Rachita Ram: 2020 has been kind to me
The actor opens up about her next project, to be directed by Arunkumar M and Sabu Aloysius, and the long list of projects in her kitty
Rachita Ram is unstoppable. One of the few Kannada actors who signed a series of projects during the pandemic, she has also made her presence felt on the small-screen as the judge of the reality comedy show, Majaa Bharatha. Rachita has a dozen films lined up either for release or shooting, and in the midst of all this, she has now bagged yet another film. This one will have her collaborating with Malayalam directors Arunkumar M and Sabu Aloysius.
The project will be the second venture made under the banner of director Lohith H's Friday Films. Silver Train International has co-produced the film.
Rachita recently took to social media to make this announcement, and said, “Life is so colourful. I always get a reason to smile in form of a beautiful and thrilling script. Now I am sure this will lead to many sleepless nights. Very excited to be part of this exciting and talented team.”
Speaking to Cinema Express, Rachita says it was the storyline that drew her to this project. “The journey of the heroine goes along with that of the father, and it’s a role I can closely connect with. Secondly, the character is very challenging.”
She adds, “It will be a first-time experience for me to be working in a film with two directors... that too from the Malayalam industry. They are really passionate about their work. I will be able to share a little more news when I begin shooting for the project next month.”
While the pandemic which has brought the whole world to a standstill this year, Rachita says 2020 has been kind to her. “The lockdown did not stop me from listening to scripts, and choosing the best of the lot. To my surprise, many filmmakers who approached me came with fantastic scripts which I couldn’t reject. I discussed with all the directors my love for each film, and am making sure I go ahead with a plan.”
The actor is looking forward to the release of 100, directed by Ramesh Aravind, followed by Prem’s Ek Love Ya. Post lockdown, she has completed the pending portions of her Telugu debut Super Machi, and she followed that with the shooting of S Ravindranath’s Monsoon Raaga, starring Dhananjay and produced by Vikyath.
Rachita is also part of Lilly, April, Veeram, and Matinee. “The next year will be a packed one for me. I look forward to entertaining the audiences with a variety of subjects and roles,” she signs off.
