Udupi, Jan 21: Katapady Ashok Muddu Suvarna is bringing out a Kannada serial depicting the complete story of the legendary twin heroes, Koti-Chennaya, under the banner of Praja Films.

During the later years, his son Ashok M Suvarna produced 'Chomana Dudi' in Kannada, which was based on a novel of the same name by the late Gyan Pith award recipient Kota Shivarama Karanth. It won the national-level Swarna Kamal (Golden Lotus) award.
Ashok Suvarna is venturing into the small screen for the first time.
