Shankar Nagarkatte (9 November 1954 – 30 September 1990), popularly known as Shankar Nag, was an Indian film actor, screenwriter, director, producer and philanthropist who worked primarily in the Kannada film industry. Besides films, he established himself as a writer and actor in Television and theater. He directed and acted in the most talked-about teleserial, ''Malgudi Days'', based on celebrated novelist R.K.Narayan's short stories. He co-wrote ''22 June 1897'', an Indian national award-winning Marathi film.
Shankar Nagarkatte was born on 9 November 1954 in Honnavara, Uttara Kannada, Mysore State. His parents were Anandi and Sadanand Nagarkatte. His elder brother is the popular Kannada actor Anant Nag. After completing formal education, Shankar moved to Mumbai. In Mumbai, he was attracted to Marathi theatre and immersed himself in theatrical activities. Incidentally, he met his future wife, Arundhathi during a drama rehearsal.
Shankar Nag then shifted base to Karnataka. His elder brother Anant Nag had already established himself as an actor and urged Shankar to act in films. He was offered a role of a mercenary by Girish Karnad in the epic movie, ''Ondanondu Kaladalli'', which was loosely based on Akira Kurosawa's masterpiece, ''Seven Samurai''. His debut film as actor fetched him a national award at the Delhi International Film Festival. Thus began his film career, where, in a span of 12 years (from 1978 to 1990) he acted in some 80 Kannada movies, as a leading man, besides co-producing (with actor-brother Anant Nag) and directing some films like ''Minchina Ota'' (a rare example of a heist movie in Kannada), ''Janma Janmada Anubandha'' and ''Geetha'' (both of which had music by South Indian maestro Ilayaraja).
