Tanana nanana nana naaaaaa....tanana...nana..nana..naaaa...This music in famous serial Malgudi Days is part of every child born in 80s, based on short stories by prolific writer R.K. Narayan. Remember Swami from #malgudidays who was always ready to skip the school and scared of his father played by #girishkarnad in most of the episodes.
Swami's real name is Manjunath Nayaker. He was born in Bangalore, India and has worked in lot of Kannada and Hindi cinema as child artist. He also played younger version of #amitabhbachchan in the film #agneepath.
When he turned 19 he left the films to concentrate on his education. He became a PR professional and worked for Mysore Infrastructure Corridor Project. Later he quit the job and started his own PR consultancy firm. He married Swarnarekha, who is a sprinter and long jumper by profession.
Manjunath's aka Swamy's parents were strict about his education therefore allowed him to work during holidays only. Malgudi Days was also directed by #shankarnag during holidays of 1985 and 1986. Shankar was a brilliant actor and director but unfortunately died in a car crash in September 1990. He married actress #arundhatinag , (who played role of a matured and supportive mother to #vidyabalan in the film #paa )
