Pranitha takes the action route
The actor will be a part of several stunt sequences in the action-drama Bheema Theeradali
last outing in S a n d a lwo o d , Jarasandha, opposite Duniya Vijay,
might not have raked in the moolah at the box office, but Pranitha is
pinning high hopes on her second venture with the actor. Bheema
Theeradali, hits screens today and will see the pair coming together
once more on screen. The film, which is based on the life of Chandappa
alias Chandya, who fought for the welfare of the people in Almella, a
small village in North Karnataka, has Vijay essaying the role of Chandya
and Pranitha playing his love interest.
Speaking about her
experience in the film, Pranitha says, "My character is glamorous in the
first half of the movie, but she transforms into a village
belle towards the end of it. The role is very different from the
characters I have played so far. We managed to find many clues about
Vijay's character in books and newspapers, but we couldn't find any for
mine. I had to rely on my director completely."
Theeradali was shot in the forests and remote locations of Karnataka.
Since the film is an action-drama, Pranitha had to hone her action
skills too. "I had scenes in which I had to jump on to a running horse wearing a sari. It was quite thrilling," she says.
actor has now signed her next Kannada project opposite Golden Star
Ganesh and is looking forward to experimenting with new roles. Pranitha
has also nearly wrapped up the shoot of her Tamil film Saguni, in which
she is paired opposite Karthi. Prasad of Sammarth Ventures, who has
taken the distribution rights for Bheema Theeradali, is all set to take
the risk of releasing the film in the middle of the IPL hungama. "If the
match is good, people will sit in front of the TV and catch the action.
Similarly, if the movie is good, people will go to theatres to watch
it. Since IPL matches start only in the evening, I don't think it will
majorly affect the moviegoing audience," says Prasad.
