Not much is known about Telugu star-actor Adivi Sesh’s next release Evaru which, Adivi informs me, means ‘Who?’
Adivi Sesh is certain that the secrecy surrounding Evaru will work to its advantage. “It is a suspense film and yes, there is a murder. Beyond that I cannot reveal anything else at this point. All I can say is, it is a suspense film unlike any seen so far in Telugu cinema.”
Adivi has always seen himself as a bit of a game-changer.
“There’s no point in doing it if it’s already been done,” says Adivi. “In that sense I’ve been lucky. My films, though not quite the conventional/traditional fare in Telugu cinema, have done well, whether it was Kshanam, Oopiri orGoodachari. Luckily for me, this time also in Evaru I was able to surrender completely to the director VenkatRamji’s vision.I had the luxury of being only an actor on the sets. I hope the audience likes Evaru as much asGoodachari.”
The film releases on August 23. The team earlier hoped to release on August 15.
“All things considered, we thought August 23 to be the best option.” say Adivi.
He is very excited about his next project. “Major is being produced by Mahesh Babu and it is my first bio-pic. Also it will be my first release in Hindi.We’re making it as a bi-lingual in Hindi and Telugu. So that is another step into an unknown territory for me. There is no reason for me to do a film unless it challenges me in new ways,”
