The third generation of artists and technicians is rare to find. It is there in Andhra Pradesh and it is there in Karnataka too. To quote a few examples we have the Subbaiya Naidu family (Lokesh, Srujan Lokesh), Y R Swamy (Lakshmi, Aishwarya), Shanker Singh family (Protima Devi, SV Rajendra Singh Babu, Aditya) we find the third generations. Dr Rajakumar grandson Vinay Raghavendra Rajakumar is entering the tinsel town somewhere this year. But hat trick hero Shivarajakumar daughter Nivedhita granddaughter of Dr Rajakumar already won the state award for her performance in ‘Andaman’ Kannada cinema working Papa Shivarajakumar.
Now we have granddaughter of Make Up Naani and Bhargavi Narayan highly adored artists – daughter of actress Sudha Belawadi – Samyuktha Belawadi entering the field of acting in a Kannada film ‘Life Ishtene’.
Pawan who worked with Yogaraj Bhat the top ranking director for a few films is turning independent director. Diganth is the counterpart to Samyuktha Belawadi who looks very sweet like her father Sathya.
Natural acting of Bhargavi Narayan has come in the blood of Sudha Belwadi the mother of over 25 films in Kannada so far ever since ‘Mungaru Male’ in 2006.
Samyuktha Belawadi maternal uncle is a very stylish and intelligent film director in Kannada cinema. That is Prakash Belawadi who is basically an engineering graduate later became director and his ‘Stumble’ earned laurels for him. He is an authority on a few topics in cinema and he is a respected teacher in film making.
So, let us welcome the beautiful teenage Samyuktha Belawadi. Her mother Sudha Belawadi is a known personality. Sudha Belawadi speaking to media persons a few days ago at Mangalore disclosed her willingness to take up theatre plays. That is only after two years because my son is studying in 10th standard she quipped.
