Solo-heroine show for Krishi Thapanda
The actor, whose Kannadakkagi Ondannu Otti is set for release this week, says that the film will see her in a ‘different’ kind of role
Kannadakkagi Ondannu Otti, directed by Kushal Gowda, is a special film that Krishi Thapanda is looking forward to. Ahead of the film’s release later this week, the actor says that after being part of multi-starrers, this will be film which stars her as a solo heroine. “In addition, my character requires me to play two different shades in the film. While one side of my character--a college goer--has been revealed, the second is being kept a suspense. It will be revealed only on the day of the film’s release,” says Krishi, who is thrilled that the director of the film designed a special character for her.
“I like to experiment with my roles, but it so happens that most directors come to me with characters which mostly require me to be bubbly. Maybe, my off screen look makes filmmakers think that I will only suit certain characters. I’ve been waiting for the right kind of film--one that will give me a break. That’s when Kannadakkagi came by, and I am glad that the film has a different kind of role,” she adds.
With a unique title like Kannadakkagi.. there are bound to assumptions about the storyline. Krishi clarifies that “most people are assuming that it’s a suspense-thriller, but it is a proper love story, which comes with its own twist and turns.” The actor also asserts that the film is not a remake of any Tamil film, contrary to the word that is going around. “The fact is that a Tamil film has a similar title and that has created a lot of confusion. It is a straight subject, and has nothing to do with any film from any other language,” she explains, and reveals that 'Kannadakkagi ondannu otti' is a line that keeps popping up often in the film, which is why the makers decided to use it as the title of the film. “There is nothing preachy and the whole film has been shot in Karnataka,” she adds.
While Shatamarshan Avinash is paired opposite Krishi, the actor will mostly be sharing space with Chikkanna and senior actor Suchendra Prasad. The film has music by Arjun Janya.
