Everyone in Sandalwood knows that Nee Naadenaa directed by Kandadas is more like a family affair with every member of the Devaraj family involved the film.
Devaraj's wife Chandralekha who had her stint as an actress in films like Sikku is the producer of this film while Devaraj himself is overseeing all aspects of the film. The film also stars his son Prajwal Devaraj in the lead role. We hear Prajwal's brother Pranam Devaraj who is the co-producer of Nee Naadenaa has also made a special appearance in the movie. "Pranam appears in a song sequence, which is choreographed around a marriage celebration." he says.
According to Prajwal, Pranam is always a step ahead of him and in a way, it was his brother's inspiration that led him into films. "Pranam got into acting before me and even won a child artiste award for his role in Manase O Manase starring Ananth Nag and Shruthi.
In fact, my debut film Sixer was an attempt to prove to myself that even I could be an actor because everyone in my family had already established themselves onscreen. When I got offered Sixer, I decided to go ahead and give it my all. Thus I started my career as a hero and continue to do so even today," he says.
Devaraj was planning to launch his other son, Pranam in a leading role soon and gave him a chance to gain some valuable experience on the sets of Nee Naadenaa.
The interesting fact is that Nagabharana's son Pannaga Bharana will be directing Pranam in the yet to be titled film in which he will be launched as a hero.
Prajwal confirms the news and says, "Pannaga has narrated the story and is been liked by all of us. There will be more discussions happening before Pranam is launched and we make the final annoucement. Right now the entire family is busy with the release of our film Nee Naadenaa" he says.
