Several filmmakers have been trying their luck to introduce the popular ‘wink girl’, Priya Prakash Varrier of the Oru Adaar Love-fame to Kannada film industry. Among them is debutant director Raghu Kovi. Having worked as a co-director to filmmakers like Upendra, Shashank, and Prem, he is now set to go independent with a feature film. This project is produced by BS Sudhindra and E Shivaprakash, who earlier produced the Shivarajkumar-starrer Killing Veerappan

The director and producer are collaborating on two films. Since this is a love story, the makers have first approached Priya Varrier to play the female lead, even before finalising the hero. The director met the actor at her house in Thrissur on Sunday to narrate the story to her, and she is said to have shown interest in the project. 

Whether the team will succeed in bringing Priya Varrier to Sandalwood is something that will be known in the coming days. Meanwhile, the production house has brought Arjun Janya on board as music composer and Satya Hegde as the cinematographer for the project that is expected to go on floors in August. They are mulling over whether to sign up an upcoming hero or pick someone among the star’s sons who are either to be launched or have done one or two films.
