Malasri, who has played in hit films like Prema Khaidi and Bava Bavamaridi, had distanced herself from the Tollywood for quite some time after her marriage. However, she has become busy with other language films like Kannada. Her recent film Karnataka Kiran Bedi, directed by N Om Prakash Rao, is being dubbed into Telugu as Andhra Kiran Bedi and is getting released very soon.
Speaking on the occasion, Malasri said, “I played a chivalrous and romantic heroine in many Telugu films. But for Kannadigas, I am well known as an action heroine. I have played as police officer in one of my recent films and Kiran Bedi would be the name which is inspiring for woman police officers. So we have chosen that name as our title, but it has nothing to do with her. I am also interested in doing Telugu films if I get interesting characters even now. Any how I am very happy for returning to the Telugu film industry even after a 10-year gap."
Producer and Malasri"s husband Ramu said, “The film which was released in Kannada on March 7 is still running with good collections. Almost 25 days of film has been shot in Ramoji Film City itself. Presently dubbing works are in progress. We are making efforts to release the film in August."
Ashish Vidyarthi, GV, Mahesh, Parthasarathi, Rangayana Raghu, Sivaparvati, Sakuntala and others are in the cast. Camera is by Vishnuvardhan, action is by Palani Raj, while Hamsalekha would take up re-recording of the Telugu version.
