Diganth and Aindrita lead the cast of Thimayya & Thimayya
Thimayya and Thimayya, Diganth's latest film, releases in theatres on December 2. The team had a celebrity premiere earlier this week, to show the film to their friends from the industry. Here are glimpses from the premiere night.
No stopping Diganth
Even though leading man Diganth is nursing a torn tendon and has his left leg in a cast, there was no way he would miss the premiere of his film. Armed with a walker, the actor made his way to the venue, along with his wife and co-star, Aindrita Ray.
Diganth is one half of the two Thimayyas in the film
Diganth plays Vinci Thimayya, the grandson of Sr Thimayya, played by Anant Nag. This is Diganth's fifth film with Anant. The film revolves around the relationship dynamic of the duo.
Shubra Aiyappa is back in Kannada cinema
Remember the No Problem song from Shivarajkumar's Vajrakaya and the leggy lass that he was wooing in it. Well, she's back now as one of the two ladies in Vinci Thimayya's (Diganth) life. Shubra plays Sowmya, Vinci's fiancee in the film.
Jyotsana is a far cry from the bubbly roles I have done earlier: Aindrita
Aindrita Ray has been speaking very highly about her role in Thimayya & Thimayya. The actress plays Jyotsana, Vinci's neighbour, who shares a certain camraderie with him. She becomes the catalyst in getting Vinci and Sr Thimayya to bond again after years apart.
Jordindian's Vineeth Beep Kumar is Diganth's bestie in the film
One half of the popular YouTube comics Jordindian, Vineeth, who was last seen on the big screen in Danish Sait's One Cut Two Cut, gets a better and meatier role in Thimayya & Thimayya. Vineeth plays Andy, Vinci's best buddy and budding realtor.
Director Gurudatta Ganiga's on the production team
Gurudatta Ganiga, who co-directed Ambi Ning Vayasayytho along with Kiccha Sudeep's nephew Sanchith, helped with the production co-ordination of Thimayya & Thimayya. He's not given up on direction and will be making his own film soon.
Anoop Seelin's music is a USP of the film
Anoop Seelin is the music composer of the film and has even sung most of the numbers in it. His music has been widely appreciated.
Captain of the ship
Thimayya & Thimayya is the directorial debut of Sanjay Sharma, an ad-maker-turned-filmmaker. His research about the history of cafes for a corporate project, led him to writing the script of the film. His brother Rajesh Sharma has produced the film.
Nidhi Subbaiah supports her Pancharangi co-star Diganth
A film that has two of her favourite co-stars, Diganth and Anant Nag was not something to be missed for Pancharangi actress Nidhi Subbaiah.
Movie time for Rishi
Rishi, who is just back from an anniversary holiday with his wife, was spotted at the Thimayya & Thimayya premiere on Tuesday night.
Kiran Srinivas spotted at the premiere
Diganth's Kaanchaana co-star and good pal Kiran Srinivas, who now lives in Mumbai with his wife and actress Hitha Chandrashekar, was at the premiere to support his friend. Kiran is very rarely seen in Kannada movie circles these days, so, seeing him was a pleasant surprise for many.
All for a favourite co-star
Sathish Ninasam has done multiple films with Diganth, like, Manasaare, Pancharangi, Lifeu Ishten and Kaanchaana and has a good rapport with the latter. He was all praise for the film after the premiere.
From TV to the big screen
TV actor Venkatesh Sriram makes his big screen debut with Thimayya & Thimayya. He plays Diganth's uncle and Anant Nag's son in the film.
