A song drew Swathi Konde to her role in Bharani
The film directed by Chananiraju Nermanvi has her paired opposite newcomer Madhava
It is rare for an actor to accept a role after listening to just one song from the film. But that is how Swathi Konde decided on her next film Bharani.
“I could visualise the innocence of the character offered to me while listening to this song. I could picture myself in it and I wanted to be part of the film,” she says.
Bharani, which has an interesting tag line--Paravathammanna Maga, marks the directorial debut of Chananiraju Neermanvi. Another debutant Madhava, who is the cousin of Yogish of Loose Mada fame, will also be making his tinsel town entry through this film.
Produced by Yogesh, the film is being backed by Sajid Qureshi, the producer of Nagarahavu. The makers shared the first look of the lead pair with us, and it shows that the film is set in a typical village backdrop. More details will be revealed when the team starts shooting from first week of February.
Swathi Konda, who was launched by Jayatheertha in Beautiful Manasagalu, in which she had a prominent role, plays the lead in the director’s Vanilla. The film is now in post-production. She has also completed shooting for Kamarotu Checkpost and Katu Kathe, which are yet to be released. “Bharani will be my fifth film,” she says.
