Kannada actor Suman Nagarkar may have moved to the United States more than a decade and half ago but that hasn’t deterred her love for movies; particularly Sandalwood films. In a recent interview to a leading daily, the gorgeous actor said that she visits Bengaluru often.

The actor went on to reveal that she recently played a role in a Kannada short film, Gray, which is about piracy and how it affects the film industry as a whole. On this, she was quoted by the Deccan Chronicle as saying, “We recently did a short film in the US called Grey — it’s about piracy and how it affects the film industry. It’s a Kannada project with English subtitles and was released on YouTube.”

On how the Kannada movie industry has evolved, Suman said that she is happy to see films like Ayana, Shuddhi and Urvi being made and is glad that there is a shift from the usual formulaic films.

When asked about her interest to don the greasepaint again for films, Suman Nagarkar said that she would enjoy taking up roles that offer fodder to her acting skills and disliked roles such as hero or heroine’s mom, sister-in-law etc unless they form a substantial part of the plot.

While her interest in movies remains intact, Suman has also turned out to be an avid marathoner. She said that her love for it began in 2007 and so far she has completed 50 half marathons and 15 full marathons. She adds that her husband and 72-year-old mom are also avid marathoners just like her.

On Bengaluru, the actor said that the city has changed so much that she finds it difficult to connect to it at times. She rued that people should start speaking their mother tongue more often instead of English.
