Infosys Chief Mentor NR Narayana Murthy's wife Sudha Murthy, who
has earlier acted in a television serial, is now making her debut
in Kannada films. She has already given her consent to act in
director Sadashiva Shenoy's debut venture Prarthane, which
features Ananth Nag, Sudharani, Pavithra Lokesh and Prakash Raj in
Sudha is all excited about her role in the movie
Prarthane. "I enjoy music and watching films very much. At
this age, I did not have the ambition to act in films. I told him
(Shenoy) to give a role where I don't have do make-up," the PTI
quotes Sudha Murthy as saying.
The film Prarthane, which is produced by Harish,
revolves around the need to preserve Kannada culture and language.
Ramachandra Ithal is behind camera and Veer Samarath has composed
music for the film. According to Shenoy, the scenes involving Sudha
would be shot this month.
Sudha has written many stories, which deal with common lives and
her views on donations, hospitality and realisation. Her
collections of stories are 'Mahashweta' (Kannada and English),
'Wise and Otherwise', 'Dollar Bahu' (English) and 'Paridhi'
(Kannada). Her Kannada book 'Dollar Sose', which was later
translated to English as 'Dollar Bahu', was adopted as a television
serial in 2001.
