Vismaya all set to make her directorial debut
The yet-to-be-titled movie will be a love story starring former Bigg Boss contestant Kishen Bilagali and Saathvika
Vismaya will soon be joining the league of women filmmakers in Kannada cinema. She is all set to fulfil her directorial passion and will make an official announcement about her debut project on January 21. She is excited as the film will be launched by Kichcha Sudeep.
The yet-to-be-titled movie will be a love story starring former Bigg Boss contestant Kishen Bilagali and Saathvika, who was earlier known as Shravya Rao. The romantic drama will also have cricketer Praveen making his acting debut. A professional cricketer for 15 years, Praveen has played for Karnataka in the under-19 team and has also participated in KPL.
Thrilled to be foraying into filmmaking, Vismaya says though she is a mechanical engineer, directing has always been her dream. “I am finally getting to fulfil my dream with this project. I have also written the story screenplay and dialogues for it along with Raju Vaividhya.”
Without any previous experience in filmmaking or working under a director, she claims to have learnt the craft all by herself. Vismaya took over a year to write the script, which is based on her own experiences and observations. “This is a pure love story for today’s generation and it comes with a social message. We plan to reveal the title on Valentine’s Day,” she says.
Vismaya, who is also producing the film, plans to begin the shoot in February in Mysuru and Coorg, with an aim to release it within this year.
