Raj B Shetty to play an investigative officer in Mahira

The Ondu Motteya Kathe actor will play an intelligence officer in the upcoming film

Published: 03rd September 2018

Raj B Shetty, who played a Kannada professor in Ondu Motteya Kathe, will now don the role of an investigative police officer in his next film, Mahira. The title derived from a Sanskrit word 'mahira', meaning a strong woman, goes with the theme of the film, says debutant director Mahesh Gowda.

“We are not aiming at sending out any social message on women empowerment. It is a suspense-thriller, which revolves around a mother-daughter duo. It is narrated in a fast-paced style akin to Bourne series. I call this parallel cinema which is content-driven,” says the first-time director.  

While Raj will be seen playing the role of an intelligence officer, Virginia Rodrigues and Chaithra Achar play the mother and daughter roles, respectively. Virginia is a well-known theatre artiste and a student of MS Sathyu, who has staged plays in London. “The peaceful life of the mother and daughter is disrupted by a sudden revelation. Faced with multiple threats, the mother goes to the farthest extent to protect her daughter,” Mahesh adds.  

Ahead of the teaser release, the director says, “I will take the audience through a whirlpool of twists and turns. The unpredictable storyline will keep viewers guessing about the next step.”

Made under Jackpot productions, the film is now in the post-production stage. Mahira’s music is by Neelima Rao and Rakesh UP, and its cinematography is by Keertan Pujari.
