Udayan Aparajeet – Odisha boy now Kannada film hero

Udayan Aparajeet is the first Odia boy to become a Kannada film hero who will act with Sunil and Sanjana Naidu in ‘Kiladi – The Game Changer’ movie.

This cinema is based on a real life incident. The story revolves around two boys and a girl. 80 percent of the story is real and 20 percent is added by director Sharan Kabbur.

Udayan was working in a post production house as Managing Director, but left the well settled job since 2 years to give a try for acting. He has given more than 150 auditions before getting this chance. It’s been very difficult to compete with 1000s of local people being an outsider.

Udayan learnt the language, changed the way he look …almost has become one of the Kannadiga.

Producer Vikesh Nani is investing more than Rs 1.5 crore on this film. Satish Kannadi has written the screenplay and dialogues. Shree Manju is music director and Dhanush is the cameraman of ‘Kiladi’ movie. Shooting will take place at Bengaluru, Chickmagalur and Kuduremukh.

Udayan Aparajeet originally belongs to Jajpur district of Odisha. He has done a film-making course from Mumbai. He has eight years of behind the camera experience in different departments of film making in Bollywood, Kannada, Tamil, Bengali and Odia film industry.

Best of luck to Udayan Aparajeet for his upcoming movie!
