Srinidhi Shetty is all excited about the release of her upcoming film KGF. She will be seen playing the lead opposite Yash. It is her debut venture and she has every reason to be thrilled and excited as the film will be hitting the screens in five languages – Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi. Well, that equals to her debut in five languages and what an achievement on her first film!

In a recent interview to Cinema Express, Srinidhi said, “It’s yet to sink in. For a debutante, KGF is equivalent to five films, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Prashanth was clear that they wanted a Kannada girl, which worked to my advantage.” On her role in the film, she pointed out, “The first part will just introduce me. Along with me, there are a couple of other characters who have lot of depth in part 2.”

Recalling her experience on the first day of the shoot, she said, “My first day of shoot was not inside the studio, but on an open street in Mysuru, with Yash. And owing to his popularity, thousands of people had come to see him. And it was a night shoot, which required me to wear short clothing. I was freezing. I simply blanked out on the first couple of lines.”

KGF is directed by Prashanth Neel, who has also written the story, screenplay and dialogues. Vijay Kiragandur is bankrolling the project under his banner Hombale Films. The technical team comprises music director Ravi Basrur, cinematographer Bhuvan Gowda and art director Shivakumar. The rest of the star cast includes Achyuth Kumar, Nassar, Malavika Avinash, Anant Nag and Vasishta N Simha. The film is narrated by Anant Nag.

According to trade reports, the film is likely to be out in 1,800 to 2,000 screens in all the five languages put together across India. The film will release on December 20 in the US and Canada, and on December 21 in India.
