Roger Narayan to play an anti-hero in Kaarky
This dark psychological thriller will be a Kannada-Tamil bilingual that features the actor in the titular role
When Roger Narayan picks a project, one knows to expect the unusual, going by his previous track record. 2019 begins with a dark psychological thriller for the actor as he's signed on for Lokesh Prabhu’s directorial Kaarky.
A bilingual made in Kannada and Tamil, the film will feature him in the titular role, which happens to be that of an anti-hero. “An interesting script and character is what attracts me to a project. In this case, young director Lokesh’s narration was unique, which is why I grabbed the offer,” says Roger, adding that this is a subject that has ben touched upon in Korean and English films, but not in any Indian language. “The advantage is that this is being done in two languages — Kannada and Tamil, both of which I am familiar with.”
The story, which has three young girls at its core, apparently revolves around the concept of karma. Kaarky, now in the pre-production stage, will go on floors on April 27. Meanwhile, the makers are looking to finalise the rest of the actors and technicians before they start shooting.
