“The Man Who Knew Infinity” actress Devika Bhise is set to join Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the survival drama “Shambhala.”
The film tells the story of a lone plane crash survivor who has to come to terms with a past he can’t remember in a foreign land. Bhise will play Tamara, a woman Rhys Meyers encounters along his journey.
The film is written and directed by Summer Bodhi Nicks (“Operation 021”). It’s produced by the Singapore/Australian-based company Xeitgeist Entertainment Group and Singapore/Japan-based Marcys Holdings. Huw Penault Jones (“The Man Who Knew Infinity”) and Jomon Thomas will produce.
Other cast members include Australian/Indian actress Pallavi Sharda, Allan Wu, Kabir Singh and Akshay Kumar.
London-based Carnaby Sales & Distribution will handle international sales. Production begins later this fall.
Bhise’s “The Man Who Knew Infinity” starred Jeremy Irons and Dev Patel, and premiered at this year’s Toronto Film Festival. She also recently appeared in “The Accidental Husband” opposite Colin Firth. She also has past credits on TV series that include “Elementary” and “One Bad Choice.”
She is repped by Kanner Entertainment and Peikoff Mahan Law Office.
