Priyamani signs Kannada film Raam

Tamil actress Priyamani has signed her first Kannada film Raam, which is a remake of Telugu superhit Ready. Priyamani will star opposite Puneet Raj Kumar.

A National Award winner for her performance in Tamil film Paruthiveeran, Priyamani has been offered Kannada films earlier too, but either the dates didn’t match or there were problems over fees.
Kannada flick Raam is expected to be a 100 percent entertainer. Acoording to producer Adithya Babu, “We were trying to get her on board for some time, but somehow dates could not be matched earlier. But now we have advanced our shooting schedule. Priyamani was more than accommodating. Everything has fallen into place now and she would finally be acting in her first Kannada film”.

Priyamani too had expressed her desire to work in a Kannada film after she won the National Award for the 2007 film Paruthiveeran.

Priyamani has also landed into a role in acclaimed director Mani Ratnam’s bilingual film Ashokavanam and Raavana, which boasts of a cast that includes Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai.
