It’s Nishvika Naidu for Gentleman

Director-turned-producer Guru Deshpande has chosen to work with the actor for the second time after Paddehulli

Published: 10th October 2018

Director Guru Deshpande’s first productional venture Gentleman, finally has a heroine. Nishvika Naidu has edged out a few other actors to bag this role. In the film directed by Jadesh Kumar Hampi, she will be paired opposite Prajwal Devaraj. Interestingly, Nishvika will be associating with Guru Deshpande for the second time for this project. She is also part of his film Paddehulli — the launchpad for Shreyas Manju — which is currently rolling.  

The producer explains that Nishvika’s dedication and commitment is what caught his attention, and that’s why he decided to work with her again. “I liked her performance in Paddehulli, which is why I chose to work with Nishvika for Gentleman too. More importantly, she has a good hold of the Kannada language, which is necessary for this film,” says Guru, adding, “I did have a few options, and was in talks with a few heroines, but considering the characterisation in Gentleman, we thought she fit the bill. Secondly, she was able to commit to us with dates.” 

With the lead pair now finalised, Gentleman is set to go on floors on October 25. The shooting has been planned within a 25-day schedule. 

Ravi Basrur has been roped in as music director and Sudhakar as cinematographer. As for the rest of the cast, the makers have brought in Tabla Nani, Aruna Balraj and Sadhu Kokila.
