Priya Anand’s birthday. Priya Anand, as many would already know, plays the female lead in ‘James’ and the makers took the opportunity to also unveil the name of her character in the film through the poster – Priya Anand plays Nisha Gayakwad in Chetan Kumar’s ( Chethan Ahimsa) upcoming action entertainer.
This would be Priya’s second outing in Kannada cinema after having made her debut opposite Puneeth Rajkumar in Santhosh Ananddram’s ‘Raajakumaara’ in 2017. The on-screen pair went on to garner a lot of love and adoration from the fans, and with the two returning to collaborate once again on ‘James’, the excitement is certainly huge at the moment.
The makers had to endure a considerable delay in production due to the pandemic but were eventually able to get back on floors a few weeks ago, post the relaxation. Having begun the new schedule with an intense action sequence, the whole team is now sparing no effort in wrapping production at the earliest. The first official poster of James was unveiled on the 15th of August. Kishore Pathikonda has bankrolled the project.
The makers have also roped in veteran Tamil actor Sarath Kumar to play the film’s antagonist. Alongside, the principal cast also includes Anu Prabhakar, Meka Srikanth, Adithya Menon, Padmaja Rao, and others. Popular small screen personality Shine Shetty too was roped in very recently to play a key role in the film.
