The shooting of Nagarjuna’s King is going great guns in Hyderabad. This is the first time Trisha is acting with Nag. Directed by Srinu Vaitla, the movie has been scripted with the Yuvasamrat in mind.
The shooting is going on so briskly that the entire unit will be hard at work on Monday, Diwali day, in Bangalore, while the rest of South Indian filmdom will be feasting on sweets and bursting firecrackers to their hearts’ content.
Trisha, whose Tamil release Abhiyum Naanum from Prakashraj’s production house Duet Movies is almost ready for release, is also busy with Sarvam directed by Vishnuvardhan, and Chennaiyil Oru Mazhaikalam by Gautham Menon. Her recent portfolio of movies has undergone quite a change from the usual masala entertainers; she has started to choose movies that are as much entertainer as food for thought. Her roles in these movies have a realistic touch and are rooted in everyday life, according to Trisha.
On her experience with Abhiyum Naanum, Trisha said, “A different film, it talks about the bond between father and daughter. I have worked with Prakashraj in several movies and we share a good rapport on screen. Radha Mohan’s endeavour is an engrossing tale, far away from commercial cinema.”
On her other films, she says, “Vishnuvardhan and his team of sophisticated technicians are working round-the-clock for Sarvam. Working in Chennaiyil Oru Maazhaikalam under Goutham is a great learning experience.”
But any questions on her role in Kamal Haasan’s Marmayogi, brings no responses except to say that it isn’t appropriate for her to talk about it.
