Aditi Prabhudeva to sport a traditional look in MG Srinivas' Old Monk
Both Srinivas and Aditi have previously worked in Dayal Padmanabhan’s directorial, Ranganayaki- Vol 1- Virginity
Actor-director MG Srinivas' upcoming film, Old Monk, will star Aditi Prabhudeva as the female lead. The title refers to ‘old sanyasi’, and the romantic drama, revolving around a typical bachelor, will feature the actor in a traditional, girl-next-door avatar.
Both Srinivas and Aditi have previously worked in Dayal Padmanabhan’s directorial, Ranganayaki- Vol 1- Virginity. However, Aditi will be working under Srinivas’ direction for the first time.
The RJ-turned-director, whose maiden venture was Topiwala starring Upendra, later played a lead role and directed two films, Srinivas Kalyana and Birbal Trilogy: Case No 1, Finding Vajramuni. Old Monk will be his fourth project.
Srinivas is currently working on finalising the rest of the cast, which he is selecting through the various auditions across Karnataka. In all likelihood, the shooting of Old Monk will begin in February.
Aditi will also be seen in Vijayaprasad’s Totapuri, the shooting of which is currently in progress. The Brahmachari heroine has also completed shooting for Champion.
