Haripriya in Demand in Kannada Films

0

She might not have tasted a decent box office success in Telugu but the talented and good looking Haripriya is in demand in Kannada films. Last year Vaarahi Vennalave (it means Ravoi Chandamama) starring Dinesh Atthakathi and her was a big hit. Director Shashidharan had this love story narrated differently and Haripriya says she fell for the story instantly. “He is fabulous, it is his first film. The minute he starts explaining the scene, you get excited and want to get into the character soon and easily. He has immense clarity and it is a love story that revolves around a girl Meera, can’t reveal much at this stage. There was lot of emoting more through expressions and eyes than dialogues. It is an extremely strong character and I am pinning hopes on this, only when this releases I will take up other scripts.”

The actor talks about the rest of the projects, she has five major releases in Kannada and one film in Tamil waiting to hit the screen. “Ugram was a big success in Kannada, released in 2014. After that there was no looking back, I signed Ranna (Attharintiki Dharedi), I played Pranita’s role. I am so happy that I got back to back hits. Bullet Bhasya is also a commercial film, Sharan is the hero and is headed for a July release. The songs have become popular here. Ricky has Rakshit Shetty as the hero, he is a director cum actor. This film however has not been directed by him. I have a double role, one as a naxalite and the other a soft one. The Naxalite has been presented not the way you’d see in an art film, it is a commercial love story. I have lost weight for this film and I am maintaining that. Ranatantra is in post production. It is a thriller and a love story, the director Adiram has blended thriller and love very well. Vijay Raghavendra is the hero. Right now I am shooting for Rajadhani 2 (Kannada) with Preetam.”
