Super star of Kannada cinema Shivarajakumar is working for the first time with top director of younger generation Soori in 'Kaddi Pudi' returns to underworld subject once again.
Shivarajakumar supporting the title 'Kaddi Pudi' when objection was raised by a few of the media friends said when the film is watched as a whole the observations would change.
Shivarajakumar has two shades of a family man and fierce attacker. In the attacks he makes it is against the system that disturbs his family. It is the chewing of tobacco 'Kaddi Pudi' that gives a kick. In the real life also 'Kaddi Pudi' is a kick giving product. There is very close reference to the character and title of the film. I play the role of Kaddi Pudi Rangamajji grandson. My grandmother was seller of this tobacco. Secondly the tobacco chewed in the villages is common.
Meanwhile Shivarajakumar is very happy on a few scenes described to him by director Soori. They are so near touching. I have to readjust to this young director with lot of home work. An iota of over confidence I should not possess.
For 'Kaddi Pudi' Shivarajakumar get the screen name as 'Anand'. Anand was the first film name of Shivarajakumar. Director Soori watched this movie when he was 7th standard. He became a fan of Shivanna from that time. So he picked the film name as character name. Likewise Soori gets the actress Jamuna character name Uma from 'Sakshatkaara' Kannada cinema that starred Dr Rajakumar and Prithvi Raj Kapoor in the direction of SR Puttanna Kanagal. The role of 'Uma' in the film is haunting me even to this day says Soori.
