Last seen in Daughter of Parvathamma, Hariprriya will soon be donning the greasepaint again. To be directed by Vijay Kiran and bankrolled by Jayanna Productions, the film will go on the floors soon, the actor revealed in an interview with Cinema Express.
Hariprriya said, “This is my second project with Jayanna Productions, which distributed my last film, Bell Bottom. Jayanna is a producer who is particular about the star cast. Secondly, this is a film inspired by the 2014 Tamil film, Kappal.”
Pairing up Hariprriya in this entertainer will be Gurunandan. Sadhu Kokila and Kadipuddi Chandru also form a part of the star cast. On the project, Hariprriya added further, “It is a romcom, and a lot of the comedy scenes have come as forwards, which I used to enjoy watching. So when director Vijay Kiran approached me with the project, I was already familiar with the story and the character. Then, I watched the full film, and found it to be a feel-good movie, which is why I signed on the dotted line.”
The hit film Daughter of Parvathamma had a women-oriented subject in which Hariprriya starred along with Sumalatha Ambareesh. The young actor has her hands busy with Kannada Gothilla which is directed by Mayur Raghavendra and slated to hit the screens later this month; Ellidde Illi Tanaka and Bicchugatti Chapter −1 Dalvayi Dange.
Kappal was a romantic comedy film directed by Karthik G Krish, a former assistant of ace director Shankar. Produced by I Studios Entertainment, the film had Vaibhav and Sonam Bajwa playing the lead pair with Arjunan, Karunakaran, Venkat Sundar, VTV Ganesh, Robo Shankar and Karthik Priyadarshan in supporting roles. The film was released by Shankar’s S Pictures on December 25, 2014 and its Telugu dubbed version was released under the title Pandavulu Okkadu.
Kappal’s technical crew comprised Natarajan Sankaran for music, Dinesh Krishnan for cinematography and Anthony for editing. Released on a budget of Rs 2 crore, the film collected Rs 12 crore at the box-office.
