Rachita Ram to headline Lilly
Director Vijay S Gowda has confirmed that the actor is on board the woman-centric film
Rachita Ram will be the face of Lilly, confirms director Vijay S Gowda, who is all set to make his debut with the psychological mystery thriller. The makers were keen to cast the Bulbul heroine to play the titular role, and have succeeded in bringing her on board.
Lilly is being jointly produced by Nagaraj and Subramani under the banners Raj’s Films and Boun Films. According to Vijay, who has also written the film, Rachita was impressed with the film’s title, which she said was catchy, and she gave the go ahead after listening to the narration.
“She also felt that the subject, which throws light on the social issues related to the young generation and the topics of child negligence and the effect of technology on kids, has never been attempted before,” says the director.
Rachita plays Dr Maahi, an NRI psychologist in the film. This will be her first woman-centric film.
Meanwhile, the makers have finalised the shooting locations and art director Sathish is creating a set for Lilly.
Rachita, who is now looking forward to the release of 100, has a couple of songs to shoot for Prem’s Ek Love Ya. The actor also has Prajwal Devaraj-starrer Veeram, besides Daali with Dhananjay, April, and a Telugu project lined up for shooting.
“We are working on the schedule and plan to shoot Lilly at one stretch. Dates are being worked out,” says Vijay.
The technical crew of Lilly includes cinematographer William David of Rangitaranga fame and editor Srikanth Shroff, who has worked in Godhi Banna Sadarana Myakattu and Birbal. The film will have music by debutant Veeresh S Gowda.
