Sruthi Hariharan seems to be in a happy place right now. The actress who is currently shooting for Prakash Jayaram’s Tarak with Darshan is all excited to get back to Mollywood, where she began her film journey.
According to the latest buzz, she will be joining the cast of Solo, a bilingual film to be made in Malayalam and Tamil, which will also see director Bejoy Nambiar and actor Dulquer Salmaan working together for the first time. Shooting for the film had started last November and Sruthi is the new entrant.
The actress, who did a screen test, will join the sets sometime in mid-March.
Sruthi started her career in the south with a Malaylam film Cinema Company, and later established herself in Kannada and Tamil industries. Ask the actress about the Bejoy-Dulquer film and she can’t contain her glee: “Coming back to this industry after 5 years, I couldn’t have asked for more. The picture looks bigger and better.”
Bejoy Nambiar was always on Sruthi’s wishlist, and another director on it is Rajeev Menon. “Being a ardent fan of director Bejoy, I had watched his film Wazir first day-first show. His body of work is interesting... I don’t know if I should go as a fan or as an actor. But I am certain to be star-struck,” she says.
The actress is equally happy to be working with Dulquer. “He has made his mark with his acting talent,” she says.
Sruthi will start on a short schedule. “It is going to be a new experience, to be working with such a professional team,” she says. “Going by the interactions I have been having with team, I am already kicked about starting shoot,” she says.
