Ganesh Venkatraman has now been signed as opposite Shriya for a Tamil-Kannada bilingual ‘Chandra’. This will also be Ganesh’s Kannada debut. The movie deals with the life of a last generation princess (essayed by Shriya) and this love story has two heroes. Along with Ganesh Venkatraman popular Kannada actor Prem is one of the heroes.
About choosing Ganesh, award-winning filmmaker Roopa Iyer says, “I wanted someone who was tall and handsome and also a powerhouse of an actor, for that particular US-based character, who would also be Shriya’s pair. Ganesh fitted the role to a T — exactly what I had conceived in my mind.” The film will be shot in America as well, as part of the story unfolds there.Ganesh is equally thrilled about his new role!
The former Gladrags Mr. India has been chosen to be the face of ‘Coimbatore Fashion Week’, the first ever high-profile fashion event in the cotton city.Ganesh said, “I am really excited about Chandra! When Roopa narrated the script, it was fascinating and I immediately gave my nod.”
