Vasishta N Simha has done a lot of Kannada films. He was a software engineer but was attracted to film industry so he quit his job and joined Kannada films. He got recognized in the role of the main antagonist in the film ‘Raja Huli’. But it was his role of the thug Ranganna in Godhi Banna Sadharna Mykattu that has made him really popular. People have started noticing and recognizing him. Reportedly he was to play the role of the character that was played by Rakshit Shetty the film. But director Hemanth felt that Vasishta would suit Ranganna’s role better. As Vasishta is attracted to gray characters he readily agreed to play that character. Vasishta had known Anil Kumar very well and has fond memories of his. So he readily agreed to dub for the character played by Anil Kumar in the film Masti Gudi. The actor will be seen next in Ramesh Aravind directorial Gandu Endare Gandu. He dreams of acting with directors like Bala and Imtiaz Ali someday.
