Actor-choreographer Nagendra Prasad to make his directorial debut with Kannada film
Nagendra is gearing up to direct a Kannada film inspired by the Tamil romantic drama, Oh My Kadavule
Nagendra Prasad, the choreographer, dancer and actor known for his dance moves in Humma humma from Bombay, is set to make his directorial debut. Nagendra is gearing up to direct a Kannada film inspired by the Tamil romantic drama, Oh My Kadavule, which was helmed by Ashwath Marimuthu.
Nagendra Prasad, who worked as a choreographer for films like Jeans, Chocolate and Minnale, has also acted in two Kannada films — Chithra and Manasalla Neene. He is the youngest son of choreographer-actor Mugur Sundar, and brother of popular filmmakers-choreographers Prabhudheva and Raju Sundaram.
Confirming his decision of taking up direction, Nagendra Prasad told Cinema Express, “As a choreographer, my latest project was Vijay Sethupathi’s film, Laabam. I have been honing my skills in direction for some time and worked as an associate with Prabhudheva in the Hindi film, Rowdy Rathore and the Tamil film, Vedi. Having gained a little experience, I thought it’s time for me to get behind the camera.”
Nagendra Prasad added, “I have made a lot of changes for the Kannada version of Oh My Kadavule.”
Details about the cast and crew of the film are yet to be announced, but Nagendra Prasad has shortlisted a few actors from the Kannada industry for various parts. He is in talks with one of the top stars in the industry. “I am in discussions with a few heroes, including a top hero of Kannada movies,” he said.
