S.Sruuthi’s PSBB School

On Friday 4th September 2015, at 3.30 PM S. Sruuthi’s PSBB School Music Teachers Padmashri & Ammu Madam, had called Father of S. Sruuthi on his cell phone and asked S. Sruuthi to be taken straight to Prasad Studios for Music Maestro Ilayaraja’s song recording by 4 PM.


Little did we least imagine that S. Sruuthi would be asked to sing a full length Children’s song that too in an un-known “Kannada Language” although she had sung songs like “Baghiyadha lakshmi bhaarama” in Kannada and several songs of Saint Thyagarajar Annamacharyar’s krithis in Telugu, Marati Bajans and in other languages. The Director had explained the meaning of Bhombay mean Toy, Jinkue mean breeze, etc.

As the song rehearsals for 2 songs were going on right under the nose of Ilayaraja , the Director of this film titled “RAJU’S MEDAL” asked the S. SHIVPPRASADH and his wife Rama after coming to know that we are S. Sruuthi’s parents as to whether we would permit her to act the main role in that children Film. When asked about the film subject the director Ms. NANDITHA said it was a pure children’s film aimed at “eradicating child marriage”.

Striking memories came flashing to me “As based on a detailed interview published in The Hindu by the then Editor-in-Chief of The Hindu Mr. N. Ram with the then Hon’ble president of India Smt. Prathiba Devi Singh Patel” on various social evils ‘Eradication of Child Marriage’ was topping as one among them and the slogan coined and highlighted by The then President was “One Child Marriage has ten Ill effects”.

Based on The Hindu’s publication S. Sruuthi started propagating on the Evils of Child Marriage through Fancy dress that enabled her to have a personal meeting with the Then Hon’ble President on 21.03.2009 at VIP Ceremonial lounge of Madras Old Airport.

Director Ms. Nanditha who had done a photo shoot of S. Sruuthi in nativity costume and made her act with Kannada dialogues delivery was fully impressed and approved to cast her in this film as a victim of child marriage but parents yet to decide as her drama date on 01.10.2015 seem to clash with her film shooting dates. However they have promised to adjust the same and if done so she will be fruitfully using her holidays from 19.09.2015 to shoot for the film at Thirthahalli near Shimoga where ‘Malgudi Days’ were shot along with artists like Prakashraj, etc from 24.09.2015 with a gap of 3 days for her drama rehearsals.
