    Shooting for the movie Actor is under way at a brisk pace at a posh house in Bengaluru. Senior journalist and lensman K M Veeresh who is producing the movie under the banner Chitraloka Movies along with Dayal and Avinash U Shetty as his co-producers is leaving no stone unturned in ensuring that there is no compromise on the quality of the movie and what the script demands.

    The movie is directed by Dayal Padmanabhan. Actor has only two characters which is portrayed by Naveen Krishna and Sihikahi Geetha.


    Prior to the commencement of the shoot, Veeresh and his team met V Ravichandran and presented him a mug which had a sketch of Charlie Chaplin and in return got clapboard for the movie from the actor.

    According to director Dayal, ‘Actor’ will be a classic commercial film with a psychological thriller tone thereby dismissing the thought that Actor will turn out to be an art movie. He categorically said Actor will be an artistic movie. Well known Suresh Byrasandra is the Cinematographer.

    Naveen Krishna will be performing Yakshagana for one of the songs where he will express his frustration. The other number will be in sharp contrast as it will be a motivational song.

  • First Time Srinivasa Murthy Clap for Actor in 40 Years - Exclusive

    Senior actor Srinivas Murthy clapped the clap board for the first shot of his son Naveen Krishna's new film Actor today. Naveen Krishna said it was the first time his father clapped the board for his film. But Srinivas Murthy announced another shocking fact. He said "I am in the film industry for 40 years now. Not just for my son's film but I had not held the clapboard for any film all these years. This is the first time for me as well. I cannot give reasons for this. No one asked me so far and I never got the opportunity. That's all."

    This fact came to light only much later today when Chitraloka editor, KM Veeresh, who is also the producer of the film, called him to thank him for gracing the muharat function held on Monday morning. 

    Srinivas Murthy is a veteran, one of the few lead actors of the Rajkumar generation still active in films. This group is a small one but the pride of Sandalwood that includes among others Sudharshan, Rajesh and Anant Nag.  It is a big surprise that one of these veterans and legends of Sandalwood has never been in the pride of place in a film muharat. 

    One of the most important celebrating time of a film is its muharat. The person who wields the clap board for the muharat shot is the chief guest for all practical purposes. When unknown people without any contribution to Kannada film industry do this honour, it is also a sad reflection on how we treat the veterans of KFI who have dedicated their lives for it. Let us not forget our seniors in the industry.
