Moodbidri: Double Treat for Tulu Fans as Padil - Kapikad Come Together on Stage

Daijiworld Media Network – Moodubidri (PS)
Moodbidri, Nov 22:
It was a double bonanza for fans of Tulu theatre as comedy duo Naveen D Padil and Devadas Kapikad came together on the single stage for a drama.
Tulu fans who flocked Samaja Mandira on Wednesday November 21 evening were overjoyed to watch the two stalwarts of Tulu theatre performing in the comedy play 'Pudar Deetiji'.

Padil as the deaf Bubanna and Kapikad as a bank employee regaled the jam-packed audience. The play was thoroughly enjoyed by the entire crowd.
Many fans from Mumbai too flocked the venue to watch the two actors in action. Journalist B K Ashraf Valpady who has written many plays and staged dramas every year created history this time by bringing Padil and Kapikad together.

It may be recalled that Naveen Padil had earlier parted ways with Cha Parka troupe and joined Lakumi troupe and had established himself with his performance in ‘Ganguna Gammath’ Tulu drama. A scene wherein Padil at last stands half-dressed and speaks his heart out brought out an artiste with immense power. He went on to gain popularity in cinema and serials.
It was Devadas Kapikad, a state-level award winning artiste with his amazing sense of humor who gave a witty touch to Tulu dramas.

When the two were seen together again, it sparked speculations whether Padil was into Cha Parka again with Kapikad. When Daijiworld contacted Padil, he brushed aside the possibility and said that he was a part of all Tulu troupes.

"I am part of all the Tulu troupes, and there is nothing like 'joining' Cha Parka," he said, adding that currently he is busy with a Tulu movie.

    I don't think Padil should work under Kapikad. Both are kings in their own field. We have been getting competitive entertainment. Let this continue. But events(they coming together) like this are very rare. Lucky people who have witnessed this drama.

    It is in the best interest of Tulu drama lovers and Mr. Kapikad and Mr. Padil to be together. They gel well and they must keep aside thier differences. It is indeed a joy to see they have come together again. Hopefully stay that way is my prayer and request.

    Sri Devdas Kapikad and Sri Naveen Padil are two eyes of Tulunadu and Tulu Language/culture.Because of them now a days several Tulu language films are produced.Their contributions to Tulu Language,culture and entertainment media is immense. Moddbidri Samaja Mandira Sabha (R)which is a home for cultural activities might be buzz with these two Tulu stalwarts.Well done Sri Kapikad and Padil......
