Director Pavan Wadeyar ropes in Sarath Kumar for Ishan’s Raymo
The Tamil actor will be seen as the dad of Ishan's character in the film
Tamil actor Sarath Kumar, who made his Kannada debut with Sarathi, has now become a popular face in the industry. The actor, who played father to Puneeth Rajkumar in the blockbuster Raajakumara, is back to play a similar role in Pavan Wadeyar’s Raymo.
“Our film will see him as Sri Deshpande, the richest man in Karnataka. He plays the role of a strict father to Ishan. His character will bring in suspense to the romantic drama,” says Pavan, who also shared the senior actor’s look in the film.
Ashika Ranganath plays the female lead in Raymo that has been shot in parts of Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Sirsi, and Yellapura. Sarath Kumar, who is currently shooting in Bengaluru, has 10 days of shooting left. The team will later be heading to Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, and South Africa, where major portions of the film will be shot.
Raymo, produced by CR Manohar, has music by Arjun Janya and cinematography by S Vaidy.
