With Sandalwood exhibiting its creative aspirations and a keen focus on details, the scope for varied character portrayals have set off a demand for specific actresses who can meet the expectations of the hero-worshipping fans, especially those films with top stars.
So, when the makers of Darshan-starrer Chakravarthy created a buzz with the posters, it became clear that the heroine had to be somebody who can pull off a homely character with ease while managing to keep the expectations of his fans.
After much thought and scouting for over two months, the makers have finally zeroed in on South Indian actress, Anjali. “We were looking for an actress who can carry a traditional homely image. We found Anjali apt in every way,” says Chintan, the director of the film.
According to him, though the film is based on an underworld subject, he was particular that a family-like chemistry should work between the hero and heroine. “Going by the characters, Anjali has been playing in her films, we are confident that she will justify the role. It was not an individual decision of mine but more of a unanimous choice by the entire team of Chakravarthy,” says the director
Meanwhile, the process is on to finalise the rest of the star cast. “Our project will start once Darshan is completely done with his current project Jaggu Dada. As per plan, we might either start by April end on May 1st week,” he says.
For Anjali, Chakravarthy will be her third film in Kannada. The actress, who started with Honganasu in 2008, later worked in Rana Vikrama.
