'I don't play a regular heroine in Pailwaan'
...says Aakanksha Singh, as she talks about her working experiences with Sudeep, director Krishna, and more
Director Krishna has completed shooting for Pailwaan that features Sudeep and Aakanksha Singh in the lead. Terming the experience as the ‘best one so far’, Aakanksha shared her experience in a video that was put up on social media on Women’s Day.
Meanwhile, the makers have also revealed the first few stills of Aakanksha from Pailwaan will see her in two shades. “The film is directed by a woman, Swapna Krishna, and I am the heroine. More power to women,” she says, adding that they started shooting last May and for almost nine months, she was the only girl on the sets. “Since Swapna Ma’am was always a call away I never felt I am alone on the sets. People around me never made me left out and in fact, gave me a lot of confidence,” she says.
While she doesn’t get into the details of the character, she says that her role in Pailwaan is not a regular one. “My character is given adequate importance, and the director has enabled me to showcase my acting talent. I am very fortunate that Krishna wrote something like this, something that can be analysed when the film releases,” she tells us.
The film has more than a couple of actors making their Kannada debut, including Suniel Shetty and Sushant Singh in pivotal roles. Kabir Duhan Singh and Sharath Lohithashwa are also part of the cast.
Pailwaan made under RRR Motion Pictures, is slated for a summer release in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Hindi, Punjabi, Marathi, Bhojpuri and Bengali.
