If it weren’t for the pandemic, Vedhika would have had a release in Kannada in 2020/21 with the Upendra-starrer Home Minister. But with the pandemic playing truant, there’s still no clarity on when it will finally have its date with audiences. In the meantime, the actress has signed up for a new project in Sandalwood. This time around, she will team up with Prajwal Devaraj for his next, Gana.


Directed by Hari Prasad Jakka, Gana is an action thriller that Prajwal is likely to start in February, as he is currently shooting for the Lohith H directorial Mafia. Vedhika, meanwhile, will begin shooting for her portions only in early March, as she is currently busy with some of her earlier commitments. Speaking to us from Mumbai, Vedhika talks to us about all her upcoming projects.


“I had spent most of the first wave lockdowns in Bengaluru and once I was confident enough to resume work, I began shooting for a Malayalam love story by director RS Vimal, whose Ennu Ninte Moideen is a personal favourite. The film has an ensemble cast, wherein I am paired with Vijay Babu. I followed that up with the Tamil-Telugu bilingual horror drama Jungle with Aadi Sai Kumar and a cameo in Nagarjuna sir’s Bangarraju. It was great working with Nagarjuna sir; he’s a thorough gentleman. I am now looking at starting work on my new Kannada film,” she says.


While she is contract-bound to not divulge details about Gana or her role in it, Vedhika tells us, “The story of Gana is quite unique with an interesting plot. It is definitely not the run-of-the-mill kind of commercial drama with a routine love story. I am quite excited about being a part of the film,” says the actress, adding that she is in talks for another Malayalam film and one in Telugu, which should be confirmed in a month or so.
