Recently there were reports that HD Kumaraswamy left for Belgium to visit the shooting of his son Nikhil Kumar's film Jaguar. It created a minor storm as there were serious political developments and the former chief minister was going to a film shooting at that time.
Now current Chief Minister Siddaramaiah is going to Belgium to see his son Rakesh who is hospitalised there. While Nikhil is making his film debut, Kumarswamy was a producer even before he became a politician. Rakesh is however not new to films.
He wanted to be an actor and started acting in the lead role in Nanage Neenu Ninage Naanu 15 years ago. But the film was shelved after the producer asked Suddaramaiah to fund it. Siddaramaiah said no to fund his son's film career. Now Siddaramaiah is going to Belgium to see his son, just like Kumaraswamy did, but for a different reason and not for films.
