It will be an acid test for Rishika Singh on whom much hopes are pinned. Rishika who is the daughter of well-known director S.V. Rajendra Singh Babu and younger sister of actor Audithya is now biting her nails to see how the audience react to her first venture “Kanteerava” in which she is paired with Vijay. The film is releasing today. Though she is one of the two heroines in the film, it is Risihika who is garnering more publicity than Shubha Poonja, the other heroine in the film. Rishika has been part of many promotional programmes of the film. “I am really hoping for some good tidings through this film. I enjoyed working in it. It was a big blast on the sets during the shoot of the film,” says Rishika.
Bangalore-based Praneetha makes a comeback to Kannada through the film “Jarasandha” directed by Shashank. Praneetha will be paired with Vijay in this film which will be launched on January 28 in Bengaluru. Shashank who has delivered three big hits in succession, has for the first time written an action-based story for this film. He will be directing a big star for the first time. Praneetha had made her debut through the Darshan starrer Kannada film “Porki”.
Aindrita might have lost out an opportunity to work in a new film “Jarasandha” to be directed by Shashank, but her spirits has not soured. She remains confident as ever and is looking forward for a good break from her two forthcoming films. Already her last year's release “Veera Parampare” has given success. She will start working for her new film with her “Mansaare” hero Diganth from January 24 in Mysore. This film is the remake of Tamil Hit “Boss Engira Bhaskaran” and Aindrita says she is quite excited with her role. She has lot of hopes on two of her forthcoming films “Manasina Maathu” and “Dhool” also.
Though Aindrita did not make it to the audio release function of “Dhool” she says “Dhool will be more than a Paisa Vasool film and I am sure Yogi is going to rock through this film,” adds Aindrita.
Over the top
The success of Hatrick Hero Shivaraj Kumar's “Mylaari” directed by R. Chandru has given a big boost to the career of several people who had worked for the film. For Shivaraj Kumar himself, the success has come at a time when his 100th film “Jogayya” directed by Prem was to hit screens on April 24.
Another person who has benefited largely from the huge response to the film is none other than director R. Chandru who has now been asked to write a new script for Shivaraj Kumar by none other than his wife Geetha who is now fully involved in the career of her husband. Not to forget the film's music director Guru Kiran who has been off colour for some time has bounced back with vengeance through some terrific compositions for the film.
