It’s Priya Anand for Orange
The film directed by Prashant Raj has the actor paired opposite Ganesh
The film Orange directed by Prashant Raj, went on floors on February 11. The director was looking for a female lead to star opposite Ganesh, and it looks like Priya Anand has bagged the role.
Rumours that Priya Anand would get the project had been doing the rounds for a while now, and now the news has finally been confirmed.
Priya Anand made her entry into Kannada with the Puneeth Rajkumar-starrer Raajakumara, directed by Santhosh Ananddram, which was declared a hit in the industry. She was looking for her second project in Kannada when Orange fell into her lap.
Prashant says, “I was looking for an exclusive pairing opposite Ganesh, who can create magic on screen, and we felt Priya was the right choice. Her career extends from Bollywood to Mollywood. She has her own versatility that she will bring to the film. When I was thinking of bringing in a fresh pair opposite Ganesh, she fit the bill and so I decided on her.”
Working with Priya was long overdue, says the director. “She was also looking for something interesting, and everything fell in place,” he says. The actor will be joining the sets of the film very soon.
Orange has music by Joshua Sridhar and Santhosh Rai Pataje is the film’s cinematographer, while Ravi Verma is choreographing the stunts.
