Rachita Ram is currently one of the busiest heroines in Sandalwood, thanks to a handful of good projects in her kitty. There were reports of her association with Rishi for a project, jointly produced by Yogaraj Bhat and Shashank, but she has already signed another film.

However, the news of it has come to light only now. Rachita will be paired opposite Prajwal Devaraj in Veeram, a film that marks the directorial debut of Khadar Kumar. The film is made under the banner of Disha entertainments, who made their debut venture with D/o of Parvathamma. 

Produced by Shashidhara KM and Raghu Singam, the makers of this film manage to bring a fresh pairing with  Prajwal and Rachita sharing screen space for the first time.
