actor Dharma Keerthiraj, who debuted through Darshan starrer movie
Navagraha, has now turned independent hero with the movie
Olave Vismaya. He has played a lover boy in the first half
and later as a serious man in it. Directed by TN Nagesh, the movie
is now getting ready to hit the screens soon.
The song" Kanna Kanna Saluge…" from the movie Navagraha
has become a superhit Kannada song. Dharma Keerthiraj was one among
nine stars featured in the song, which has got rave reviews from
the critics. Director TN Nagesh was also impressed by the song as
well as Dharma"s performance in it. He decided to rope him in for
his debut director venture Olave Vismaya.
The director has earlier worked and trained under the directors
like S Narayan and Rajashekhar. Nagesh, who is clear and
straightforward in his words as well as deeds, is not at all
interested in remake movies. He wants to grow beyond the remakes
and become one among the independent and successful directors.
Actor Dharma was more interested in tennis during his college
days. And he wanted to continue in the same field, but due to actor
Darshan, he changed his court from tennis to big screen. Dharma
Keerthiraj is none other than the son of yesteryears villain
Keerthiraj. He inherited his acting qualities from his father.
