Roshni Prakash explores creative side during lockdown

Roshni, who is currently in Mysuru, has associated with a couple of friends to come up with a script

Published: 19th May 2021

Roshni Prakash, who was last seen in Hemanth M Rao’s Kavaludaari, took some time to choose her next project in Kannada. Now, she is part of two films-- Pradeep Varma’s Murphy starring Prabhu Mundkur, and Nagendra Prasad’s yet-to-be-titled debut directorial, which will be the Kannada version of the Tamil hit film, Oh My Kadavule. The remake has her paired along with Love Mocktail hero, Krishna, and also stars Sangeetha Sringeri. It is also suggested that Puneeth Rajkumar will step into the shoes of Vijay Sethupathi from the original.

Roshni, who has completed one schedule for both the films, is waiting to resume shooting. An actor, who has made her mark in  Tamil and Telugu, she was part of Aha's latest Telugu web series, 11th hour. The crime thriller directed by Praveen Sattaru had her sharing screen space with Tamannaah Bhatia. “47 days was my last film in Telugu to release on OTT, and 11th hour is my first web series in Telugu. I am glad to be getting good feedback for my role,” says Roshni, who is careful about picking the right kind of subjects in each language. “Post Kavaludaari, I was getting opportunities in Kannada, but for those which I was approached, the subjects were not working out for me. Every time I got a script, I could only see mistakes in them, and had to reject the offers,” says Roshni.

She has been making use of the lockdown to the fullest to explore her creative side. The model-turned-actor has completed a diploma in Bharatanatyam and is trained by Dr. Sreelatha Vinod from Tamil Nadu Music and Fine Arts University. We also hear that Roshni is also exploring her writing skills right now.

Roshni, who is currently in Mysuru, has associated with a couple of friends to come up with a script. “I am working on a script with Rajni Mysore Chamaraj, a director from Canada. She holds a master’s degree in filmmaking from New York Film Academy, and has won awards for her short films - The Day I Met Joshua, and Finding Home. A group of us including Keerthi is coming up with a script which is still in the development stage,” says Roshni, adding, “I will also be acting in the story, the rest of the casting and technical details will be decided later,” she says.
