After making her Tollywood debut with Sapthagiri LLB, Mumbai-based model-turned-actress Kashish Vohra has signed her next film. The Delhi-born will be seen as the leading lady in the Telugu remake of super hit Kannada film 1st Rank Raju.
Talking about the project, Kashish says, “The film is a romantic comedy set against a campus backdrop and explores the importance of academic qualifications in life. It is very contemporary and people will be able to easily connect to the plot, just like how it became a superhit in Kannada.”
Kashish will play a college-goer in the film. “I played a village belle in my debut, and a college-goer in this one. I got nostalgic while shooting for the campus episodes. I was able to relive my college days, and shooting for the film was all fun; there was always laughter on the sets.”
The actress adds, “I am also improving my language (Telugu). I’m getting the dialogues in advance so that I can understand the meaning and express myself better. My team is also helping me out with the lines. The Telugu film industry has been very welcoming and I am getting a warm reception.”
Naresh Kumar, who directed the original, is also directing the Telugu version, which will be presented by Maruthi....
