Anant Nag back to silver screen after two decades
After a hiatus of two decades, Anant Nag is back on the silver screen playing a major role in Janleva 555 that hits the screens on 19 October (2012).
Says Sandeep who was the associate director of the Anant-starrer Kannada film Manasella Neene, ďItís an honour to have him in my debut Hindi directorial venture. When I narrated the subject to him, he immediately agreed upon it. Actually itís very difficult to convince an actor of his caliber because he doesnít accept anything. Fortunately, he loved the concept and immediately gave his nod,Ē
Confirming the same, Nagís spokesperson said, ďAnant agreed to play the character of a holistic healer in this film because he felt that the role was full-fledged and challenging. Heís a stickler for perfection. During the shoot, although he was superb in the first take itself though he repeatedly requested two more takes to bring a bit of perfection.Ē
Nag, who started his acting career with Shyam Benegalís National Award-winning films like Ankur, Bhumika and Manthan, had done a small role in Mani Ratnamís Yuva. He also did a Marathi film Anahat directed by Amol Palekar and an English film Stumble.
Janleva 555 also stars Kalpna Pandit, Cliff Janke, Rajeev, Willy Manchanda, Shona Chabra, Mann Hora, Anant Joshi and Vaseem. Incidentally, yesteryear actress Vyjantimala makes a brief appearance in the film.
