Model turns director, debuts with Asavari

Roshini has chosen to go with a women-centric subject for her first film, which will be presented by Darshan

Published: 08th August 2018

Model turning heroines is common enough in the film industry. But here is Roshini, who walked the ramp and is now taking to direction as her next stint. Titled Asavari (based on the Hindustani raaga), she has chosen to go with a women-centric subject for her first film. Having written the story, she is in process of completing the screenplay and dialogues.

“I am beginning with an offbeat film. We have a woman playing the protagonist, and the search is on for the female lead,” says Roshini, who apart from modelling, also worked as a sound engineer. She adds that is inclined towards writing lyrics and composing music as well. Roshini took a break from modelling to study direction and Asavari will be her first project.

The debutant's first film will be presented by Challenging star Darshan. The young director and team met the actor, narrated the subject and are glad to have his support. “A star supporting our film is an achievement in itself. It will be a first-of-its-kind film and the story is one which has not been told till date,” Roshni says.

The director plans to go on floors by the end of September, before which she will finalise the cast. Meanwhile, Roshini has brought on board Vikram Chetan to score the music. “Vikram is a student of Sangeetha Katti and has been a part of AR Rahman’s troupe. He has scored music for Anurag Kashyap’s Bollywood film Monsoon Shootout, and this will be his debut in Kannada,” she adds.

Asavari will have cinematography by Seenu.
