Ganesh Venkatram -an is best remembered for films like Abhiyum Naanum and Unaipol Oruvan in Tamil, Kandahar in Malayalam and Eenadu and Damarukkam in Telugu. This model turned actor, who has already acted alongside top heroines of the industry like Trisha and Anushka Shetty will now be paired opposite Shriya in a bilingual - Kannada and Tamil film, titled Chandra, directed by Roopa Iyer. This will also be Ganesha’s Kannada debut.
“I wanted someone who is tall and handsome as the character is a Prince based in US and Ganesh was suitable for the role. Since this is done both in Tamil and Kannada, I was looking for an actor who was quite popular in Tamil too. I am glad that he agreed to do this film,” says Roopa Iyer.
Roopa Iyer’s way of presenting the story was quite convincing, says Ganesh, “I will be playing the role of a prince in the US in this love triangle story. Roopa also plans to take this movie internationally, which seemed quite interesting .”
Ganesh, who is now based in Chennai had an opportunity to be part of all South Indian films except Kannada. “I can now proudly boast that I have acted in all the southern languages,” says the actor, who will be in Bangalore in the month of July to shoot for the film as he awaits for his upcoming releases Pani Thuli in Tamil and Damarukkam with Anushka and Nagarjuna.
