Shreyas Manju-Priya Prakash Varrier's Vishnu Priya to be set in the 90s
Priya is making her Kannada debut with the film, which is written by Sindhu Sri, and directed by VK Prakash
Director VK Prakash's Vishnu Priya, based on a real-life incident, will be set in the 1990s. The filmmaker is leaving no stone unturned to ensure the film's authenticity. Right from the looks and costumes of the leads — Shreyas Manju and Priya Prakash Varrier — to the shooting atmosphere, everything seems to bear the stamp of that period.
Priya is making her Kannada debut with the film, which is written by Sindhu Sri. About 45 per cent of the film’s shoot has been completed in Chikamangalur, Moodigere, and in the interior parts of Belur.
“Though there have been some changes for cinematic purpose, the primary issue is something took place in the early 1990s. We have taken a lot of references to design the costumes, hairstyle and even the body language to match the trends of that time,” says Shreyas, who will be resuming the next schedule of shooting in Bengaluru at the end of October.
“The team is looking for colleges and streets that will go with the theme of the ‘90s, after which we will start the shooting,” he adds.
The film is bankrolled by K Manju, and Gopi Sundar is scoring the music.
