What is your background?
I came from a business family. I used to look after the business supporting my father. I am very much interested in acting but I don’t know how to enter into Industry. We find thrill in doing the things we love. I convinced my family members and entered into films. I used to have a lot of fears before coming here. Now I am very happy and finds work satisfaction as I love to do this.
How did you start your journey with Director Shiva?
Anee Master introduced Shiva to me. We did a web series. Then I listened to the story of ’22’. I got excited while Shiva narrating the story. I felt happy that I will be doing the role of a powerful police officer in this film. But, I have a small fear of carrying such an intense role. I am proud of doing the role of a powerful police officer in my first film itself.
How did you feel watching yourself as a police officer onscreen?
I have no words to express my feeling. I have felt such a great experience. But, I can say one thing. I looked 1000 times better than how I expected myself as police since my childhood. Still, at times I find it tough to believe that I pulled off such an intense role. I think I did complete justice to that role.
Do you have any inspiration to do that role?
I admire policemen a lot. Now when I am doing this role my respect towards them has further increased. I drew inspiration from Jr NTR in ‘Temper’, Power Star Pawan Kalyan in ‘Gabbar Singh’, and from some real police officers.
This film has received the most celebrity support in recent times. How do you feel about it?
Shiva and I worked very hard for this film. Even in my wildest dreams, I never thought that my film will be launched by my favorite hero Venkatesh garu. I was very happy that Hero Sai Tej and many celebrities attended the launch of our film and extended their blessings towards us. VV Vinayak garu and C Kalyan garu launched the title and logo of our banner. Puri Jagannadh garu, Maruthi garu along with Nagarjuna garu, Prabhas garu released the teaser and songs from our film. I feel lucky to have the support of all these stars and directors for our film. I thank each and everyone from the bottom of my heart. It is because of BA Raju garu only, this film has got such hype. Special thanks to him.
