Director Ravi Ram says helming his latest venture, 'Raja Simha', with actors Ambareesh, Anirudh and Dr Bharathi Vishnuvardhan in the lead was indeed a memorable journey.
The film, which is a sequel to the earlier Vishnuvardhan-starrer, 'Simhadriya Simha', is a commercial entertainer that captures the journey of a mother and son, who are involved in social work.
"Anirudh plays the character of a young man who runs an NGO and his mother (played by Dr Bharathi Vishnuvardhan) supports him in his work. There's a twist in the tale when Anirudh falls in love with a girl and follows her to her village in an effort to win over her love. The story takes a dramatic turn there. I can't reveal more details because I will then be giving out the story," says Ravi.
Ravi says that every actor in the film has played their part to perfection. "The actors infused life into the characters. Ambareesh has portrayed the role of a powerful man in a village very well. The grandeur of the character has been brought out very well by him. Bharathi has effectively portrayed the role of a mother. Her belief in doing good for the less fortunate and commitment to alleviating the position of the poor is something to watch out for. Anirudh has played his part exceptionally well," adds Ravi.
About the challenges faced during the making of the film, Ravi, says that he was apprehensive if he would be able to pull of such an important film.
"Anirudh was with me at every step. We would discuss every scene and that helped take the film forward without a hitch. It was an amazing experience to shoot with such popular actors," he signs off.
