As per the reliable sources, Gautam Krishna’s onscreen name is confirmed as ‘Gautam’. It is learnt that the decision was taken by Mahesh based on numerology.
Apparently, Mahesh is overseeing the shooting part of his son and making sure that the boy is comfortable facing the camera. He even advised Sukumar to be prepared with an alternative for Gautam in case if the kid is averse to shoot. Luckily, Gautam cooperated with the unit and has been shooting continuously for the past three days.
Good to see, Gautam following the footsteps of his father at a very young age. Mahesh too debuted as child artiste in his father Krishna’s film ‘Needa’ in the year 1979. Who would have expected that his son will be repeating the same act after 34 years? That’s what life is all about!
