Hariprriya is Bell Bottom's heroine
Directed by Jayatheertha, the film set in the 80s stars her opposite Rishab Shetty
Director Jayatheertha has film buffs playing the guessing game with his upcoming film, Bell Bottom. He had recently left a clue on social media with regards to the heroine of the film. The director put out what looked like a film poster with the face of a girl and clues such as letters and tag lines all over the poster.
Minutes after this was put up, it was confirmed that Hariprriya would play the female lead opposite Rishab Shetty, the film’s male protagonist. Incidentally, Harippriya was also part of Ricky, directed by Rishab.
The film’s launch is scheduled for January 29. Our sources however have a few more details to share. The film is apparently set in the 80s, and accordingly the two leads will carry the look of that period. Even the cryptic poster that held the clue to the heroine's identity had an 80s feel. “After Neer Dose and the yet to be released Life Jothe Ondh Selfie, this is yet again an excellent role coming Hariprriya’s way,” a source tells us.
The makers are currently on a location hunt and plan to begin shooting from mid February. Bell Bottom is produced by Santhosh KC and has music by Ajaneesh Loknath, cinematography by Aravind Kashyap, and editing by KM Prakash.
