Rakshit Shetty, who is presenting Hostel Hudugaru Bekagiddare in theatres on July 21, says that it is going to be a fun ride from start to end
Rakshit Shetty’s efforts to support new talent is not only limited to producing films through his home banners, Paramvah Studios and Paramvah Spotlight. Every now and then, he is also at the forefront of helping certain films reach maximum audiences and giving them the push they deserve by stepping in as presenter and putting the might of his name and that of his studio behind them. At the moment, Rakshit, who has his own film coming out in a couple of months, has been shining the spotlight on a film called Hostel Hudugaru Bekagiddare, by debutant director Nithin Krishnamurthy, a campus comedy that will be in theatres on July 21.
“I have multiple reasons for coming on board as the presenter of Hostel Hudugaru Bekagiddare. Obviously, I take such decisions only after watching a film and this one, I have already seen twice and I enjoyed it equally each time I did. In fact, before the film’s release, I want to watch it once more, because there are a lot things that I liked about it. Cinematographer Aravind Kashyap is one of the main reasons that I saw Hotel Hudugaru Bekagiddare, because back when I was still shooting for 777 Charlie, he’d meet me and show me visuals from the film. I was quite intrigued and impressed by the way they have shot it, because I’d seen such technical aspects only in Hollywood movies earlier. A lot of it was shot in guerilla-style, so the camera movements are quite interesting. Also, Nithin’s handling of the whole film was impressive,” Rakshit said at the film’s recent trailer launch.
The actor-filmmaker adds that he was also taken in by the rest of the team and that by seeing their contributions to Hostel Hudugaru Bekagiddare, it renewed his faith in the hope that the Kannada film industry has a bright future ahead. “I am very proud that a film like this has been made in Kannada. It is going to be a fun ride from start to end. As much as it is a brainless comedy, there is a small layer of philosophy to it. It is a beautiful film, and I guarantee that no one is going to be disappointed,” he added.
