Shruthi Hariharan, who came to light with Sandalwood's critically acclaimed movie Lucia, has become a busy bee in Sandalwood. After playing an important role in Raate and Dyaavre, Shruthi has signed Jacob Vargeshese's Savaari 2.
Savaari 2 is the sequel of Savaari, which was released in 2009. It had Diamond star Srinagar Kitty, Raghu Mukherjee and Kamalini Mukherjee in the lead casts. Shruthi Hariharan will be romancing Kitty in the sequel.
The actress, who confirmed the news to leading daily, said, "I got a call for a Tamil movie, but the project got delayed. In the meanwhile, Jacob narrated Savaari 2 script to me. I didn't want to miss the opportunity to work with a talented director like him, so I readily agreed."
Shruthi, who has already started with shooting of Savaari 2, has said that lead actor Srinagara Kitty is down-to-earth on the sets. She said, "When I came to know that I was going to be paired opposite Kitty, I was happy. It was a pleasant surprise when I met him on the first day of the shoot. He broke the ice immediately and was down-to-earth."
However, Shruthi was tight lipped about her role in the movie. Director Jacob Varghese has not revealed whether the storyline will take off from where the prequel ended.
