Bengaluru: For seasoned actor ‘Rangayana’ Raghu, his latest cinematic outing ‘Family Pack’ has literally turned out been an ‘out of this world’ experience.
Recalling his experiences portraying a ghost in the Kannada movie, Raghu said there is never a dull moment in ‘Family Pack’.
“I play an unconventional ghost in the movie. It has emotions, it feels anger, happiness, sorrow, greed. Slowly I start interfering in the affairs of two families. That’s how the name ‘Family Pack’ came about. With a twist in the tale taking place every half an hour, I found my role and the story very interesting.” Raghu told IANS.
Raghu reveals that he had to do a lot of homework on the role, and yet leave room for improvisation on sets. The fluid nature of his on-screen character meant that the rest of the crew had to keep a check on their reactions while canning the shots.
“As per the story requirements I am visible and audible to two persons only on screen. This meant all the other on-screen characters must not respond to any of my dialogues or gestures. The slightest involuntary response from even one of the other actors would result in a retake,” he explained.
‘Family Pack’ is a part of Prime Video’s recent multi-film announcement with PRK Productions which will be available exclusively for Prime Members worldwide from February 17. The three-film announcement is an ode to the craft and legacy of the late actor and filmmaker Puneeth Rajkumar whose contribution to cinema stands unmatched.
Directed by Arjun Kumar S and produced under the banner of Sri. Puneeth Rajkumar’s PRK Productions, the ‘Family Pack’ features actors Rangayana Raghu, Amruta Iyengar and Likith Shetty in the lead.
