Radhika Pandit and Nirup Bhandari film starts soon
Made under Rockline Productions, the yet-to-be-titled film marks the directorial debut of V Priya in Kannada
News of Radhika Pandit and Nirup Bhandari coming together for a film made under Rockline Productions created a buzz in the Kannada industry. This film is now set to go on floors, with the official launch date fixed for December 1. Producer Rockline Venkatesh, who decided to do this project for its script written by V Priya, confirms this. Priya, who has assisted director Maniratnam and helmed three Tamil projects, will make her directorial debut in Kannada with this film.
‘There is nervous excitement’
Priya, who has been camping in Bengaluru, is eager to start the shoot from December 11. “I have a nervous excitement,” says the director, who is yet to decide on the title. “We have a few options and are in the process of finalising an apt one,” she adds.
The storyline will include action, comedy and love. “It will be a family entertainer, for young and the old,” she says. The film also has an interesting cast, including Tara and Suchendara Prasad, with Preetha Jayaram as its cinematographer. The production house and director will share more details, once the film starts rolling.
Double dhamaka for Radhika
Radhika will be celebrating her wedding anniversary (Yash and Radhika got married on December 10, 2016) and getting to do what she likes the best -- acting. She says, “I can’t believe how time flies. It is going to be a year of my marriage. I am also looking forward to facing the camera.” The celebrity couple are planning a trip abroad to celebrate the occasion, and Radhika will join the sets on her return.
Nirup is looking forward to working with a new team
Nirup Bhandari, who has been recovering from the injury he got during the shooting of an action sequence for Rajaratha, is part of a song being filmed for this film and will complete it today. All the while he has been preparing himself for his next with Priya, including gaining a few kilos.
“I will start shoot from December 11, but, in a way, I have been preparing for this film over the last month by reading through the script. I know the character well now and have ten more days to brush up,” he says.
This is Nirup’s third film, and first with a new director, and he is glad to be working with a whole new team.
