Adivi Sesh: 'My Next Release Is All About Secrecy'

Adivi Sesh: 'My Next Release Is All About Secrecy'

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 or Goodachari. Luckily for me, this time also in Evaru I was able to surrender completely to the director Venkat Ramji’s vision. I had the luxury of being only an actor on the sets. I hope the audience likes Evaru as much as Goodachari.”

The film releases on August 15.

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,”

The teaser of the new Adivi Shesh thriller Evaru which was relased on July 19 is a killer. It is sleek, fast-paced, intriguing, gripping and unrelenting in its battering-ram suspense. There is a murder accused heroine (Regina Cassandra) and a morally compromised cop, played with stinging swagger by Adivi.

Says Adivi, “I play a corrupt cop. One never knows which way my character goes. I enjoy this unpredictability in my roles. I seek it out and a grab it with both hands,” says Adivi who is happy to reunite with his Kshanam team for another thriller.

“I loved exploring the thriller genre again. And I loved exploring this genre with the same team with which I did Kshanam. Evaru is like an ‘IOU” for me to them,” says Adivi gratefully, hoping the film would connect as strongly with the  audience as Kshanam did.

About the release being preponed Adivi says it’s all because of Saaho. 

“We didn’t want to come anywhere near Saaho. So we had originally planned to release two weeks after. But we got to know  that Saaho is being postponed to August 30. So we quickly rescheduled for an August 15 release. Now we have Ranarangam for company on August 15. That team comprises my friends. So I  wish them all the best.”

What about the two Hindi releases Mission Mangal and Batla House on August 15?

Adivi is not bothered about competition from that quarter. “Hindi films  are a very small market as compared with Telugu films. So like I said, my competition is Ranarangam. And then there is Saaho two weeks later. Prabhas has worked so hard on it and he was so good to me when I did a small role in Baahubali, I wish Saaho all the luck in the world.”
