Chocolate Hero Diganth who is busy with his Bollywood project Wedding Pullav is back in Bengaluru for the audio and teaser release of Minchagi Neenu Baralu, a two-year-old project in which he is paired opposite the gorgeous Kriti Kharbanda, for the first time on the silver screen. While he was excited about the project which will shortly release, Diganth couldn’t stop praising his co-star Kriti. “Finally there is someone who really compliments me on the big screen. We had such great chemistry that though the film was yet to release, we did more than a dozen commercial photo shoots together,” said Diganth. Many were a bit taken aback by his open praise and asked whether he will get into trouble with his ‘favourite’ co-star and friend Aindrita Ray. Diganth of course, replied in a lighter tone, that he will somehow manage it later!
Three friends from Mumbai — Ranadip Shantharam Mahadik, Mahesh Talakadu and Mahesh Kumar Jaswal are jointly producing the venture.
