Please introduce yourself to the readers?
I’m from Visakhapatnam. I did MBA. My father has utmost experience on real estate and building departments. I didn’t expect that I will become an actor. After completing my studies, I have looked after the business. I was trained at Satyanand garu in acting. I have given few dance performances in cultural programs in my college. I have received many prizes. My friends encouraged me to try in cinemas. That’s how I decided to enter into film industry. I can do dances and fights wonderfully.
Tell us about director Rama Mohan CH?
I went through over 30 scripts before doing this film. I was very impressed by the script narrated by Rama Mohan garu. Rama Mohan gained experience in direction department by working at few prominent directors. He has crafted the film wonderfully. I love commercial films. ‘Pidugu’ is a commercial film with five songs and five fights. My father was very much impressed by the script and he turned into producer. We have not seen such a subject in the past 10 years.
Would you like to sum up your character in ‘Pidugu’ in couple of words?
I played Jai Srivatsava, a wealthiest guy. My role has four to five shades. After the love marriage, the twist in the story starts. As in the aforementioned statement, we have not seen such a subject in the past 10 years. The film will have all elements like love, comedy and action.
Tell us about your co-artists?
Vinod Kumar, Banerjee and Jabardasth gang have played in the film. As I have worked with seniors, I have learnt few techniques in acting from them. Acting with senior artists became big plus to me. Songs are receiving good response. I wish and hope that the film will become big success.
What are your upcoming projects?
I’m going to work with a top director for my next project. Right now, talks are going on. Details regarding my upcoming film will be revealed by the end of this month.
