Television actor Sagar, who is known for his dual role in Telugu serial Mogili Rekulu, is all set to make his debut on big screen with upcoming Telugu romantic-drama Siddharth, which will be produced by Dasari Kiran Kumar, son of veteran filmmaker Dasari Narayana Rao. The producer is yet to finalise other cast and crew members of the film, which is likely to hit the floors in March.
Talking to IANS, Naresh Chandra, who is directing Sagar in Siddharth, confirmed the news about his casting. The director said, "I have a subject that I think only Sagar can do justice to. I don't see him as a debutant because with his television experience, I don't think audience will see him as one. He is a household name in the industry and, therefore, won't find it difficult to sustain."
Naresh Chandra, who has earlier worked with producer Dil Raju, will start shooting from March onwards. He added, "My working experience with Dil Raju sir has certainly shaped my career. I feel more confident than I ever felt before and it is with this confidence I'm going ahead with my project."
Born on August 16 in Godavarikhani, Karimnagar Sagar has schooling in Chinmaya Vidyalaya. He has completed his graduation in BSc Computers from AV College, Hyderabad. He started his acting career with a small role - Jagan in Srikanth Productions' popular serial Chakravakam in 2006. This role landed him the main lead Srikanth Productions' next project Mogali Rekulu, which features Sagar as father (RK Naidu) and son (Munna/Mahidhar).
For Sagar, acting is a passion. With ease in acting, expressive eyes and perfect body language, he has gained immense popularity and craze among the audience. He carries every character with the same command over it and performs each scene in an excellent way. He has also won Nandi Best Actor Award for his performance in 2010.
