The maverick director of Kannada film industry
Duniya Soori has introduced this film actor Vicky in his latest flick Kendasampige. This year has been really a good year for all the new debutants in Sandalwood. The new actors were not trained in acting, but their talent and good acting have really impressed the viewers. The new hero in Sandalwood is Vicky among them. His real name is Santhosh. This actor had changed name to Vicky with this new film. Hereafter the Kannada film industry will know Santhosh by Vicky always. Santhosh, who made his Sandalwood debut through Kendasampige was actually Soori's driver and associate director in the past. When the director was on a lookout for a new face for the film Kendasampige, he felt Santhosh could fit into the character and could also become an ideal actor. Thus, the director gave him an offer and Santhosh too readily agreed to play the role of a lover in the film opposite another new debutante lady Manvita Harish (Shwetha). It was difficult for him to reject the offer and thus the actor came to limelight. As he has not signed any film so far, one can only hope that many new promising scripts will be in his hands soon. His parents, who were movie buffs allowed Santhosh to see a movie every week without fail. That is how he developed an interest in films. The dream turned into passion and he managed to get introduced to Yograj Bhat (who was working as assistant director to Duniya Soori). Thus Vicky (Santhosh) became another team member in director Soori’s team.
Although he has been getting offers, his motive is to direct a movie soon. He has seen few scripts and hope to make it work along with other colleagues involved in the whole team of director Duniya Soori. Apart from listening to music, his passion is to learn everything about films. One has to watch and see what this new actor has for the film lovers.
