Will Rachita Ram be the face of Lilly?
Lilly is said to be a psychological mystery thriller made under the banner of Raj’s Films and Bourn Films
Lilly's director Vijay S Gowda has generated a lot of curiosity with the concept-based poster of the upcoming film. The debutant, who has earlier worked in the animation field, has taken one-and-a-half years to complete its story, screenplay, and script. Lilly is said to be a psychological mystery thriller made under the banner of Raj’s Films and Bourn Films.
The latest buzz is that the makers are keen to cast Rachita Ram in the titular role, and the director is believed to have approached her. “The subject is about the social issues related to the young generation, such as child negligence, and how technology is affecting kids today. After much thought, the makers felt that Rachita is the perfect fit, and want her on board,” a source told Cinema Express. The team of Lilly is, however, yet to get a green signal from her.
Rachita, one of the most sought-after actors in Kannada cinema, currently has a handful of interesting projects in the pipeline, such as 100, directed by Ramesh Aravind, and Prem’s Ek Love Ya. She has completed shooting for both these projects. She has also confirmed Daali with Dhananjay, Prajwal Devaraj-starrer Veeram, and a female-centric film titled April.
Lilly is produced by Nagaraj and Subramani, and the production house has signed up William David of Rangitaranga fame as the cinematographer and Srikanth Shroff as the editor. It will mark the debut of music director Veeresh Gowda.
The team, which is planning to make an official announcement in February, is currently conducting auditions for the rest of the cast.
