Naresh Kumar: An emerging British actor’s American odyssey…

Naresh Kumar: An emerging British actor’s American odyssey…

October 5 2016

He first starred in a stylish drugs and corruption caper made in Canada and decided to set up in New York and break into the American film and TV market…

NARESH KUMAR is pushing some buttons right now and not just on his phone.

The 20-something actor has signed a raft projects that should see him take the next step up on his Stateside acting journey.

He has also moved into production and yesterday saw the premiere of a film he stars in and has shaped along with the creative cohorts who make up his and his professional partner’s fledgling production company – See in Color Productions.

Cyber-Versity” – the name of this film is – was shown at IBM in New York yesterday (October 4) and then will be screened again at cyber-protection giants Symantec (Norton) in Silicon Valley tomorrow (October 6).

Both were aired during conferences discussing women and minority underrepresentation in the industry and this month has been designated National Cybersecurity Awareness.

It’s a very busy time for Kumar – he’s just starred in a TV Show for Amazon called “RxD” which will be out in 2017 and there’s a supporting role in “Grey’s Disconnect” a feature that will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival next year.

And in the summer, he will be one of the main actors in “182 Kanishka”, the story about the 1985 downed Air India jet which saw 329 lives being lost in what was before 9/11, the worst terrorist incident involving an aircraft.

“I am finding the US film industry exhilarating and there is a lot of opportunity for not only British actors, but someone of my ‘type’.

I’m defined as ‘ethnically ambiguous’ which opens the door for more roles because of my versatility,” said Kumar who grew up in the Midlands and moved to the US in early 2015.

The short film premiering tomorrow was commissioned by Coventus Corporation and the International Consortium of Minority Cybersecurity Professionals (ICMCP) and has two main aims. The first is to raise general awareness about the issue of cybersecurity and focuses on an identity theft scenario and how easily it can happen to anyone. The other is to also highlight the lack of diversity in the cybersecurity profession more generally.

The film, an action type thriller, will act as a calling card for fundraising and creating greater awareness about both about tackling the general ignorance about cyber security and the lack of diversity in the profession.

“We wanted to create a story that everyone could relate to whether they were familiar with the field of cybersecurity or not,” said Kumar.

He’s come quite a way since leaving his family base in the Midlands and starting out as a model at university before taking the professional plunge to be an actor. He had a spell in Mumbai too, both acting and modelling, but decided his favoured and ultimate destination is Hollywood.

The relatively new production house has some commercials and other corporate type videos in the works and is also developing other projects, including a Bollywood crossover movie, and documentaries.
