Ace director Yogaraj Bhat, who is making his on-screen debut with Sandalwood's forthcoming movie Dyaavre, has said that he was too shy to face the camera. The movie is all set to hit silver screen this Friday, December 6.
Speaking to leading daily Yograj Bhat said, "I don't know what acting is. I was never fond of acting and, in fact, was too shy to face the camera. But director Viji insisted that I play this role. My character is the central point that links other characters in the film."
Yograj Bhat has don khaki in the movie, which also features Sathish Neenasam, Shruti Hariharan and others in the lead roles. Gadda Vijji, who has worked with Yograj Bhat earlier is making his debut as a director with Dyaavre.
Bhat said that he has trained lot of actors in his career, and he applied the same theory to himself. "There are a lot of emotional scenes and I needed some retakes. But since I've trained a lot of actors, I applied the same theory to myself. I was under pressure to perform well since I've established myself as a director. There have been times when I asked myself if I needed this debut. However, it was worth the effort. Viji, being a talented director, has got the best out of me," Bhat added.
