From Tulu Nadu to Kannada cinema
rjun Kapikad, son of veteran Tulu theatre person Devdas Kapikad is now making his debut in Kannada cinema with Madhura Swapna.

The tall guy from Mangaluru is confident that the Kannada film Madhura Swapna will do him a world of good and get him more opportunities as he says his role in the film has all elements that the audiences could expect.

Arjun Kapikad has played the lead role in Tulu film Rang that ran for 100 days in Mangaluru. Yet another Tulu film of his Chalipolilu has completed 70 days of successful run at the box-office in Mangaluru.

“I am doing an untitled Tulu film and I intend to do at least one Tulu film a year. Besides, I have signed a Tulu film titled Chandikori that will begin shot in May,” he said.

Arjun Kapikad, who has completed his MBA from S D M College in Mangaluru, feels that he found a visible difference in working styles between Tulu cinema and Kannada cinema. “The basic difference is language and I am new to this Bengaluru slang. I am trying to pick it up to be able to accept more Kannada films. Mangalureans watch each and every minute details when they see a Tulu film and I am yet to see it works in Kannada,” he said.

Arjun Kapikad’s father Devdas Kapikad runs the drama troupe Chaaparka and has the distinction of working in 49 Tulu plays and staging more than 18,000 shows all over the world. Devdas Kapikad has worked in a few Kannada films that include Venkata in Sankata and Toofan among others.

Arjun Kapikad has recently opened his own restaurant and has christened it Kapikads. “While I dream of running this hotel business on my own and starting our chain of restaurants, my passion is to act in front of the camera and showcase my talent,” he signs off.
