Actor Kishore, who has earlier roared as a tiger in Huli, is now all set to rock the screens as Veerappan in the movie Attahasa, which is one of the most-awaited Kannada movies of 2013. He is basically a lecturer and fashion designer and he debuted as an actor with Murali-Ramya starrer film Kanti. Besides Kannada, he has also acted in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam movies. So far, he has more than 25 films to his credit.
Kishore's latest outing Attahasa, which has simultaneously been made in Kannada, Tamil and Telugu, is scheduled to hit the screens on February 14. In a candid chat with Oneindia reporter Balaraj Tantri, the actor extensively spoke about the much-hyped movie. Here are excerpts of Kishore's interview.
What did you feel when AMR Ramesh offered the lead role in Attahasa?
Attahasa is one of the much-hyped movies, which had hit the floors long back. At the moment, I was looking for a good role. When the director approached me for Veerappan's role, immediately, I gave him my consent without giving a second thought about it.
What would you like to tell about your role in Attahasa?
The movie is based on real incidents and it has been shot in the places, where the incidents happened. I have a very tough and challenging role in it. Before starting the shoot, I have done lot of homework on the character. I have done lot of rehearsal to showcase Veerappan's body language and diction. I have tried my level best to do justice to the role given to me. I hope viewers will really like it.

What is your comment on AMR Ramesh's commitment?
He is one of the most committed Kannada directors I have seen and it was a great pleasure to work with him. He has done lot of research before starting this project. While shooting, he was seriously involved with each and every character and incident in it. I'm really surprised to see his dedication to work.
What would you like to comment on Suresh Oberoi, who has played late actor Dr Rajkumar in the film?
Suresh Oberoi is a wonderful actor and I have grown up watching his movies. He has delivered a wonderful performance, which is a great tribute to the dignity of Dr Rajanna.
How was your work experience with Arjun Sarja?
He is playing Police Office Vijayakumar. He is a down to earth guy. I had a wonderful time with him on the sets of Attahasa.
In recent times, movies are being made on real incidents. What is your take on this trend?
It is good trend, but such movies should not harm the social harmony.
Finally, what is your message to the film goers?
We have done our best and given you a wonderful movie. You are the judges. Please watch it in theatres and encourage us.
