Kajal Aggarwal in Bul Bul

Glamorous Kajal Aggarwal, one of the busiest heroines in the South, is all set to act with Darshan in Bul Bul, but only if her dates match with Darshan’s. Bul Bul is the remake of the Telugu film Darling produced by Challenging Star’s younger brother Dinakar Darshan and a group of technicians comprising director M.D. Sridhar, cameraman A.V. Krishna Kumar, music director Hari Krishna and others. Kajal Aggarwal was also the heroine opposite Prabhas in Darling, which was made under his home production banner.

Darshan is presently working overtime to finish his long pending projects, including Harsha directed Chingari (for which the final schedule is now progressing in Bangkok) and Naganna directed historical venture Sangolli Raayanna (for which shooting will be completed in two schedules). He is also to take up H. Vasu’s next film to be made by a new producer. Vasu’s film’s mahurat will be held on Vara Mahalakshmi festival (August 12) after which five to six days shooting has been planned without Darshan. The regular shooting of the film may start only from September 1st. Darshan also plans to concentrate on the promotions of his forthcoming film Sarathy which is releasing in July.

With these constraints, it has been quite difficult for Darshan to allot dates for a film being produced by his brother Dinakar in association with a few technicians. Unless the shooting and dubbing work for Kranti Veera Sangolli Raayanna are finished and major portions of the shooting for H. Vasu’s film is completed, Darshan does not want to start Bul Bul in which he will appear with a new look.

Dinakar confirmed that Kajal Aggarwal has been approached for the role and she has agreed to work in her first Kannada film with the hugely popular star Darshan. Even the remuneration aspect has been discussed, but can Darshan allot dates?

Kajal Aggarwal is busy with Tamil and Telugu films and has also begun her first Bollywood venture with Ajay Devgn (for the Hindi remake of Tamil film Singam). The most sought-after artiste in Telugu films, she is considered to be the luckiest star there, thanks to her record of working in the mega blockbusters Magadheera, Brindavanam, Darling and the recently released Mr. Perfect. She has recently signed a film with top star Mahesh Babu in the Businessman to be directed by Puri Jagannath and another film with Pawan Kalyan in the remake of the Hindi hit Dabbang.

Will Kajol shine in a Kannada film too? It all depends on Darshan’s call sheet for Bul Bul.
