Balaji Manohar joins cast of Rakshit Shetty's Avane Srimannarayana
The script for the period romantic drama set in the 80s is written by Rakshit, who also plays the lead in the film
Balaji Manohar has consistently managed to draw attention with his content driven characters, and one recent example is his latest outing, Churikatte.
The actor now has a bigger role to play as he will be cast alongside Rakshit Shetty in Avane Srimannarayana. The film, being directed by editor-turned-director Sachin, is now in the last phase of pre-production work.
The film's script is being written by Rakshit, who will also play the lead character. We hear that Rakshit is currently toning his body for the role. Shanvi Srivastava will play the female lead, while Achyuth Kumar will also be part of the cast. Balaji Manohar coming on board has added to the buzz around the film.
The team plans to shoot at one stretch from March 1 and will begin filming in the exterior parts of North Karnataka. They have apparently already identified locations for this shoot. Following this, the remainder of the film will be shot in Bengaluru.
Avane Srimrannarayana is a joint venture of Rakshit Paramvah studios, Pushkar Films and HK Prakash. The period romantic drama set in the 80s is planned with rich production and artistic values. It will have music by Charan Raj and cinematography by Karm Chawla.
