Ratnamanjari heroines kept in dark on film’s climax
Prasidh had not revealed the climax to the technicians too till they watched the film at the edit desk
We have heard of directors and production houses wanting to maintain suspense until a film’s release. However, Ratnamanjari director Prasidh has managed to keep the climax portions under wraps even from his teammates, including the three heroines -- Akhila Prakash, Pallavi Raju and Shraddha Saliana, who are awaiting the film's release on May 17.
“I had a reason to do this. Initially I was planning to cast known faces for the film. Since the screen space for two heroines was less compared to the lead, they didn’t want to be part of the project. However, I wanted to stick to my storyline, and decided to go with fresh faces,” says the director. “I told them that they will know who ‘Ratnamanjari’ is when the audience does,” he says.
Prasidh had not revealed the climax to the technicians too till they watched the film at the edit desk. The film, produced by NRI Kannadigas, features Raj Charan as the hero.
Ratnamanjari has music by Harshavardhan Raj and cinematography by Pretham Tegginamane.
