Adivi Sesh To Lose 10 Kgs For Next Film

Adivi Sesh To Lose 10 Kgs For Next Film

After four consecutive hits Kshanam, Oopiri, Ami Thumi and Evaru, up next for Evaru star Adivi Sesh is a true-life soldier’s tale Major where he plays the national hero Sandeep Uunni Krishnan.

Mahesh Babu who produces the film says Adivi Sesh has been travelling with this story for a long time and he fits the bill completely.

Adivi is getting ready for the challenge. “I’ve to look and think like a true soldier. I don’t want to fake it.”

Adivi is going into a strict military-like regimen to play the part. 

“I have to look extremely fit and slim. I am going to lose ten kgs in the next three months before we start shooting for Major. A strict diet plan has been worked out, and I intend to follow it faithfully. Luckily I don’t have to avoid my Mom’s food because she lives in California.”

Adivi sees playing the Ashoka Chakra winner as a huge responsibility. 

“It is my first real-life character. And to be playing a man so heroic courageous and iconic is to me, the greatest privilege an actor can get. I am going to give this role all the love and respect it deserves.”

Major is a major departure for Adivi from all the characters he has played so far.  

“After Evaru I wanted to do something in a different genre. I’ve done the suspense genre twice in Kshanam and Evaru in the last two years. I grew up wanting to play a soldier. Now I’m finally getting to do it.”

Major will be produced by Mahesh Babu. And Adivi can’t stop feeling privileged. 

“I’ve always been a big fan of Mahesh Babu and to now have him produce a film where I play this distinguished soldier is like a dream come true. The best thing about being an actor is that you get  to play  out all your fantasies.”
