Shivarajkumar has been involved with the industry for 32 years, and still one of the busiest actors in Kannada film industry. The actor is popularly known as Shivanna, who believes in being friends with his co-stars. The actor recently talked about working with young actors in the industry and that he doesn’t want to be called a mentor.
The actor said, “I have worked with, I think Manvitha (Harish), Vasishta (N Simha) and Dhananjaya show a lot of promise. They all have a lot of potential and are very sincere about their work. Even Rashmika (Mandanna) is very promising and a very charming girl. I saw her perform at an award function and told her that she dances very well. Rachita Ram and I featured in the same TV show, and she’s also very good”.
Talking about mentoring, the actor said, “I can’t be a mentor. I don’t think that I have reached a level where I can be a guru or godfather. I don’t like thinking of myself that way. When I’m on set, I ensure that I make everyone comfortable. They shouldn’t feel intimidated about working with a senior actor. We are all like friends, and I want to be young with them”.
