Mastering tough  lessons

For ‘Golden Star’ Ganesh, his next release ‘Buguri’ is special in a lot of ways. This will be his 25th film and Ganesh has spent a couple of months learning horse-riding and skating for this film. “For the first time in my career, I received training in horse riding. I would wake up at four every morning and begin my training. It was tough simply because the horses were heavy and belonged to the race track. I learnt skating as well,” explains Ganesh.

He says that moving around in skates was a task in itself. “I had to skate on rough surface which was quite taxing like the beaches and roads of Mangalore. I hurt myself several times but it was worth every minute,” he states.  

‘Buguri’ is about a bunch of friends in college and their life after college. “There’s entertainment, love and action as well. It’s an out- and-out commercial movie. I am sure people will be thoroughly entertained,” says Ganesh. “There’s no rain, no love at first sight and no broken hearts. The role demands that I look and behave in a very different way. I have incorporated my experiences during my college days in the film,” says Ganesh.

The film portrays youngsters in a different light. Not all college-going girls and boys bunk classes and waste their time. “There are  intelligent and studious ones who have a purpose and direction in life,” he adds.

Recalling his college days, Ganesh says that he is still in touch with a couple of his friends from school and college. “When we started the shoot for ‘Buguri’, I invited a couple of my college friends on the sets. We have our own chat group and although I am not a regular on chat, I update myself on the happenings,” he shares. 

Ganesh will be seen in a double role for the first time in ‘Style King’. He confesses that he is open to doing all kinds of characters provided the roles are challenging. Ganesh says he reads a lot and watches movies whenever he can grab sometime. “If the script is good enough, I don’t take a long time to slip into the character. I choose my films in such a way that it appeals to all age groups, including the family crowd,” he signs off.
