I am very particular about the story. On the other side, for any hero, it is very rare to get find acceptance as a romantic hero. Guna 369 is a very different film.

What is the major reason for you to accept Hippi? The speciality of TN Krishna is that he takes a scene to another level while shooting it. But, in this film, I play a very easy-going character, with a lot of humour and energy. What is the USP of Hippi? My acting in Hippi is very different from what I have done in RX100. How do you select your scripts? For instance, Telugu people watch Tamil films and vice versa. Two, JD Chakravarthy’s energetic performance. Are you interested in doing films in other languages?

Basically, Hippi refers to people who live life on their own terms. He turns a normal script into an extraordinary one and it’s only possible if a director has the ability to think creatively like Mani Ratnam, RGV and Krishna Vamsi.

The film is very intense and emotional to the scale which we have not seen in recent Telugu films. I think Hippi has three USPs. So, I have a basic understanding of how the audience would react to certain scenes/films. I am playing the villain and it has given me a new dimension as an actor. I grew up watching films among the audience. If the script naturally demands intimate scenes, I feel like doing my job. A good film will be liked by the audience irrespective of its language. I have two more films with debutant directors Shekhar Reddy and Sree. But, Hippi has a fast-paced screenplay and I like it. Do you feel discomfort while doing lip-lock scenes? Similarly, we have also made this film without following the conventional rules of filmmaking. As an audience, I should like a film first before I sign on dotted lines. After Hippi, Guna 369 will hit the screens in July and later, Gang Leader will release. Have you signed any new project?
