Yet another Malayalam heroine forays into the Kannada industry. Reba Monica John, who debuted opposite Nivin Pauly in Jacobinte Swargarajyam, has been signed to play the female lead of a yet-to-be-titled film, starring Rishi.

Incidentally, this film marks the debut of director Islauddin as well. Work on the project began today, after a simple puja.

Model-turned-actor Reba has roots in Kerala, but was born and brought up in Bengaluru. In fact, she has did her post-graduation from Christ University. Reba, who is a cousin of Anu Emmanuel, first faced the camera for commercial advertisements. A runner-up in the reality series Midukki, she has also worked in two Malayalam films. She's also soon to make her Tamil debut with Jargundi, and will follow that up with another Tamil film, Daavu, both of which she is currently shooting for. 

The actor has been lucky enough to get the opportunity to make her Kannada debut in a big-banner project that is jointly produced by Wunderbar Film and Jacob Varghese. Our sources tell us that the makers will be sharing some surprises about the film in the coming days.

Rishi, who came to limelight with Operation Alamellama, has recently completed shooting for Hemanth M Rao’s Kavalu Daari. He will join the sets of  this upcoming film, which is to be shot in Kengeri.
