At a cinema in Mandya, the sugar bowl of southern Karnataka, the audience bursts into whistles when Nikhil Gowda delivers a line about a farmer—how he is the real innovator. A family entertai­ner with the usual commercial tropes, Seetharama Kalyana is the 29-year-old’s second Kannada film in the lead role. The buzz, however, is over whether Nikhil, son of Karnataka chief mini­ster H.D. Kumaraswamy, will make his political debut in Mandya in this summer’s Lok Sabha elections.

Indications that the third generation of H.D. Deve Gowda’s family were being groomed for a political career have been there for a while. So, speculation about Nikhil is swirling in Mandya. There’s an equal amount of curiosity about cousin Prajwal Revanna debuting from neighbouring Hassan, the family stronghold.
