Even though the shoot of V Priya’s directorial debut in Kannada, starring Radhika Pandit and Nirup Bhandari, had been completed, the makers were taking time to finalise a title for their film. The team, which was looking for a name that suits the story, has now titled their film Aadi Lakshmi Purana.  The project made under Rockline productions features the fresh combination of Radhika and Nirup, who are acting together for the first time.

Aadi Lakshmi Purana is a story about the lead pair. We’re hoping the name generates curiosity.  The film, which is a love story, is a pure entertainer. I would call it a screenplay-driven script, which is light. It comes with its own twists and turns,” says Priya, who apart from direction has written the story and screenplay of the film. 

Now in the post-production stage, Priya says that the film is coming along just the way she had visualised it. The filmmaker has previously assisted Mani Ratnam and has directed two Tamil films: Kanda Naal Mudhal and Kannamoochi Yenada

Aadi Lakshmi Purana also features Sowmya Jaganmurthy, Joe Simon, Yashwanth Shetty, Bharath Kalyan, along with a host of theatre artistes as part of the cast. The film’s dialogues are by Prashanth Rajappa and the cinematography is by Preetha Jayaraman. With music scored by Anup Bhandari, Aadi Lakshmi Purana has Joni Harsha at the edit desk and has art design by the late Ismail.
