Project with Shivanna is a stepping stone: Mayuri
The Krishna Leela heroine will play a pivotal role in Ravi Varma’s Rustum, starring Shivarajkumar and Shraddha Srinath
Ravi Varma is casting briskly for his debut venture Rustum, and after Shraddha Srinath, the next to come on board is Mayuri Kyatari. The heroine, who has her hands full with three films, is all set to get a big break with Rustum, for she gets to share screenspace with Shivarajkumar.
The actor is quite excited to share the news with Cinema Express. "I play a prominent role, which is closely associated with the hero, played by Shivarajkumar," she says.
Ask Mayuri, whether she plays Shivanna’s sister in the film, and she quips, "I have been told not to reveal more details. But the fact is, this film will be a stepping stone for me because I get to work with a big banner, Jayanna Combines, and associate with Shivanna and director Ravi Varma. It is all a dream come true," she says.
Mayuri’s excitement only doubled when she heard that the director had sketched the character with her in mind. "It’s an honour to know that he didn’t look for another choice. At the same time, I understand that there is a lot of expectation from me. I am hoping to give my best," she says.
The actor, who will start to shoot for the film from May, is currently busy with a song shoot for Jaggesh-starrer 8MM in Goa Meanwhile, she has wrapped up Aatakuntu Lekakila with Sanchari Vijay and she has a song pending for Nanna Prakara. "This year will be amazing for me. I guess it’s all my dad’s blessing from above," she says.
Ravi Varma, who has roped in Anoop Seelin as the film’s music director has also brought on board Tagaru’s cinematographer, Mahendra Simha.
