‘Praana’, Nithya Menen’s multi-lingual, will hit the screens in Telugu on Feb 8. It will clash with ‘NTR: Mahanayakudu’ and ‘Yatra’ in the same weekend. Much before, its Malayalam version will release on January 18. The film, a thriller, is the actress’ Hindi debut as well.
Directed by VK Prakash, ‘Praana’ has just one character. It will also release in Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada. In the Telugu version, Nani’s voice will be heard as a narrator.
The film was shot in sync sound and there is no dubbing involved. Even most of the BGM is in the sync mode. “Everything is recorded completely on the spot. It was shot in 4 languages separately for the same reason, in 23 days flat. I usually do things in a single take and yet this film was draining because everything had to be acted four times,” Nithya recently said.
