Despite having a day long shoot for his upcoming bilingual film, Un Kaadhal Irundhaal, actor Srikanth spares some time to talk to us. Ask him about signing the film, he says, “The director of the film, Hashim, was regularly in touch with me. Once I listened to the entire script, I was convinced that I could take up this project. Also, being a bilingual, the film will give me a break in Malayalam as well.”
Divulging more about his role, he says that he plays a director in the film. “The film has parallel stories. While one revloves around the sets of a film, the other happens on a college campus. The story is woven around interesting characters and how and where they meet, form the crux of the story,” he adds.
Srikanth has seen the highs and lows, in a career spanning over 16 years. However, he is not perturbed by it. “Everybody goes through a grey patch in their career. So did I but I did not dwell on it. I accepted it and moved on. I don’t believe in crying over spilt milk. I am all set to take the future head on, and succeed,” he says with confidence.
The actor played a character with shades of grey in Varnajalam when he was in the prime of his career as a romantic hero. He says he is willing to do any sort of role as tinseltown is not about stardom anymore. “The good thing is that the movie industries have evolved. Script plays the lead. A villain gets a lot of scope to perform on a par with the hero. So, when someone approaches me with a good script, I don’t mind playing an antagonist.”
Talking about his upcoming projects, he says, “I have a Tamil, Malayalam and a Telugu project lined up this year. I’m listening to other scripts too, and will announce them one after the other. This is going to be a busy year,” he concludes.
