Six months after his last release ‘Mosagaallaku Mosagaadu’, actor Sudheer Babu, who is going through a lean patch of late with no major hits under his belt, will be testing his luck with ‘Bhale Manchi Roju’, a crime drama high on humour.
Talking about his role in the film, which is carrying a good pre-release buzz, he explains, “I play a driver in Mercedes Benz showroom. It is about a sequence of events unfolding within a single day.The reason why I gave the nod is because of the ‘compact’ script.
I think the humour and crisp narration will go in favour of the film. I was surprised when director Sreeram Aditya came up with the script. He’s like a wonder kid – he’s just 24 years and has not worked under anyone but you can see his skills in the film.”
The actor has been working with relatively new directors with each passing film. Put that to him and he says, “It’s not a conscious choice but I believe new filmmakers always come up with fresh ideas. But it’s again a risky proposition to believe in them because they have no track record to boast of.
“I’m always game to take chances and explore new horizons and that reflected in the films I did, irrespective of the result. At the end of the day, it’s about how you justify the roles that are offered.”
Apart from his superstar brother-in- law Mahesh Babu, interestingly, Prabhas too gave a few suggestions at the script level for the film. “One of the producer’s of the film, Vijay, is Prabhas’ childhood friend. So we used to constantly show the rushes to him and take his feedback,” elucidates Sudheer.
Talking about his Bollywood plunge with Sajid Nadiadwala’s next, and explaining his role and the back-story of how he landed in the project, the actor reveals, “They saw my pictures in Facebook and later narrated me the story. I play an antagonist and boy; it’s a pretty tough role.
I have gone through a lot of training in Martial arts – ‘Kalaripayattu’, on which the entire story is based. It’s one of those roles where you have to be lucky enough to be making a debut with.”
