Prahlad Kakkar makes acting debut with ‘David’February 9th, 2012 - 2:41 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Feb 9 (IANS) Ad guru Prahlad Kakkar has found a new vocation — he has turned into an actor and plays a priest in his first film.
He joined the cast and crew of Bejoy Nambiar’s “David” in Mangalore and showed no signs of nervousness while facing the camera.
Nambiar said: “We have a very interesting debutant actor with us today. Prahlad Kakkar plays a priest in my film. I cast him because I thought he looked like a Catholic priest. I was right. Prahlad just slipped into the role like a priest in a gown.”
Nambiar began shooting last week with Tamil superstar Vikram playing the title role.
The director is so impressed with the ad guru’s acting prowess that he has decided to cast him in cameos in all his films.
“Prahlad shows no signs of selfconsciousness before the camera. That could be because he has directed ads with the biggest superstars of the acting world like Bachchan Saab (Amitabh Bachchan) and Aamir Khan and celebrities from the non-acting field like Sachin Tendulkar,” he said.
