It may not for the masala-movie consumer, but Kannada film Lucia continues to go places. To be remade in three languages, the shooting for the Tamil version took off a couple of days ago with Siddharth playing the lead. Interestingly, Sandalwood’s very own Deepa Sannidhi has been roped in to play the heroine, and with this film the actress marks her entry into Kollywood.
“I am open to any kind of film. I have watched Lucia in Kannada and felt that it was a fantastic movie. What caught my attention was the film’s offbeat nature. I am here to do anything that is entertaining. I am not off commercial films but I want to play different characters,” says Deepa who is currently on the sets of the film and is enjoying playing the dual shades to her character in it.
On acting opposite Siddharth, Deepa says that she couldn’t have asked for more. “He is meticulous and an intelligent person. It is a pleasure to work with a good actor. Though it has been just a couple of days on the sets, I am getting familiar with the people and will, hopefully, learn a lot from the actor,” she says. As for Sandalwood, Deepa was last seen in Sakkare and she has completed shooting for Endendigu Ninnagi, a remake of the Tamil film Engiyum Epodum. Unfortunately her film Love Churmuri has been shelved for now. “I will soon be part of a remake film in Kannada, which I will work on simultaneously,” she says.
