In her 10 years in the Kannada film industry, the first time that Rachita Ram encountered a director and cinematographer who did not use a mike to communicate with cast and crew on set, was when she was working on Kranti. Composer-director V Harikrishna, with whom she has worked for the first time ever, was the most calm, composed and quiet person on set, followed by DOP Karunakar, she reckons. “I have never seen a set like this in my career, where the director does not make a lot of noise. On the set of Kranti, I think I was the loudest, along with producer Shylaja Nag ma’am. Often, you’d not even know that Hari sir is on set and then, suddenly, he’d be near you, whispering what is required in the next shot into your ear,” she said.


Kranti, which reunites Rachita with her first hero, Darshan, is a film that gives her a lot of joy to talk about. “We were like one happy family on set, including the cast and crew and that positivity, I believe, reflects in our trailer and the songs that have been released so far. I have been given a very good role in this film and I am joined by the likes of Samyukta Hornad, Girija Lokesh amma, etc. It was really nice working with everyone. I would like to thank Shylaja, B Suresha and Hari sir for giving me this opportunity and reuniting me with Darshan sir after nearly six years,” she said.
