Actress Soundarya Jayamala is sad that the shooting for her new film Paaru W/o Devdas completed. The film's shooting was wrapped up on Thursday by director Kiran Govi. The film has Srinagar Kitty and Rajashri Ponappa in other lead roles.
The film is an adaptation of the classic Devdas story but with a twist as the title suggests. In the original, Paaru does not marry Devdas, but she does in this film. Soundarya has been gung ho about this film from the very beginning and on Thursday she made her sadness apparent as the shooting completed.
When the shooting on the last day started, she announced, "Last day of Paaru W/o Devdas!!! Getting so emotional." Later in the day she announced, "Movie is done. Shoot finally completed. Will miss my whole crew so much."
