Actor-producer Shruti Naidu turns director 

With Premier Padmini having fared well at the box office, she is now preparing to helm a project

Published: 20th May 2019

Shruti Naidu, who started off as a producer for tele serials is overwhelmed with the appreciation that has been pouring in for her first productional silver screen venture, Premier Padmini.

The film, starring Jaggesh and directed by Ramesh Indra, was applauded for its content and it has also completed 25 days in the theatres today. This has only pushed producer Shruti to now try her hands at direction too. She will be making her directorial debut in her next production venture. 

“I wanted to take a call on my next venture, but I was waiting to see how Premier Padmini would fare at the box office. Based on the outcome, I am confident to try my hand at other departments. I had written and directed a short series, Athi Madura Anuraga, but was keen to do a full-length feature film,” says Shruti, adding that despite the space being mostly male-dominated, women directors like Gauri Shinde and Meghna Gulzar have managed to give a different perspective to the cinema. 

Shruti is currently working on the script of a love story. “I will launch my directorial project during December. I get a kick when I’m directing or producing a film. I will start the project only after I lock the script,” she says.
