Anant Nag’s cop portrayal awes Kavalu Daari sets
The senior actor plays a retired cop who is tired of city life and leaves to live alone in a farm
Director Hemanth M Rao captured well the disorientation of an Alzheimer’s patient through Anant Nag, in his debut venture Godhi Banna Sadharana Mykattu. The senior actor stole the show in that film. In Hemanth’s next, Anant Nag will be featured again, and this time as a retired police officer.
The filmmaker, who shared the first look of the actor with CE, says, “He plays a fearless and decorated cop, who gets tired of this life and leaves the bustling city to live alone in a farm house. This is the basic character sketch of Anant sir’s role in Kavalu Daari. He will certainly add depth to the role of retired cop, over the course of the film.”
The first schedule has been wrapped up in Mysuru, and the team will now go back to shoot from November first week for a 25-day schedule. The remaining portions will be shot in Bengaluru.
“During the shoot, Anant Nag made us all speechless with his emoting. This will yet again be an intense performance from the senior actor,” says Hemanth.
The film is being produced by Puneeth Rajkumar under PRK productions, along with Anant Nag. Kavalu Daari features Rishi in the lead, with Achyuth Kumar, Sidhartha Maadhyamika, Roshini Prakash, Samanvita Shetty and Siri Ravikumar also part of the cast.
