The director had earlier planned to rope in Sruthi Hariharan for the role opposite Rishi
Initially, there were speculations of Sruthi Hariharan being part of BS Lingadevaru’s directorial Daari Thapisu Devare. However, the latest development about this is that newbie Raashi Mahadev is said to have come on board for the Rishi-starrer.
Raashi has previously worked in Pardeshi C/o of London, starring Vijay Raghavendra, and this will be her second project. While the makers have finalised the heroine, an official confirmation will be made once she signs the dotted line.
Daari Thapisu Devare is based on articles from a book. Raashi will be seen playing the role of a modern girl from Malnad. With music by Anoop Seelin, the film will be shot in Chickmangaluru, Karkala, Thirthhalli and surrounding places. The initial plan was to go ahead with the project in November. However, the shoot has been postponed for now.
Meanwhile, Rishi, who has completed shooting for Jacob Varghese’s project, is on the sets of Sarvajanikariga Suvarana Avakasha.
