MG Srinivas to headline upcoming horror-comedy, Andalama
The film will be directed by Nuthan Umesh of Krishnan Marriage Story-fame
Actor-director MG Srinivas has signed up a new film just ahead of completing his upcoming family entertainer Old Monk. The project was announced on July 9 to mark the occasion of Srinivas' birthday.
Titled Andalama, the film is billed as a horror-comedy. Srini will be teaming up with director Nuthan Umesh of Krishnan Marriage Story-fame for the upcoming film.
“The story of the film is about a ghost trapped inside an antique water pot. The pot ends up in my character’s home. What happens later makes for the crux of the story,” says Srini.
Andalama is expected to go on floors in September, and the makers aim to capture the true essence of Karnataka with the film as the script pans across the several landscapes of the state.
Meanwhile, Srini is excited about his previous outing Birbal getting remade in Tamil and Telugu, and he is looking forward to its releases. “I am working on the Hindi remake of Birbal as well,” he says.
