Muniyappa's dream to fund his yet-to-be completed debut movie Challenger backfired after he was arrested for kidnapping and blackmailing two engineering students, Eshan Bapat and one of his girl classmates. Eshan, a second year student at the Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Technology in Yelahanka, is the son of the managing director of the Kirloskar Electric company here. Muniyappa (29), a resident of Singapura Layout near M S Palya, Hasan Dongri (26), also a wannabe actor, and three others were arrested in Yelahanka on Sunday. The plot is no less from any potboiler. Dongri, who earlier worked as a personal assistant to a Kannada heroine, was in need of money to complete his film Beera.
