Director Shashank to introduce newcomer Praveen
The director has finalised music director Arjun Janya, and is in the process of finding the female lead
Director Shashank, who is known for introducing fresh faces to the Kannada film industry, is launching yet another new talent. Praveen, a doctor by profession, will be making his debut in Shashank’s next. The director has pushed his project with Upendra, and has shifted his focus on the new film.
“I enjoy working with fresh talents. I experienced it through Moggina Manasu. After that film, I was working mostly with established actors. Once again, a script has demanded me to work with entirely newcomers,” says Shashank.
The director pushed the project with Uppi sensing the rise in Covid cases, and has advanced this project with the newcomer. Shashank says he saw potential in Praveen and chose to launch him. “He’s a doctor who is currently doing his internship. He has a passion for cinema, and is a trained actor.”
Shashank, who is yet to title his film, calls it an intense love story. “This film depicts extreme emotions. It is going to be in my style and very realistic. However, it is not based on any true incident. I am done with the screenplay and I am currently penning the dialogues, which I will plan to complete before the lockdown,” says Shashank.
The director has finalised music director Arjun Janya, and is in the process of finding the female lead. “I am scouting for a fresh face, who is extremely talented and can give a stellar performance,” he says.
