Mumbai: Popular Malayalam heartthrob actor Nishan Nanaiah is all set to pave his way through to the hearts of Bollywood with film Badlapur Boys. He has played the role of a villager youth named Vijay in the movie.
Talking about this Kabaddi based film Badlapur Boys, Nishan says, “The film seems realistic in just a single glance because all the characters are simple and true. It is a story about some boys in a village who know nothing else but Kabaddi and who do nothing else but play Kabaddi. They keep losing to other villages and are a laughing stock for the people but they are too lost in the game to stop playing. And right with this madness for the game, these boys do something that changes the history of their village.”
Nishan, who debuted in Malayalam film Ritu in the year 2009, was a Tennis player in his University days and has now played the role of a Kabaddi player. So, how was the experience of playing Kabaddi in Badlapur Boys?
He says, “It was great fun, but with its own share of bruises and injuries. We were trained by a professional Kabaddi coach. I’m very hopeful that the audience will enjoy Badlapur Boys’ Kabaddi.”
Having acted in Malayalam, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu movies, Nishan’s character in Badlapur Boys is that of a goody two shoes, simple guy and in real life, too, he seems shy and reserved. Is it the influence of his character or is he like that in real life? His answer to this question is just a sincere smile.
Nishan completed his acting training from Pune Film Institute and acted in his debut film Ritu, which was critically acclaimed and won Nishan the award for best debut for the year 2009. His second film Apoorvaragam (2010) was in theaters for 100 days.
Made by Karrm Movies, Badlapur Boys has been produced by Satish Pillangwad and directed by Shailesh Verma. It releases on 12th December.
