Popular actor Arjun Sarja is on a twin high. He is getting ready to launch his daughter, Aishwarya, in his next directorial venture in Kannada, and will also be essaying the role of a cop in ‘Game,’ directed by AMR Ramesh.

Arjun and Ramesh are coming together after ‘Attahasa’ which was based on a true story. ‘Game’ has a solid storyline narrated in a commercial and entertaining format, Arjun says.
The veteran actor has always worked on a lot of things simultaneously. “Even when I am acting, I always sit with the directors and give them my inputs. I also share my thoughts on how best to improvise and better the product. Ramesh has conceptualised every character in this project after a lot of thought,” says Arjun.

Arjun is playing a cop but the director has made sure it is not the typical cop’s role. The actor has also undergone a complete makeover for this film. He has cut his hair really short and sports a clean-shaven look. 

The movie also has Bollywood actor Manisha Koirala making her debut in Kannada. Arjun and Manisha were last seen together as the romantic lead in Tamil film, ‘Mudhalvan’.

 “Manisha is a brilliant actor. When I read the script, I told the director that she would be best suited for the character and after it was narrated to her, she accepted the role without a second thought,” shares Arjun, who says that it is great to be working with Manisha once again. 

Arjun always encourages new talent and the audience will get to see some new faces in ‘Game’.

“Young talents must be encouraged. We have roped in some new faces will give the story a new high,” he adds. 

Commenting on the title, Arjun says, “We chose to call the project, ‘Game’, because all the characters are caught in a game of sorts and it’s only when all the characters come together the real game is exposed,” he explains.

Arjun feels his daughter Aishwarya is ready to debut as an actor. “She’s grown up to be a very confident individual and she is finally set to make her entry into the world of cinema. I keep telling her that it’s not easy to be an actor and that there will be a lot of expectations from her and I think she’s now up for the challenge,”
he says.
