He is one short of completing his century in a career spanning more than two decades. No we are not talking about a cricketer but about Sandalwood actor Shivaraj Kumar, whose 99th film Mylari is all set to hit screens across South India this Friday. According to reports in the media, Shivanna will play six roles in his upcoming film. Confirming this news to the media is the actor himself who says that he is being reintroduced in the Kannada film industry when he is almost going to complete filming hundred films!
At 49 years of age, Shivaraj Kumar will also portray the role of a college boy. While that sounds surprising, the actor is not worried at all because he has complete faith in his director R Chandru and also feels that his upcoming project Mylari has a strong script which will be loved by the audience and the critics. While the college boy is one among the six avatars that Shivaraj Kumar has adopted in Mylari, another shows him matching steps to peppy numbers for the Kannada screen. The actor promises to introduce some new dance steps in his upcoming project.
Since so much effort has gone into the making of the upcoming Sandalwood project, isn"t Shivaraj Kumar upset over the fact that the release of Mylari has been stalled for a week? No, shoots the 49- year-old actor and adds that he is rather happy about the delay in release date because this will mean that Mylari plays in theaters during Christmas, which may attract more audiences to theaters. Shivanna sure sounds upbeat about Mylari.
