Suraj Gowda, Dhanya Ramkumar to star in Suman Jadugar's Ninna Sanihake

Ninna Sanihake, starring Suraj Gowda, marks the acting debut of Dhanya Ramkumar. The first look poster of the Suman Jadugar-directed movie, which goes on floors from August 19, was unveiled on Monday.
Ahead of the shoot, Dhanya Ramkumar told Cinema Express that although there is a lot of excitement, she is aware of the pressure that comes with any debut. “I want the excitement to overshadow the pressure,” says Dhanya, who is happy to have got a perfect team that gives her the right kind of motivation.
Growing up in the Rajkumar family, Dhanya watched a lot of films featuring her various family members including her grandfather Dr Rajkumar, her father, Ramkumar; her uncles, Shivarajkumar, Raghavendra Rajkumar and Puneeth Rajkumar, and her cousin Vinay Rajkumar. “Earlier, I used to watch their films only to understand the subject. My observations about films are now on a different plane. I watch them very closely, as it will help me in my work,” she says.
Making her debut with a love story, Dhanya says, “For a newcomer, the genre to start with does not matter, and whether it will be easy or hard doesn’t come into the picture because we haven’t done anything yet. With experience, I will be able to distinguish between different subjects, and will be in a better position to analyse the toughest roles to perform for an actor.” Although she is not allowed to talk much about her role in Ninna Sanihake, Dhanya says the director has kept the subject close to reality.
Suraj Gowda, who plays two roles in the film, agrees, and says, "Ninna Sanihake will be a unique romance. It is a commercial film that is 100 per cent real.”
“Every single scene in the film will be relatable. It is a realistic love story without any exaggerations, and will show how this generation's couple face difficulties and get over it. I am waiting to start off on this
roller coaster ride,” he says.
Made under the banner of White and Grey Pictures, Ninna Sanihake is produced by Akshay Rajshekar and Ranganath Kudli. Raghu Dixit will be composing the music while Abhilash Kalathy will be cranking the camera.
