Despite setbacks, Namma Hudugaru is still special to me: Niranjan Sudhindra

Niranjan Sudhindra, the nephew of Real Star Upendra, who made his on-screen debut with Priyanka Upendra’s Second Half, is finally turning a lead hero with Namma Hudugaru. The film is set to hit the theatres on Friday.

“My debut as a hero did not go as planned. It was a struggle. Working in the film also made me understand the difficulties in production and distribution. Yet, it did not deter my career plans. I was calm and composed, and it has finally paid off. Here I’m with my first film,” he says.

Namma Hudugaru, directed by HB Siddu, is set in the village of Mandya and Mangaluru.

“The film was made four years ago when I was lean and looked like a college-goer. Back then, my personality did not suit mass films, and that’s why I had to pick a subject like Namma Hudugaru. I want to do good cinema. In the end, my performance, my dancing skills, and how the audiences accept me matter the most. Despite setbacks, I still consider Namma Hudugaru special because it is my first film as a hero,” he says.

The film, produced by KK Ashraf, features Radhya as the female lead, and Vasishta Simha appears in a pivotal character. Abhiyan Roy and Chidanand HK have handled the music and cinematography, respectively.

Talking about the support from his uncle Upendra, he says, “I feel very humbled and responsible. I have a goal and I’m clear on how to take my career forward,” he says.
