Actors Adivi Sesh and Adah Sharma have teamed up for the upcoming Telugu film “Kshanam”, which is directed by debutant Ravikanth Perepu and produced by PVP Cinema.
“With the perfect blend of suspense and romance, it’s a film with different concept,” Adivi told IANS.
The project, which also features television anchor-turned-actress Anasuya Bharadwaj in an important role, has already gone on floors.
Adivi, who was last seen on the big screen in “Baahubali”, is happy with his career.
“Post ‘Baahubali’, I’ve been getting antagonist roles in big projects and protagonist roles in mid-budget films. It’s been a good mix of offers and I’m choosing the best from what I’ve been getting,” he said.

He doesn’t mind playing a baddie unless the role is “captivating”.
“I want to try and do roles that are captivating. John Travolta, for instance, played the villain in ‘Broken Arrow’, but you can’t take eyes off him throughout the film. If I get to do such an important role, I wouldn’t mind if I’m the bad guy,” he said.
Adivi will next team up with his filmmaker brother Sai Kiran Adivi for Telugu project “Chilpi Deyyam”.
“The ‘Deyyam’ reference in the title doesn’t mean horror. This will be a sweet comedy. We plan to go on floors soon,” he said, adding that he will also be seen in special appearances in upcoming Telugu projects “Oopiri” and next week’s “Size Zero”.
“Both these projects have been very special. It was an honour to work with Anushka Shetty, who is a dear friend, in both the films. It was also lovely working with Nagarjuna sir in Oopiri, and with Arya in ‘Size Zero’,” he said.
He is also in talks for two more Telugu projects.
