Fresh off the success of Katheyondu Shuruvagide, Diganth is excited about his next movie Fortuner, which will be his first release post marrying actress Aindrita Ray. He will be seen in the role of a college drop-out in the romantic-family drama which has Sonu Gowda and Swathi Sharma as female leads.
"I play the role of a spoilt brat, whose father is an MLA. Basically, he is a big-time liar, boosts himself of doing a lot of things, but in reality, he does nothing. A girl falls in love with him and they get married, but the marriage is built on lies. After his wedding, he is shown the door from his house. The life becomes difficult as he doesn't have money. There comes a situation whether his wife, parents and everyone is upset with him. What happens to him and how he comes back on his feet is the story," Diganth tells International Business Times, India.
The actor realises that there are expectations from Fortuner following the success of his previous film, but is confident about its success. "I feel this one is up to the mark. Whoever loved Katheyondu Shuruvagide will definitely like this movie. I am hoping it will do well," he adds while stating that there was no special preparation required for his role.
Diganth and Sonu Gowda had worked in Lifeu Ishtene and will be sharing screen space again after eight years. "We were supposed to work in 2-3 movies. But things did not fall in place. So, when this happened I was really happy because I have known her for a very long time," Diganth adds.
The actor, whose status recently changed from 'single' to married,' has a few interesting projects in hand. Notably, he will be working on Kunal Kohli's movie on Hindu mythology Ramayana.
"It is called Ram Yug. We shot it in two parts. It is a different treatment to Ramayan, powered with CGI. People will enjoy the new-age take on the mythology and the way we show Lanka or Ayodhya," Diganth stated while also mentioning that the movie will hit the theatres in April.
On being asked whether his life has changed after marriage, Diganth says, "I am enjoying the moment, but nothing has changed. I will be in a position to tell you more about it maybe after six months."
