Actor Aadi, who awaits the release of forthcoming Telugu commercial entertainer "Garam", says his wife's inputs really helped him learn the East Godavari accent for the character he essays in the film.
"My character speaks East Godavari accent in the film. Though I had a writer who helped me learn it before we went on the floors, my wife's timely insight really came in handy, because she hails from Rajahmundry and is quite well versed with the accent," Aadi told IANS.
"Garam", which is directed by Madan, releases in cinemas on Friday.
For Aadi, who is having a release after a year, it is the most important film of his career.
"It is with a lot of difficultly that the film is finally getting released. It is an important project because it is coming after two releases which didn't do well. After the original producer backed out midway, my parents came on board to complete the film," he said, and added that they have been trying to release the film since last December.
"Garam", according to the "Prema Kavali" actor, is a commercial outing with twists and turns.
"I play a guy with the characteristics of a 'tapori' from a very small town. It's the kind of commercial film that will appeal to masses and even the elite audience thanks to some quintessential elements that it is packed with," he said, adding that the viewers are in for a big surprise in the second half of the film.
Busy promoting his film, Aadi, who is also shooting for his next movie "Chuttalabbayi", says he has been missing time with his newborn daughter.
"It has been nearly a month since I saw her. She is with her mother in Rajahmundry. I miss watching her grow," rues Aadi, who says he has become more responsible since he became a father.
"All these years, my success and failure just mattered to me. Now, even my wife prays for my success and since this is my first release after marriage, she is naturally very nervous," he signed off.
The film also stars Adah Sharma and Brahmanandam in important roles.
