Rahul Ramakrishna and Priyadarshi Pullikonda’s dark comedy Mithai , which has been awaiting release for a while now, is scheduled to arrive in theatres on February 21. While these two actors who’ve managed not to got typecast are continuing to make strides, there’s more news on Rahul Ramakrishna’s front.
The actor whose recent film Husharu completed 50 days in theatres, is now acting in an American film titled Silk Road, directed by Pradeep Katasani. Rahul revealed this recently on his social media accounts, sharing an official poster of the film and stating that it’s his humble entry into Hollywood.
Silk Road is an adaptation of a 2018 novel of the same name written by E Mapache and credits Pradeep Katasani for its story. The makers initially intended Silk Road to be a series but later felt it would lend itself to a feature film. The thriller traces the journey of an Indian student who struggles to make ends meet in the US and chances upon high-end LSD that’s worth millions of dollars. He hopes to sell it through the dark web but soon, a Drug Enforcement Administration special agent is hot on his trail.
Pradeep Katasani has worked as a production manager, editor, writer and casting director before producing and directing shorts and independent films; he is based in Los Angeles.
