Company, Road etc.
