On this eve, he shared few words about his upcoming bilingual film ‘Friend request’ and his future plans with the media.
“After ‘Bhamakalapam’, because of my immaturity I have selected few films which didn’t work out. To not to repeat those mistakes, I teamed up with my friends to make quality films. Last year, The Bollywood films ‘Shudra’ and ‘Bandook’ which I have made received critical acclaims and were successful commercially. With that boost, I’m making a film ‘Friend Request’ in Hindi and Telugu languages simultaneously. With the cooperation of Vijaya Varma in Telugu and with the partnership of some agencies in Hindi, I’m planning to release at least 3 films every year. Meanwhile, a Tamil film which I’m presently working on will release in the start of the next year. I’m ready to do any character if it is challenging. Here after, I’m planning to act in at least three Telugu films in a year,” said director-producer and actor Aditya Om.

Adithya Om’s character in the film will stand out as a mile stone in his career. ‘Friend Request’ will give him a long career as a commercial and technical director.
