Pathibeku.com delves into challenges of online groom-hunting 

Sheetal Shetty, who plays the protagonist in the film, talks to us about her upcoming release and what the idea of ‘settling down’ means to her

Published: 05th September 2018

Sheetal Shetty, once a popular television anchor, is now ready to take up a full-fledged role in Pathibeku.com. While she began her acting stint in Ulidavaru Kandante, Sheetal hopes that her upcoming film will give her a break in the Kannada industry.  

Ahead of the film’s release this Friday, the actor says, “Acting happened by accident. I did get a lot of offers during my anchoring days. But I wanted to stick to my profession as a journalist for some time. However, when I was offered Ulidavaru Kandate, I thought that I should give it a try. I was lucky that it was well received. I am not here to become a heroine, because I am not one. However, I am putting in an effort towards getting noticed as an artiste.”

Her upcoming film, Pathibeku.com, revolves around matrimonial sites, a subject that every middle-class household, especially the ones groom-hunting for their daughters, can connect to. “The story is about a girl in her late 20s, who is being pressurised by her parents to get married, and so she gets on a matrimonial site to find a groom. The consequences and challenges she faces during her search for a life partner is the crux of Pathibeku.com. It’s a fun narrative,” says Sheetal, adding, “I play the protagonist who is a free-spirited woman. The film brings out the mindset of a middle-class girl, who has tasted independence. With many questions in mind, she goes in search of answers about life and marriage.”

Sheetal says she finds it hard to understand the idea of ‘settling down’. “I believe in companionship, but the idea of marriage and ‘settling down in life’, is something I have never understood till date. I suppose my thoughts are different,” she says. 

Pathibeku.com also features Aru Gowda, Salmaan, Harini and Krishna Adiga. The film’s music is by Harsha, and the cinematography is by Yogi.
