Ganavi Laxman finalised as Nathuram's heroine
The dancer and artiste, who has become a household name with Magalu Janaki, will make her silver screen debut opposite Rishab Shetty
Even as Rishab Shetty is still basking in the success of his latest film, Bell Bottom, the actor is getting ready to don yet another interesting role in his upcoming film, Nathuram. The film will mark the silver screen debut of director Vinu Balanja, who is a known name in small screen. The team was in search for a heroine, and after many auditions, they have found the right actor in Ganavi Laxman. The talented dancer and artiste from Chikmagalur, who has become a household name with TN Seetharam’s teleserial, Magalu Janaki, will make her transition to the silver screen with this film.
While Rishab is said to be getting a new image with his role as a follower of Gandhian principles in Nathuram, another powerful role is that of Kasturi which will be played by Ganavi. Apparently, her previous performances are what caught the attention of the makers, who chose to cast her in the film. An official announcement to this effect will be made by the production house soon, which plans to begin shoot sometime in the first week of March.
The film, produced by HK Prakash, under the banner Shreedevi production, also features Anant Nag, Kishore, Shivamani and Achyuth Kumar in pivotal roles. With Pragathi Shetty doing the costume designing, the film’s dialogues are written by Masthi.
