'Meeku Maathrame Cheptha' actor Abhinav Gomatam interview


Abhinav Gomatam, who earlier acted in films like 'Malli Raava', 'Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi', 'Falaknuma Das' etc, played a key role in 'Meeku Maathrame Cheptha', produced by Vijay Devarakonda and starring Tharun Bhascker in the lead. As MMC releases on 1st November, Abhinav has interacted with the media and talked about the film and his journey.


I was born in Hyderabad but grew up in Gujarat. Since my dad worked in Indian Air Force, I studied in different places. I completed I learnt acting when I was in college. I did theater before entering film industry.

'Meeku Maathrama Cheptha' will be a laugh-riot. The film is all about how mobiles are invading the privacy of many. Shammeer Sultan and Arjun have come up with a very funny screenplay. It will be a fun-filled entertainer. It will be more funnier than what was shown in the trailer.

Never faced
I don't hide any secrets in my phone. I only save some photos of mine. So I've never faced any problems shown in the film. You should watch the film to know what the problems created by a mobile are.

Apt title
We initially wanted the title 'Evvariki Cheppodhu' for the movie. But we came to know that some other director had registered it. Then after, we thought 'Meeku Maathrame Cheptha' is very apt for the film. Meeku Maathrame Cheptha is a dialogue mostly used by me in the movie.

Good actor
Tharun Bhaskar imitates well and pulls others' legs on the sets. I thought he can act well, but I've never thought he will become a hero so soon. Whenever I watch Hollywood films, I feel like I can also direct. I may d But we don't know what the future holds.

Next films
I am playing the lead in a movie, directed by Jayanth C Paranjee. I am also playing a villain in Sushanth's next and a good role in Nithiin's 'Rangde'. I will also be see in the web series 'Ee Nagaraniki Emaindi 2'. Tharun Bhascker provided the story and dialogues for that webseries.
