Ranna’s press meet was indeed an emotional affair. Brothers Nanda Kishore and Tarun Sudhir, sons of yesteryear villain Sudhir, were teary-eyed when they openly admitted that it was Sudeep who was by their side during their days of struggle.
“If not for him, we couldn’t have stood here. It was he who spotted my brother and gave him an opportunity to work in different films,” said Tarun. Nanda Kishore said he was grateful to have been able to direct the star in his third project. “I have done my best to make a good film. I hope it will be well-received by the audience,” he said.
Sudeep too could not hold back tears, while Rachita Ram, along with the rest of the crowd joined in in the sentimental moment.
Sudeep said, “It is not important whether a film is big or small. What is significant is what we take home from the film. Ranna got delayed due to unavoidable circumstances, but I should say this is one of the best young teams I have worked with in recent times. Nanda Kishore has always been sincere to his work, and I only pushed him to become a good technician. I want this film to do well for producer Chandrashekar and director Nanda Kishore.”
Ranna, slated for a June 4 release, is distributed by Gokul Films.
