Sumalatha was one of the reigning southern star of the 1980s.



"Most actors either overact or under-act, but seldom do you find actors who can act subtly. Sumalatha ma'am knows how to express subtly and I've been learning the same from her. There's still so much grace in her performance," Shanvi said.

"She's one of the sweetest persons I've come across in my life. She's still so beautiful and can give most of us a run for our money. I even asked her about my performance and she told me that she liked it. We still have to shoot some scene together," she added.



Sadhu Kokila is helming the Kannada remake, which stars Sumanth as the film's hero, while Hariprriya will be seen as the second female lead.



Meanwhile, Shanvi has signed her first Tamil project opposite actor Ashok Selvan.



"I start shooting from September. I have already started to learn the language (Tamil). I don't think Tamil is as difficult as Kannada, so I guess it shouldn't be a problem picking up the language soon. I guess I just need to watch more Tamil films," she said.
