An all-women crew is getting together to bring out a Kannada movie called Ring Road Shuba and for all those young girls looking to make their dreams come true, here is your chance.

The team is hunting for new faces and in this bid, will reach out to aspiring actors. "Girls in the age group of 17-23 years may send their recent photos to the director, Priya Belliappa. They will be required to send four pictures," says a member in the team.

Nine girls will be shortlisted thereafter. Once selected, they will be groomed by Asha Chandra, who has trained the likes of Dimple Kapadia, Nagarjuna and Kangna Ranaut. After undergoing the training, contestants will be asked to give their screen tests that will be aired on television.

"People of Karnataka will then get to cast their vote for a particular contestant depending on her looks and acting skills," adds the member.

Established actors like Pooja Gandhi and Deepa Sanidhi may also be roped in to play crucial roles in the film.
