Kannada actress Samyukta Hornad is foraying into Tamil as well Telugu film industries with the forthcoming trilingual romantic-drama Ulavacharu Biryani, which will release as Un Samayal Arrayal in Tamil and Oggarane in Kannada. This film is releasing in cinemas this Friday. She thanks her stars for an opportunity to work with acclaimed actor-turned-filmmaker Prakash Raj.
In an interview to IANS, Samyukta Hornad said, "To act with Prakash Raj sir is a very big deal. I should thank my stars for it. I was initially nervous to work with him but it all changed when I was on sets. The best part about the film is that Prakash sir is directing it as well acting in it. Therefore, he was guiding us like no other director."
Samyukta Hornad added, "We also got scolded but it was only because we deserved it. We had so much to learn and we happen to make a few mistakes. I have been to acting school, studied film and TV in college, but this was a different experience. I had to unlearn whatever I've learnt before this film, and learn again."
Ulavacharu Biryani is the official remake of super-hit Malayalam movie Salt N Pepper. Food plays an important part in the film. Besides Samyukta, the film also features Sneha and Tejas in lead roles. Samyukta, who had to learn Telugu as well Tamil for the film, says shooting in three languages was a challenge.
Samyukta Hornad said, "I had to learn Telugu and Tamil. Moreover, it was a challenge to shoot simultaneously because when I had more dialogues, we would shoot in Kannada first. If Sneha had more dialogues, we would shoot in Tamil first and if Tejus had more dialogues, we would shoot in Telugu first."
