Actor Aadi, who awaits the release of forthcoming Telugu entertainer Chuttalabbayi, says his approach towards his career and selection of scripts is set to undergo a drastic transformation.
“Post Chuttalabbayi, my approach towards career will be very different. Audiences will see a different Aadi in the coming months and if the process requires transformation, I’m game for it. This is exactly why I haven’t signed any new scripts,” Aadi told IANS.
The Garam actor is pleased with the output of Chuttalabbayi, which is slated for release in cinemas on Friday.
Calling it an out-and-out entertainer, he said: “The entire team is very positive about the film. Unlike my last two releases which focused more on appealing to the masses, this project has been made keeping in mind all sections of the audience.”
“There’s nothing heroic about my character. There are no punch dialogues,” said Aadi, heaping praise on his director Veerabhadram. “He’s a hard worker and he’s someone who doesn’t compromise on his vision. He’s known for making highly entertaining films and he has lived up to that image. He has made a Chuttalabbayi’ stand out with its presentation,” he said.
In the film, which also stars Namitha Pramod and Sai Kumar, he plays a character called “Recovery Babji”. “I play a recovery agent. I accidentally get involved in a problem and how I find my way out of it forms the crux of the story. I laughed through the narration and that’s when I realised this is going to be a great entertainer,” he added.
Aadi’s last two films earned lukewarm response at the box-office. Asked what according to him went wrong, he said he might have chosen wrong scripts. “I did characters above my age and I think that didn’t suit my on screen image. Also, I don’t want to do heavy characters, as I feel audiences might not be able to relate,” he said.
