Adityaa Shashikumar and Apoorva go back to teen years with Modave
Directed by Siddarth Maradeppa, the film revolves around the turbulence of adolescence
For his directorial debut, Siddharth Maradeppaa has picked an unusual title. Modave, which means pimple, the director says is apt for his teen-based drama. Actor Shashikumar’s son, Adityaa Shashikumar, will be making his debut with the film, and Apoorrva is paired opposite the newcomer. “The first sign of stepping into teenage is the breakout of pimples. My story revolves around the turbulence of teenage with a soft love story that will have a mass village backdrop,” says Siddharth, who emphasises that the meaning of the title should not be misinterpreted. “It’s just to represent the age,” he says.
Modave’s music is by Sridhar V Sambram, and the lyrics will be written by Yogaraj Bhat, Jayant Kaikini and V Nagendra Prasad. Produced Shivanand Shagoti and R Krishnamurthy, under Brownbull Studios, the film will have cinemtography by Uday Ballal.
Ravi Varma will choreograph the stunts for the film, which will have editing by Deepu S Kumar.
