Pruthvi Ambaar onboard Sugarless
An official announcement was made by producer-turned-director, Shashidhar KM, on the actor's birthday today
Pruthvi Ambaar of Dia fame is set to play the lead in Sugarless, which will mark the directorial debut of producer-turned-director Shashidhar KM. With a script penned by director Shashidhar, the film will follow a story about youngsters with diabetes. Pruthvi will portray the role of a happy-go-lucky person who is always seen enjoying life.
An official announcement was made on the actor's birthday today. The project will be jointly produced by Pushkar Films and Disha Entertainers. Sugarless will have Anup Seelin scoring music and DOP Lavish will handle the cinematography.
Actor Dharmanna Kadur will also be seen along with Pruthvi playing the character of a friend. The team is still in the process of finalising the rest of the cast and plans to start work from September.
Pruthvi, who is looking forward to being part of unique subjects, has signed three projects during the lockdown. He is currently busy penning the script for a film to be directed by Darshan Apoorva, which will also star Kushi. Besides this, the actor is also on board For Regn, set to be helmed by Naveen Dwaraknath. This apart, he is in discussions for three more projects, which are in the finalisation stages, he reveals.
The in-demand actor says he is equally happy that he has not been typecast. "After Dia, I was offered similar roles as a romantic hero, which I humbly kept rejecting to make sure I explore different shades. As a result, the next five films will feature me in different roles and something fresh. Sugarless is one such subject," he says.
