Triple treat for Kannada movie goers
Kannada cinema goers will have three films -- Huli, Rame Gowda Vs Krishna Reddy and Nayaka -- to choose from this Friday.Kishore's dream of debuting as a lead hero in a Kannada commercial film comes true with Huli, a film is about a reporter and a cop who believe that public participation is the key to solving the issues plaguing the society. Kishore has played cop roles many times before but swears that this time there's a difference.
"I play a full length role in this film. This role is different from what I have played before. This cop believes in making people aware of their responsibilities. Also it is just not his professional life that is highlighted but also his love life," says Kishore. Jennifer Kotwal is the female lead.
This film that highlights certain current issues challenging the nation's progress is directed by Om Prakash Rao. Speaking about his director, Kishore says, "He has come out with an out and out entertainer. He knows what people like. Also he is a director who loves his art and artistes. He is very energetic and involved. Sometimes he used to be so involved in executing the script that he would forget my name! I used to be the 'black shirt' guy for him," he jokes.
Another incident that Kishore recalls is that of him falling out of a jeep while shooting. "I hurt my head and rushed to the hospital thinking that I was about to die! But thankfully nothing happened," he adds.
