Adivi Sesh ‘s Surprise Birthday Party
The first poster of Telugu star Adivi Sesh’s prestigious bio-pic Major was released on December 17 which happens to be Adivi’s birthday.
He couldn’t believe that the Major team planned such a surprise for him. ” It was such an honour. I mean, this is no ordinary film. It celebrates the life of a soldier who gave his life for our country.It is an honour enough having to play him. Then to have the first look released on my birthday was a dream come true.”
Did he know about this beforehand? “No. They kept it a surprise for my birthday. Of course I had an inkling that something was cooking. But when the poster came out on my special day I felt very emotional and grateful. God has been great.”
Adivi shot for the film against all odds, “We could shoot this film in spite of the pandemic. We shot almost 40 days during the pandemic observing all the Covid guidelines with a minimal crew. It was tough . But we did it. We had Sandeep Unnikrishnan’s blessings.
The Major team also surprised him in other ways on his birthday. “The entire cast and crew of Major showed up at my house at midnight to bring in my birthday. We had an impromptu party.They had made all the arrangements. It felt like the most special day of my life.”
That wasn’t the only treat for Adivi this birthday. “My parents were with me on my birthday for the first time after a long long time.
