“I have a film with Nana Patekar. Prakash Raj, who is a very famous actor, and has won numerous awards, will be directing a Hindi film for the first time, it’s named aTadka’. Its a sweet love story… I’ll be shooting for that in Goa,” Shriya said to a query about her upcoming projects while attending an art exhibition here.
The film is a remake of Malayalam film “Salt N’ Pepper”, and Prakash Raj was the actor and director of the Tamil, Telugu and Kannada versions and also had produced it.
The film is also set to feature Taapsee Pannu and Ali Fazal and Nana, who replaces Prakash Raj’s character, will romance Shriya in the film.
At the art exhibition on Lord Krishna, titled “Krishnansh”, she said: “I do Kathak, and if you’re connected with any art form in India, Krishna becomes a part of your existence, and since childhood I have danced on his songs and his bhajans’, and poetry.
“There’s something very divine, naughty, very beautiful, beyond words about Krishna. And painting him is very difficult because we have so many impressions about him, and expressing that is difficult. I used to do Krishna-inspired painting till 2-3 years ago… I love painting and love to see art.”
Shriya’s last Hindi film was “Drishyam”.
