Shanvi Srivastava to debut in Malayalam with Mahaveeryar
The film, bankrolled by Pauly Jr Pictures in association with Indian Movie Makers, will see her sharing screen space with Nivin Pauly and Asif Ali
After making a mark in Telugu and Kannada cinema, Shanvi Srivastava is set to make her Malayalam debut with Abrid Shine’s Mahaveeryar. The film, bankrolled by Pauly Jr Pictures in association with Indian Movie Makers, will see her sharing screen space with Nivin Pauly and Asif Ali.
The shooting of Mahaveeryar began today, and Shanvi joined the sets in Rajasthan. Sharing her excitement to be part of her first Malayalam film, the Avane Srimannarayana actor says, “I always wait for an opportunity to prove my mettle. Everyone looks up to the Malayalam industry for the content they produce. So, given this opportunity, I didn’t want to miss the chance to be a part of that.”
The actor was approached by the makers and then had a zoom call with them. After a few rounds of discussions and calls, the makers felt she fit the bill and brought her on board.
Although unwilling to reveal too much about her character, Shanvi tells us that she is playing a role much younger than her actual age. “ I play an 18-year-old girl. That’s all I can divulge at the moment,” she says.
On the Kannada front, Shanvi has completed shooting for Trishulam, Dinesh Baboo’s Kasthuri Mahal, and has signed a gangster drama titled Bang.
