Lankesh"s much-awaited Avva will be released early next year. The
movie, based on an episode from the novel Mussanjeya Katha Prasanga
by P Lankesh, stars Vijay and newcomer Smitha in the lead.
Pyramid Saimira Theatre Ltd produces the film starring Shruthi
Mahendar and Raganyan Raghu in pivotal roles. Home Minister MP
Prakash, who had earlier agreed to play the role of Gowda in the
film, opted out due to his busy schedules and is replaced by
Siddaraj Kalyankar. Madhu Ambat cranks the camera and Issac Thomas
Kottukapally helms the music.
Kavitha Lankesh's earler hit films include Bimba, Deveeri,
Preethi Prema Pranaya and Thananam Thananam. The latest rumours
making rounds about Avva: it includes a kissing scene.
