Reeshma Nanaiah will play the female lead in Prem’s magnum opus KD – The Devil. Produced by Suprith under the KVN Productions banner, KD – The Devil stars Dhruva Sarja in the lead. The pan-Indian film is touted to be on the gang wars of Bengaluru in the 1970s.
The makers released the first-look poster of Reeshma’s character Machhlakshmi. In the poster, the actress is seen in a fiery avatar, taking a bite of a chicken piece. “Reeshma Nanaiah as Machhlakshmi steps into KD’s vintage adda,” says the poster.
Reeshma made her debut with Prem’s romantic drama EK Love Ya in 2022. KD-The Devil also stars Sanjay Dutt, Shilpa Shetty, and V Ravichandran. Arjun Janya will score the music for the film while William David is the cinematographer. Prem’s regular collaborator Srinivas P Babu is the editor. Seasoned stunt master Ravi Varma will choreograph the action sequences.
Prem’s last big-ticket film was The Villainstarring Shivarajkumar and Sudeep. The action thriller was panned by critics and fans alike for a shoddy script that wasted two superstars.
