Nataraj cleans up to play student in Kalbettadha Dordekora
The actor is clean-shaven for his role as a college-goer in the film directed by Deepak Maduvanalli
Remember the convict Sandal Raja played by Nataraj in Rama Rama Re? Dressed in shabby clothes with long, unruly hair, this role brought Nataraj fame. After that role, the actor’s look in his second film, Kalbettadha Dordekora, will surprise fans. CE got hold of the first look from the film, which is directed by Deepak Maduvanalli.
The actor is clean-shaven for his role as a college-goer. “I play a college student in the film, which is set in a village. I have minimal dialogues and used plenty of facial expressions to depict what my character was feeling. It was a completely different experience,” says Nataraj.
The female lead is played by TV actor Shwetha Prasad, whose character is called Kamali. Based on a novel written by Anush Shetty, the film has Hemanth playing the villain, along with Sundar Raj, Manjunath, and Anil Neenasam as part of the cast.
The post-production work has been completed, and the film is ready to be presented to the censor board. The makers are hopeful to release it either in July or August. Kalbettadha Dordekora has music by Anoop Seelin, and cinematography by Kiran Hampapura.
