Sammir Dattani, Mukul Dev and Vivek Oberoi, one more Bollywood
actor is now debuting in Kannada films. He is no other than Aftab
Shivdasani. Yes! Director Pratap Gowda has made an official
announcement that he has roped in Aftab Shivdasani for his
much-hyped multi-starrer Kannada movie Udyan Express.
According to him, Aftab is playing a pivotal role.
Aftab was first introduced to director Pratap Gowda through his
friend Rama Iyer, who is also playing a small role in the film
Udayan Express. He got impressed and accepted to play the
role when the director approached him with his script. Pratap is
very happy to work with him.
The movie Udyan Express has been facing problems one
after another since its announcement. It is a big budget movie and
will be made in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi simultaneously.
The movie has already seen a big delay due to the unavailability of
dates of various actors.
Earlier, it was reported that the director was planning to rope
in actresses like Prachi Desai and Riya Sen. But he landed up with
actresses like Garam Masala fame Nargis, Jennifer Kotwal,
Hong Kong-based actress Mishti and Madhurima. Revathi Menon is also
making her comeback to Kannada through this film.
