It is an individual’s love for the nation and his/her commitment to it’s progress and not rules or acts that can ensure it’s welfare and what better day than today to drive home the point?” explains actor Jaggesh while letting us in on the plot of his film Agraja that goes on floors on the occasion of Independence Day.
The film, he feels, will get people to think of what they have been doing to rid the country of corruption. “It is no good pointing out the challenges that we are faced with. It is high time we discipline ourselves, abide by existing rules and set situations right. We are hoping to motivate people to do just that through our film,” says the actor.
Actor Darshan is also joining hands with Jaggesh in spreading this message. “He will be seen making a special appearance. He essays the role of an IAS officer and his character is something to watch out for,” he enthuses.
While Jaggesh has shared screen space with other leading men like Ambareesh, Ravichandran, Shivarajkumar, Ramesh Arvind, Komal and even acted in a film directed by Upendra, this will be the first time that we will see him and Darshan come together for a film. Agraja is being directed by Sri Nandan and Editor Govardhan is turning producer with this film. “We dedicate this film to all those activists and freedom fighters, who have strived hard for the welfare of the nation. On the occasion of the launch of our film, we also wish to thank all those who have made significant contributions to Kannada cinema,” adds Jaggesh. Parul and Kamana Jethmalani are the leading ladies.
Jaggesh has two other projects in hand. “There is Guru, which I am producing for my son. I have decided to complete the entire project in 60 days and this has meant non-stop work and I also have to wrap up the shoot for Cool Ganesha,” says the actor giving us an update on his call sheet.
