New Delhi: Shweta Basu Prasad seems to be going on air with her next big film. The actress who drove into a giant controversy the last year has finally signed a Kannada film.

While Shweta accepted that it had been a great deal for her to come out of all the mess she found herself delved-in the last year, the actress also claimed that she would be returning to films as and when she will strike a good script.

However, the makers of this Kannada project have mentioned that it came as very difficult to convince Shweta for the film. The director of the film has narrated his entire experience on how he somehow managed to get Shweta to play a substantial role in his film.

Director Pratham told the media that Shweta didn't respond to his texts and calls when he initially tried to get in touch with her. And it was only through the mails that the actress agreed to read the script. Further, the director mentioned that Shweta had expressed denial with the project if she was not being offered a full fledged role and asked to do just a dance number.

However, when the director stated the lady that he had got a good role for her in the film, Shweta agreed to meet him and discuss the script. "I persisted, and when she finally called me, it was a conversation that lasted over an hour-and-a-half. In the end, she asked me to go to Mumbai with the script. When I went there, she got involved to such an extent that she even suggested fine-tuning certain scenes and said she was looking forward to being a part of the film,” Pratham told the media.

Though Shweta Basu Prasad has been dealing with a lot of filth due to her alleged involvement in as ex racket case, several industry people had come out in the support of the actress.

Well, if all goes well, this would turn as debut project for the actress in Kannada film industry. The film would have Shweta playing the character of a narrator who reveals and rolls the entire story interestingly.
