There are times when actors choose roles and other times, roles choose the actors. Only that actor could bring a character to life.
In KM Chaitanya’s next, which has been temporarily titled as Amma, I Love You, the role required the young talent Ishan. The film, made under Dwarakish Pictures, has been inspired by the Tamil hit Pichaikkaran directed by Sasi.
Ishan, after Rogue chose this as his second film mainly for the character, played in Tamil by Vijay Antony, and for the story that brings to life a mother-son bond. We now hear that the team has found its heroine in Shanvi Srivastava. They have finalised this though an official announcement is yet to be mwwade, and this will be done from the production’s end before they go on floors from October.
Shanvi will be romancing Ishan’s character, who also runs a pizza parlour, in Amma... “The production house had thought of many actresses, who would pair well with Ishan, and they decided on Shanvi knowing that she can carry the role,” says our source.
