The directorial debut of Shriram and Lakshman, the film is currently being shot in Shivamogga
Vasishta N Simha has been spending a lot of time in Hyderabad for his film projects there, be it Narappa, Odella Railway Station, Nayeem Diaries or the upcoming Simmba. The actor, we hear, is back now, and currently shooting in Shivamogga for his film Talvarpete.
“Talvarpete is a film that we’d started before the pandemic, and was initially delayed because I was injured on set a few times, as there are some heavy action sequences, but then eventually lockdown happened. Later, when shooting of movies resumed, I got busy with some other projects and was not sporting the same look required for continuity. Now we are back on track and are looking at shooting till the end of the month at least, which will make up for about 75-80% of the film,” says Vasishta.
While it has been previously reported that Talvarpete is a rural underworld/rowdyism based film, Vasishta says that’s not the case, adding that it is a raw love story, in which he is paired with Sonal Monteiro. In fact, the official description of the film on social media is ‘An emotional love which blooms between an innocent girl and tough protagonist’. The film is the directorial debut of brother duo K Lakshman and Shriram and will have music by Charanraj. P Ravi Shankar plays a pivotal role in the film as Serial Set Chandrappa.
In Kannada, Vasishta also has Kalachakra and Pantha, beside roles in Head Bush and KGF: Chapter 2 and the Evaru remake. The actor is also playing the lead opposite Yasha Shivakumar in Dantakathe. The actor was last seen in the 2020 release Mayabazar 2016, produced by the late Puneeth Rajkumar. Subsequently, his Telugu film Narappa had a straight-to-OTT release, Odella Railway Station is up for release, while Nayeem Diaries came out in theatres, but screenings were soon halted after activists obtained a stay order against the movie that chronicles the life and times of slain Naxalite Mohammed Nayeemuddin.
