Star TV anchors like Uday Bhanu, Anasuya , Rashmi Gautham have turned into actresses to test their luck on the silver screen. The latest one to join the list is popular anchor Jayathi. She had a successful stint as an anchor in Gemini TV. She is now set for her debut with an upcoming film Lachchi. On this occasion, we caught up with Jayathi for a brief chat.
Initially, I said no to offers :
I had a successful journey as an anchor on small screen. I gained huge popularity and got many offers in films , but I turned down them. I think this is the right time for me to make debut on silver screen.
I have a lot of interest in production department :
Film production is my area of interest, so I bagged the remake rights of Malayalam hit film My Boss. Before doing this film, I heard Lachchi storyline and was impressed very much. Director Eeswar convinced me to play the female lead in the film.
Post production underway :
Lachchi is a thrilling horror comedy which was majorly shot in and around Tirupathi. We completed the filming in three months and the entire team worked very hard for the film. The solo song has come out very well. The post production activities are going on at present and we are planning to release the film in Summer.
I will continue to produce more films :
I want to make a mark as a producer. I don’t want take risk with the direction department. It needs a lot of experience. I am happy to continue as producer and will produce more films in the coming days. The pre production work of my next film has already commenced. I will reveal more details soon.
