Mangaluru, Jan 5: Actress Varsha Acharya is all set to play a key role in Hariprasad Jayanna’s directorial 'Padavipoorva'. She is also set to design costumes for the film.
The movie is produced by Yograj Bhat Cinemas and Ravi Shamanur Films. The director of photography is Santhosh Rai Pathaje.
Varsha Acharya, who made her debut on silver screen through ‘Hombanna’ three years ago, is now back with Padavipoorva.
Varsha Acharya hails from Kodagu, has done her pre-university at Canara College and fashion designing at Karavali College. Varsha is the daughter of Venkataramana Acharya and Vidyalatha Acharya and has a sibling Vrushab Acharya. Varsha was titled ‘Princess of Malnad’ in a beauty pageant in 2016.
During her fashion designing course at Karavali College, Varsha used to do lot of shoots, designing where the opportunity popped out for Varsha through Hombanna which was an artistic movie.
Speaking to Daijiworld, Varsha Acharya said, “I was not looking only for a glamorous movie, instead I was looking for a content oriented movie. The character in ‘Hombanna’ was completely a challenging role, and it was also a de-glamor village story which secured awards for the movie.
“I was approached for ‘Padavipoorva’ for the remarkable key role. And apart from acting, I am also the costume designer for the film.
“I was convinced with the film’s storyline. It was interesting and I would definitely not miss such opportunity. The role that they have given me is going to be remarkable. The movie is a college story. The music is composed by Arjun Janya. I am still looking for more challenging roles. While everyone wants to do glamorous movies, I choose my first project with content oriented de-glamorous role. The reason behind choosing such role is that I wanted to go into more depth in acting by doing such characters,” she said.
Speaking on her other projects, Varsha Acharya said, “Two projects with two production houses are on the cards. I am looking forward for more content oriented projects.”
