The TV host and actress is the lead of filmmaker Lohith H’s debut production venture, an as-yet-untitled film to be helmed by his associate, Prabhakaran.
Anushree is one of the most popular Kannada television and live event hosts who has also dabbled with acting. Although she’s been in films like Ringmaster, Benkipatna and Uppu Huli Khara, Anushree has not had a film in four years. While she has been busy with other commitments, especially for the small screen, she is now looking at ending the drought as far as films go.
Anushree, we hear, has been signed up for a film to be produced by Mummy-Save Me and Devaki director Lohith H. The as-yet-untitled project will be the first venture for Lohith H Productions, the banner that was officially launched on New Year’s. “Have started this production house with the notion of giving wings to the talents who dreams big like me which in turn helps us to provide world-class content to our very passionate audience. Last but not the least wish you all a wonderful new year. May the New Year bless everyone with health, prosperity and happiness,” Lohith had said in a message to announce the launch of his production house.
With the film, Lohith will also launch a new director, Prabhakaran, who had assisted him on both Mummy and Devaki. According to the team, Anushree will play the lead in the film, which is said to be a hardcore horror drama about the concept of devil worship, as is seen in the western world, and is, reportedly, based on real-life incidents. The team recently had a script pooja to officially launch the film and are set to go on set shortly in Goa, provided the pandemic situation improves in the coming days. In the meantime, they are also looking at announcing the title soon.
Speaking to an English daily, Anushree was quoted as saying that her four- year absence from film was more to do with a lack of quality subjects and not offers. A self-confessed fan of Lohith’s style of filmmaking in both Mummy and Devaki, Anushree is thrilled to be a part of his debut production, which she says is quite a thrilling subject.
