Kannada actress Bhoomi Shetty is thrilled about her upcoming film Ikkat, which will release directly on Amazon Prime Video. The Kannada film is directed by Esham and Haseen Khan and features Nagabhushana in the lead roles. Ikkat follows the story of a married couple who have filed for a divorce. But they are forced to spend their time together when a national lockdown is announced. Ikkat marks Bhoomi Shetty's debut in the Kannada film industry.
Speaking about how she bagged her debut film, Bhoomi Shetty said, " was locked up in my home too like the rest of the world when I got a call regarding the film, asking me to audition for the lead role. I found the plot interesting and sent in my audition video. I was then asked to come to Bangalore where I met the entire team. I was thrilled to join the cast of Ikkat. It is my first film and I was not expecting a project like this to come my way, especially during the lockdown. I was thrilled to meet Nagabhushana. I had watched his movie, French Biryani, and loved it. I was like- wow I’m being paired opposite Nagabhushana. I enjoyed playing a layered character like Janhnvi. She is a village girl who is a little irritating at times. She wants that city life where she can style herself the way she wants and look good on social media. There is this love-hate relationship between her and her husband Vasu, which audiences will surely find interesting. ”
