KGF has been my priority: Srinidhi Shetty

Published: 04th April 2018

Model-turned-actor Srinidhi Ramesh Shetty is excited to be on the sets of her debut project KGF. The film directed by Prashanth Neel has the newcomer paired opposite Yash.

As the film’s schedule draws to a close, Srinidhi plans to take up her second film for which she will start looking at new scripts and begin discussions with various directors.

“Since KGF has been my priority, I have put my heart and soul into it and didn’t think of another project or have discussions about my next. Now that shooting for the first part will be done by May, and post-production will take some time, I can start considering other projects,” says Srindhi.

She had signed KGF in October 2016, but has never once given thought to the time consumed by this project. “I feel lucky to have been part of it and still wonder how it fell into my lap. This is my first film and  I don’t mind giving all my time for the director’s vision. I am just anxious to see that all goes well for KGF,” she says.

The team behind KGF is releasing it in five different languages. Language will never be a barrier for her, says the young actor, who is fluent in Kannada. “I am a Mangaluru hudugi, and I like speaking in my language, but I am okay to work in any industry, provided I find a director like Prashanth Neel, a script like KGF’s and an actor like Yash,” says the newcomer, adding, “This project, my very first, has only raised my expectations and I look forward to working with a team like this.”

She does not want to share much about the role, but is happy to talk about the pleasant work atmosphere on the sets. “Prashanth Neel is particular that the shot is taken the way he has visualised it and he makes sure that he gets it from you. Irrespective of your experience, he demands the same from everybody. This project has been a great learning experience,” she says.

About her co-star, she says, “When I see Yash sir’s acting and his dedication, I see how I am starting from scratch. There is a lot to learn.”
