Sruthi Hariharan who is doing very well at the career front as an actress is now turning into a Producer. Her first venture will be a short film titled 'The Last Kannadiga', in which she is going to be seen producing under her banner Kalathmika.
Madan Ramvenkatesh who had worked with Sruthi earlier in the critically acclaimed short film 'ABC' will be directing this short film. The story revolves around the culture and language of Karnataka. This short movie is an attempt by the team to bring this aspect into limelight.
Sruthi, who is producing the movie, is not going to be acting in it, as she has chosen to be behind the camera, this time around. The cast of the movie includes Vasishta N. Simha of the Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu fame, Ravikiran Rajendran and senior actor Jayaprakash.
Abhishek G. Kasargod, who was an associate of Sathya Hegde and worked in films like Raate, will be cranking the camera for this film. Akshay P. Rao who has edited a number of films will be the editor and Aparajith Sris will be taking care of the background score.
The team is planning to release the teaser very soon before taking the film to several film festivals around the world. Shooting has been completed and the post-production work is underway.
Once Sruthi is done with the work for 'The Last Kannadiga', she intends to enter stage production, which is titled in the name of Faces. This will be directed by Ramkumar. She also plans to make meaningful feature films once she is in a financially viable position.
As an actress, she will be seen working in an Upendra starrer Matthe Hutti Baa Uppi and Uruvi, in which the latter one is in the final stages and is said to hit the screens in a month or two.
