Diganth, the blue-eyed boy of Kannada film industry, has been riding high after the success of his films Manasaare and Swayamwara. Currently, he is doing two big projects, one with his mentor Yogaraj Bhat and another with Umakanth. 

“In Yogaraj Bhat’s Pancharangi, I am playing a rebel who later understands the value of life and human relationships. I have completely surrendered myself to Yogaraj sir as he knows how to take work from me. Umakanth’s Putra is all about the relationship between father and son. Now that the first schedule of Pancharangi is complete, I can concentrate on Putra,” says Diganth.

What about Somari Sidda, the supposed remake of Wake up Sid? “Actually producer K Manju is trying hard to obtain the remake rights. Once he gets it, we will start working on the project. I am equally anxious to work in Somari Sidda, as the role is closest to my real life.”

The actor, who shot into limelight after his brief role in the film Mungaru Male, does not have any plans to exit Sandalwood. “I am happy working in Kannada industry. I have not thought of anything else till now. My priority is to establish myself firmly in the industry as an actor and an entertainer. Later, I will think of the rest,” he opines.

After the huge success of Gaalipata, Diganth acted in a few films but none of the them was a hit except Manasaare, which brought him rave reviews along with box office success. So, now would he like to work in multistarrers like earlier? “I don’t mind working with other heroes. What I take into consideration is the script and the scope of my role. I want to know whether my role is only for namesake or it is an integral part of the script.
Recently also I shared screen space with Srinagar Kitty in Swayamwara,” says Diganth, who wants to essay some action roles.   

“In Mungaru Male, I briefly appeared in a fight scene but after that I didn’t get a chance to thrash the villains. I will be happy if I get such roles in the future,” says Diganth, who loves to watch Chinese action movies.

Being a sport hunk, Diganth makes time to play badminton, which is his favourite game. “During my school days, I was active in sports and extracurricular activities. I represented Karnataka at national level badminton tournaments in under-19 category. Sports and friends keep me refreshed all the time,” he reveals.
