Promising actress, Sonu (Shruti Ramakrishna), who had stayed away from movies following her marriage, is staging a comeback through Half Mental. Apparently, Sonu is going through a rough phase of her married life, with the actress preferring not to speak about it.
Half Mental, which is produced by Sairam Cine Talkies, went on the floors recently. Lakshmi Dinesh, who has written the story, screenplay and dialogues for the movie, will also direct it. While C L Ravi is the cinematographer, B J Bharat has composed the music. A new face, Sandeep is making his debut through Half Mental.
The star cast includes Mico Nagaraj, Tabala Nani, Mohan Juneja and Lakshmidevamma. Murali is the choreographer for the movie, while Mass Mada will direct the stunt sequences. The movie will be a romantic / action movie. The movie will be shot in two schedules over two months.
Sonu debuted through the critically acclaimed Inthi Ninna Preethiya, directed by well-known film-maker, Duniya Soori in 2008. She acted in several hit movies, including Police Quarters. Sonu even acted in a few Malayalam movies like Best Actor and Doubles.
After her wedding in 2011, Sonu stayed away from films. However, this year, she signed a record 4 Kannada movies and 2 Tamil movies. Other than Half Mental, she will be seen in Kannada movies Goa, Papassu Kalli, and Sthree Shakti. It looks like Sonu is set to stage a strong comeback this year.
