Hyderabad: After a long gap from the Telugu silver screen, actor Hansika Motwani is going to perform before Telugu audiences with a suspense thriller based on a criminal mafia which trades in human skin. The teaser and first look poster of the movie ‘My Name Is Shruti’ was formally unveiled by Talasani Srinivas Yadav in the city on Wednesday.
Hansika plays an ad filmmaker in the thriller wherein she unearths the mafia that trades in human skin. After a long and for the first time, the ‘Desamuduru’ star is playing the lady-oriented character in the movie. The teaser starts with Hansika’s voice in the background where she narrates the story saying, “When she has creativity in her work, the world needs…”
Murali Sharma is playing an investigative officer in the film. Another voice in the background says, “India is the next biggest supplier of human skin after Nepal in the world market.” The film seems to have different layers with twists and the deeply-rooted mafia hunts Hansika for her skin. Written and directed by Srinivas Omkar, the film is being produced by Burugu Ramya Prabhakar under Vaishnavi Arts.
Other characters include senior actor Prema, Jayaprakash, Raja Ravindra, among others, in the principal cast. Kishore Boyadapu is the cinematographer for the film.
Speaking on the occasion, Talasani Srinivas Yadav appreciated the makers for coming up with a concept-oriented story. “With the release of films like ‘Akhanda’ and ‘Pushpa’, audiences have been enjoying watching their favourite films in theatres and it’s a good sign for the Telugu film industry to be back in the business,” he said and hinted that ticket prices will soon become online to bring about transparency.
