Director Amol Palekar finds Nag's sensitive depiction of the King's dilemmas to have greatly enhanced the multi-faceted complexities of the film. The character portrayed by Nag has depth and dimension, powerfully drawing you into the core of the story that is *Anahat. His entry into Kannada films was through legendary G. V. Iyer's Hamsa Geethe Hamsa Geethe is one of the most critically acclaimed of all his movies which is about trysts of a learner whose greatest search is finding the right Guru.
