Meanwhile, We'll Retell Today's Story Later has reached 2.2 million viewers. Regarding his movie's success, Rano Karno acknowledged Si Doel's character had a major impact on his career.
"I have been doing acting for almost 50 years. Si Doel is me and I am Si Doel," the director and scenario writer of Doel's Love Story Ending, told Showbiz Liputan6.com in South Jakarta recently.
Rano Karno said that Si Doel's story had become part of his life.
"(The first time) I read the story of Si Doel was at the age of 8. There used to be a novel titled, Si Doel The Jakartan Boy. When the film titled Si Doel The Betawi Boy got made, I was trusted with the role. And the rest is history," recalls the actor who was born in Jakarta October 8, 1960.
That moment compelled Rano Karno to produce the soap opera version which has been on TV since 1992.
"It inspired me to make Si Doel The Educated Boy," he added. Judging by the words of Rano is Si Doel and Si Doel is Rano, it very well may be that the character has become his alter-ego.
When confirmed about it, Rano did not argue. "Maybe, yeah. Perhaps," concluded the Best Male Actor in the 1990 Indonesian Film Festival with the film Taxi.
