Actor Pranam has grown up watching his father Devaraj and brother Prajwal make their mark in the Kannada film industry. The young actor, who is making his debut in Kannada with 'Kumari 21 F', says he didn't have trouble getting under the skin of the character because he could completely relate to the script and the flow of the story.

In a chat with Nina C George, Pranam talks about his foray into the film industry and the making of the movie.  

What made you accept a remake for your debut?

I had three different producers and directors who had offered me 'Kumari 21 F'. I also watched the original version a couple of times. When so many people were convinced that I was suited for the role, then I didn't have second thoughts about accepting the offer.

Is your role the same as it is in the original?

The role is pretty much the same. The story traces the life of a young man who lives with his mother. He also loves cooking and aspires to be a chef and work on a cruise. However, the story takes a turn when he meets a girl.

What is the crux of the story?

It is not a regular love story. It is about how a young man grows and matures in love. His perception about women and love changes after he finds true love. He learns to become less possessive about the woman he loves and reposes faith in her.

Could you easily connect with the character?  

I did and I am sure every young man in this generation will totally connect with it because this is the story of every guy.

What were some of the challenges you faced when shooting for the film?

I had to portray an array of emotions from love, happiness to anger. And I had to do justice to each of these emotions. That was challenging.

What advise did your father and Prajwal give you when you began shooting?

We take decisions together as a family. More than advise, they gave me constructive feedback after watching the shooting. We discussed the pros and cons of most of the scenes and this helped me a lot. It was nice to have them both around, whenever I needed them.

How has Prajwal influenced you?

I grew up learning about films and understanding what goes on behind the camera from my father and Prajwal.  The smallest of things that Prajwal taught me has helped me. Thanks to him, I was in a comfortable space, when I began working on my first film.
