Almost four years back, there was a news of Chethan Kumar of 'Bahaddur' fame directing Puneeth in a new film called 'James'. However, the film didn't take off because of Puneeth's prior commitments. Now the film is in news again.
Recently, Chethan and producer Patthikonda Kishore who had distributed films like Puneeth's 'Mythri' and 'Om' met Puneeth and had discussions with him about the film. It is being said that the official announcement of the film will be made on Puneeth's birthday next month.
Though 'James' will be announced next month, the film will be launched only later this year, as Puneeth will be joining the sets of Santhosh Anandram's 'Yuvaratna' soon.
