Actor Pradeep’s ambition had been in a dormant state for quite some time now. Now, after about 18 months of waiting, he is ready to soar. And thankfully, he has director Nanda Kishore, who is riding on the success of Ranna, to give him wings.
Nanda Kishore has chosen Pradeep for his yet-to-be-titled film along with Savari’s leading lady Madhurima. “I am sure Pradeep’s patience will be rewarded as I will put an equal amount of effort and make sure that he experiences the joy of a revamped career with this film,” says Nanda Kishore, who promises another entertainer with his latest outing.
Having done a test shoot with Pradeep and Madhurima, the director is confident that the actor will be seen in a new avatar. “Pradeep looks more mature and manly now. I felt the initial tests were necessary in terms of makeup and costumes and the outcome was satisfactory. Pradeep has an abundance of potential and is a director’s delight. He has done his homework thoroughly and is quite at ease with the shots. His dedication in terms of time was quite necessary, and he has been quite sincere about that aspect,” says Nanda Kishore.
The film is scheduled for a 75-day shoot in Bengaluru, Mysuru and Mumbai. “Though we start the shoot from today, Pradeep will face the camera after a couple of days as I want him to get comfortable with the new people and surroundings. Though he has acted in couple of films, for me, he shall be a newcomer in this film. Madhurima is also showing an equal amount of dedication,” says Nanda Kishore.
