Priya Anand will be reuniting with the Power Star Puneeth Rajkumar once again on the big screen. The South Indian and Bollywood actor, who made her Kannada film debut with Santhosh Ananddram’s Raajakumara, will be seen opposite Puneeth Rajkumar in James.
The action commercial entertainer directed by Chethan Kumar is currently rolling and the hunt for the heroine was going on for some time. After much thought, the team has decided to bring back the Raajakumara pair. A formal announcement from the production side is awaited.
Priya won over the Kannada audiences right in her first film, and then worked with Ganesh in Orange. This will be her third Kannada project, and it's another big one.
Priya has also signed a film opposite Shivarajkumar. Titled RDX, the team is yet to begin shooting for that project.
The multilingual actor, who has worked in Tamil, Malayalam, Hindi, and Telugu films, was last seen in Dhruv Vikram’s debut film, Adithya Varma, in a supporting role. Her next project in Tamil is Sumo, a comedy-drama in which she is paired opposite Shiva.
James is produced by Kishore Pathikonda, and for the first time, Charan Raj will be composing music for a Puneeth-starrer. The film also features a host of interesting names in the cast, including Telugu actor Srikanth, Anu Prabhakar, and Adithya Menon.
