Diwakar, runner-up of Bigg Boss Kannada Season 5 is making good progress in his acting career. The common man in the reality show has caught the attention of a few filmmakers. Among them is J Chandrakala, director of the Manoranjan-starrer Chillum, who has brought the newcomer on board the project.
Diwakar, who was a salesman before Bigg Boss, will be playing a friend of Manoranjan’s, and will be bringing comedy elements through his role. We will also get to see his negative side in the film, in which he will be seen alongside the hero throughout.
The project will bring together an interesting set of actors, including Raghavendra Rajkumar who will be making a comeback as a villain. Saritha is also going to be part of the cast.
The film's makers are planning for a grand launch in April, and are currently looking for the right heroine for the film. The team is also said to be approaching Nana Patekar and Kishore for important roles.
