Sruthi Mahedra, who brought tears in the eyes of those who
watched her in Sirivantha (starring Dr. Vishnuvardhan in
the lead), will be now seen in Avva. Her role is that of
mother to a teenage girl, and in this role, she ekes out a living
by selling milk and lending money.
The movie, directed by Kavitha Lankesh, is based on an episode
from the novel 'Mussanjeya Katha Prasanga' written by his father P.
Lankesh. Vijay plays the male lead and newcomer Sruthi plays the
female lead. In the film, Smrithi is the beautiful daughter of
Anebaddi Rangavva (Sruthi).
The movie also casts Rangayana Raghu and Home Minister M.P.
Prakash. Pyramid Saimira Theatre Ltd. is producing the movie.
