    Wow!Nice to see that Tulu's are coming together in Nigeria for this. When I visited Lagos last year I roamed around the city with a armoured escort as it was painted by my host that it is risky to go out all alone. Now seeing this I'm amazed how the people enjoying their stay in a difficult country by coming together.

    No doubt he is very talented actor with large no of fan followers. He should try different roles rather than sticking to typical roles in dramas. People like versatality in acting. I like his initial years drams than latest numbers. Lack of script or split in troupe could be the reason. All the best and He is great comedian.......

    Mr Naveen Padil, know him, seen him since childhood running around Hamaba store Gorigudda, he had lot of humor since childhood. Wondering how he became Naveen Padil? Why not Naveen Gorigudda.
