Action queen returns with a new role

Sep 28, 2013, DHNS:
tough Malashree

Actors and actresses starring in movies named after them has become common in the Kannada film industry. And joining the bandwagon is Malashree. The actress, who has been on a signing spree, has recently taken up a film titled Malashree. The films is directed by Ayappa P Sharma, who has also directed the actress in Veera.

Having launched recently, the movie sheds light on how the intelligence wing works at different levels. Actor Mukhesh Khanna will also be seen in it along with other actors like Ravishankar, Sadhu Kokila, Bullet Prakash and Rangayana Raghu. Thriller Manju will choreograph the stunts in the film and Rajesh Katta is the cinematographer. The movie is produced by Kavitha, Belligangadhar and Pallaki Radhakrishna. Arjun Janya will compose the tunes for the film.

Meanwhile, Malashree is also working on a movie called ‘Boys’, directed by Shankar Gowda. Generally known for her tough roles, the actress will once again be seen in a tough cop role — but this time, it is with a different twist, says the actress. Malashree, who confesses to being bored of playing a cop, says, “When Shankar approached me and said I’d have to play a cop, I was reluctant as I was looking for different roles. But when he explained more about the character and narrated the script, I fell in love with it. Shankar has worked really hard on the characterisation and that passion comes across in the script.” So, what’s so different about this role? “Though I play a cop and have action sequences, there’s a humorous shade to my character. Every scene has elements of comedy, which is an enjoyable experience for me and will be for audiences too,” she adds. Malashree is also known to be particular about doing films that are socially-relevant and have thought-provoking messages. And ‘Boys’, she says, has a beautiful message.
