The Sandalwood superstar’s son will play his younger self in the upcoming movie Sakath
Kannada superstar Ganesh, known for 99, the remake of Tamil blockbuster ’96, made the birthday celebrations of his son even more special today. The actor earlier today shared that his son Vihan will play his younger self in the upcoming movie Sakath. Vihan made his debut with Geetha in 2019, in which Ganesh played the lead.
This is the second time Ganesh is collaborating with director Suni. They had earlier joined hands for commercially successful Chamak. Suni is known for Simple Agi Ondh Love Story, his directorial debut in 2013 which became an immediate hit upon its release and was lauded by critics as well as fans.
Nishvika Naidu is roped in to play the heroine in Sakath. The plot revolves around a musical reality show and its contestants. Ganesh is rumoured to be playing one of the contestants. According to the latest reports, his character is said to be visually impaired. The new poster had all the fans, well-wishers and friends of the team congratulating Vihan on marking his second entry in Sandalwood. Meanwhile, Ganesh’s daughter Charitrya has also already forayed into acting with her debut with the Ganesh-Suni collaboration Chamak in 2017.
Ganesh, fondly called the Golden Star, was last seen in Geetha, in which he was paired with Prayaga Martin and Shanvi Srivatsava. The movie narrated the story of two lovers, destined to be together. The movie was well-received and the critics praised Ganesh’s performance. But the actor rose to fame with ’99, the Kannada remake of ’96 in which Bhavana was paired opposite him.
