Looking ahead

For model-turned Kannada actor Srinivas Prakash, acting in films was always a dream. He had worked as a model during his college days and then received training under Anupam Kher.

Big leap: Srinivas PrakashNow he is awaiting the release of his debut film, Lifu Ishtene, which he says, is an important phase in his life. In a chat with ‘Metrolife’, he talks about fashion and his new movie.

At the ‘Bangalore Fashion Week’, he walked the ramp as a showstopper. Though he was a successful model in his college days, he had never been a showstopper earlier. Hence being part of the fashion week was a huge experience for him. He says exuberantly, “I had always wanted to be one and now it is like a dream come true.”

About his sense of fashion and style, he informs that there is nothing more fashionable than dressing comfortably. He says, “I believe in the ‘mantra’ that you should always keep it simple. There is no point following trends if you do not know how to carry yourself in the right manner. You should not flaunt styles just for the sake of wearing something flashy, rather you should wear something that suits your personality.”

About being trained at Anupam Kher’s acting school, he says, “It was a brilliant learning experience to work under Anupam Kher. He is one of the brilliant actors in the film industry. It helped me hone my acting skills and prepare for my debut.”

On Lifu Ishtene directed by Yogaraj, he says, he is excited about this venture as he is working with one of the big names in the industry like Yogaraj. It is a very contemporary movie which is based on urban life. All I can say about my role is that it is an important one.”

How did he prepare for his role? “I didn’t have to do much. This role requires me to put myself in the shoes of a rich father’s son. The director was confident that I could pull it off easily. My stay in Mumbai helped me get a perspective about this role.”

He even has a word of praise for actor Diganth with whom he will be sharing screen space in the movie. He says, “He is a brilliant actor and very professional. I have known him for seven years now and he is a good friend of mine. So it was great working with him.”

The movie will release in a month’s time and he is all excited about it. So what are his future projects? “Right now, I haven’t finalised on any script. I am just looking forward to the release of this movie and I am keeping my fingers crossed.”
