D/o Parvathamma being my silver jubilee film makes it all the more special: Hariprriya
The film, directed by Shankar J, is a women-centric film that the actor says she is proud to be part of
D/o Parvathamma will mark Hariprriya’s 25th film in Kannada and her 39th overall. The actor, who has also appeared in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam films, says, “I knew the career total was at 39, but it was the film’s team that apprised me that D/o Parvathamma would be my 25th in Kannada, which makes it all the more special.”
Hariprriya, who does not hail from a film background, tells us that the only person who has stood by her over the years is her mother. While she is happy with her journey so far, her one regret is not having gone to college. “Every person has some regret and mine is having missed out on college life. Most of my friends are well educated and have steady jobs. I am not complaining about my career, but I wish I had completed my education. After some thought, I have decided that at some point, I will do a course and try my hand at business. When I look back, I want to feel satisfied,” she says.
D/o Parvathamma, directed by Shankar J, is a women-centric film, one that the actor is proud to be part of. "Usually, when a film is heroine-centric, it is considered a bridge or art cinema. However, D/o Parvathamma stands out because it will have a commercial release. It feels good to know that the producers have faith in me,” she says.
Hariprriya, who plays an investigative officer, wants to keep the suspense around the 110-minute film. “Ours is a hatke film, which is apparent from the trailer and tagline — ‘Mistakes never die’. The underlying theme of the story is how karma will come to haunt you,” she says.
The actor, who plays a role with two distinct shades in D/o Parvathamma, was elated to share screen space with senior actor Sumalatha. “The on-screen chemistry looks very real. In fact when both of us were doing the scenes, the director had a tough time, and struggled to say ‘cut’,” she says.
