Nidhi Subbaiah set to star in her first horror film
Nidhi is excited to be a part of the film that will mark the directorial debut of directors Pavan and Prasad; it will be the second project bankrolled by Lohith H’s Friday Films
Lohith H is set to present a horror film starring Nidhi Subbaiah. The project will mark the directorial debut of Pavan and Prasad. This is the second project bankrolled by Lohith's Friday Films after Life is Beautiful.
This project will mark the Pancharangi heroine's first attempt at a horror film. “Watching a thriller or a horror film has been my daily dose of entertainment, and now I will be getting to explore one such subject,” she says, adding, “The fear of the unknown thrills me and keeps me curious to know what’s next. It’s something I am looking forward to being a part of. What compounds the thrill is that I have two filmmakers directing me, and I am getting working with the production house for the first time. This makes it all the more interesting.”
Nidhi, who has mostly worked in Kannada and Hindi projects, was last seen in Shivarajkumar’s Ayushman Bhava, in which she made a guest appearance. While the pandemic was one of the reasons for her to take things slow, the actor has also been selective about her projects. “Post Pancharangi, I had directors coming in with similar bubbly roles, which I felt would be monotonous. I might as well be in a 9-to-5 job rather than doing the same role over and over again. I waited for a good film to come my way. A good subject excites me to go to the sets,” says Nidhi, who is planning to start the shooting from mid-January. “The producers plan to shoot the film at one stretch,” she adds.
This project will be made in association with Silver Train international and CK Cine Creations, and produced by Kishore Narasimhaiah, Biji Arun, and Chethan Krishanappa.
