After her debut in 2019 with Dorasani, Shivathmika Rajashekar is now geared up for her next film. The yet-to-be-titled film will be directed by debutant Harsha Pulipaka. We hear that the actress is paired opposite Rahul Vjay in the breezy entertainer.
Talking about casting Shivathmika, Harsha first tells us that it was based on the suggestion by producer Srujan Yarabolu. Then he adds, “I’ve been looking for performers who can speak Telugu fluently. I’ve seen Dorasani and loved Shivathmika’s grace in the film. I felt she’s a natural talent.”
The director also tells us that the actress was excited when she heard the script. “The best part was that she was game to even undergo a major transformation for her part. I think that’s a hallmark of a professional,” says Harsha, adding that they had workshops regarding the role, script-reading sessions and subsequently look tests.
About Shivathmika’s role in the film, the director reveals that she plays a matured woman with a lot of clarity. “She plays a software engineer who picks up fashion designing as a hobby,” the director says.
