Hridayam satellite rights acquired by Asianet
‘Hridayam’ is a hugely hyped film majorly due to the coming together of three names — Vineeth Sreenivasan, Pranav Mohanlal and Kalyani Priyadarshan. Vineeth is directing the film that is said to be a feel-good, coming-of-age entertainer. Though shoot is yet to be completed, the film’s satellite rights has already been sold. Asianet has acquired the rights for a huge amount but the exact figure has not yet been disclosed.
‘Hridayam’ is the story of a bunch of individuals and their life journey. Vineeth Sreenivasan has taken real-life inspirations to script this film. Major portions of the film have been shot in the same engineering college in which he and his wife Divya studied. Pranav, Kalyani and ‘Mayaanadhi’ fame Darshana Rajendran play the central characters. Aju Varghese, Vijayaragavan, Baiju, Arun Kurian and several newcomers are also part of the cast.
‘Hridayam’ team was shooting in Chennai when the lockdown was announced. Only 50% of shoot has been completed so far. Since the film demands to be shot outdoor with several crowd sequences, the makers have decided to wait until things get back to normalcy.
