Looks like actor Sampath and Prakash Raj have a lot in common. Prakash, who was earlier supposed to play an important role in Yogaraj Bhat’s Kannada flick Drama, opted out of the film, making way for Sampath. And now, Sampath will take on a role played by Prakash in Brindavana, the Kannada remake of Brindavanam.
The film, which stars Darshan, Karthika Nair and Milana Nagaraj in lead roles, will have Sampath playing a pivotal character. Sampath says, “I play Karthika’s father in the film, a role which was originally essayed by Prakash, with Kajal Aggarwal playing his daughter. It is an important role and my character has varied shades. I wouldn’t call it a negative role, but it’s not a stereotypical father role either.”
