Aditi Prabhudeva begins shooting for Mafia

A month after Mafia was officially launched, newly-engaged Aditi Prabhudeva joins the set of the Prajwal Devaraj film directed by Lohith H. Prajwal has been shooting for the film, in which he plays a cop, in Bengaluru and is now joined by Aditi, who is a journalist called Shruthi in this tale that revolves around human trafficking. Lohith shared an image of the actress in character clutching on to a ‘Press’ ID to announce that she’s begun shooting for Mafia. This comes only days after news broke that Aditi had gotten engaged to businessman and coffee planter Yashas in an intimate ceremony over the Christmas weekend.

Aditi, who is committed to multiple projects right now, was at the movie’s muhurtha in earlhy December, and spoke about being a part of the Prajwal film. “It’s encouraging when a film team approaches you with a novel character and reinforces that you can handle it. I am grateful to every filmmaker who has placed his faith in me to play a character in their films. Mafia is special to me because this is my first film with Lohith and Prajwal and the first time that I am playing an investigative journalist. The idea is to present myself differently, in my wardrobe as a journalist, spoken and body language, among other things, and I am looking forward to preparing myself for this role. I am hopeful that audiences will like this character. Journalism is something that I was drawn to even during my days as an engineering student and had even worked with a media house for a couple of months before getting into showbiz. I believe that this interest in the field will help me do justice to the character,” she says.

The actress adds that what drew her to the film, like many of her other projects, is that the heroine’s role is not limited to a glam prop. “In a lot of commercial films, heroines have blink-and-miss roles. I have been fortunate to get roles that allow me enough screen space as an artiste to showcase my talent,” she signed off.
