Manjunatha fame director Guruprasad's upcoming movie
Director's Special. The Kannada comedy actor has said that
after listening to the story from Guru, he found it difficult to do
the justice to the role. So he decided to stay away from the
Speaking to the media on Saturday, Komal Kumar said, "Comedy
roles suit me very well, but I don't have guts to ridicule my own
industry people (directors). I've already spoken to producer Suresh
and soon I'm going to return him the advance amount. If I agree to
star in the film reluctantly, I would spoil its quality. Even I
would not do justice to director Guruprasad's dream role."
He added, "So I can't play the role. I would participate in the
running race, only if I'm confident of winning it. Otherwise, I
won't. Opting out from the film is my personal decision. Nobody
like my brother Jaggesh or any other industry person has forced me
to do that."
