Gagan Godgal has begun his journey in the entertainment industry as a small time actor in theatre plays. He has been engaged in theatre activities since 2005 and had obtained a diploma in Theater Arts from Ninasam Theater Institute, Heggodu, Shimoga.

It was a daily routine work for him to give audition for the movies or the television series. After a long struggle, he was able to find feet by grabbing small roles in Sandalwood and even in Bollywood too. It is said that he acted in a scene with Arshad Warsi.

He got a similar offer earlier for ‘ Parapancha’ Kannada movie which was directed by Yogaraj Bhat. The film was released in 2016 and had Diganth, Ragini Dwivedi, and Anant Nag in lead roles. It is always said ‘slow and steady’ wins the race and this actor has now started getting recognition in Kannada cinema. He has acted even in few Kannada TV serials.

This actor made his presence felt with his role in the movie ' Tora Tora' which was directed by Harsh Gowda. The film has a pool of talented artists from the theater and one could see that every actor had to just react to the situation that is happening in the movie.

The film shows a bunch of youngsters who stumble upon a Time Machine which they decided to steal. Like other actors, Gagan too had to perform comedy role in the movie and bring laughter to the scenes.

Yash Shetty Kannada Actor

Yash Shetty

Yash Shetty is an Indian actor who predominantly acts in Kannada movies. Remember his role as Sainath Rao in the movie 'Noorondu Nenapu' which has been directed by Kumaresh M and released in 2017.  This film is a remake of Sanjay Jadhav's Marathi film ‘Duniyadari’ based on a novel by Suhas Shirvalkar, which goes by the same name. Later on, one can easily identify with the character of ‘Solution’ aka Yash Shetty in Prithvi Konanur's award-winning movie 'Railway Children' (2016). To play the role of Sainath Rao, he had to add extra weight to his physique and even had his face totally shaved off. Yash Shetty can easily venture an incredibly complex part that demands any actor to convey turbulent emotions well beyond even artistic imagination. His role as Sainath Rao simply moved the Kannada audiences. Sometimes, he is too loud, harsh and rigid in the character, which makes the performance all the more heartbreaking. He wants to give a touch of variety in his every role that he performs as he thinks that variety is the spice of life too!  After his mind-blowing performance in 'Noorondu Nenapu', he has been flooded with offers. Above all,  he is getting 'thumbs up' from his fans across the state now.  He will be soon seen in movies like ‘Samhara’ and ‘Atharva’, where he will be essaying negative roles. Also, he will be portraying a doctor character in ‘Trataka’, and in ‘Saligrama’, he will be playing an elderly black magician. In each of this character, he has to have different body languages and different faces too. Finally, one must give him credit for his performance in ‘Railway Children’ where he looked really brutish and like a gangster who could play ruthlessly with the kids’ imaginary vision and mold them as spoilt brats. His one look was enough to tell us the story of a street villain!
