“Glad you noticed that I played the drunkard in Champion. Not many people did and sometimes that’s a disadvantage. I get into the skin of the character as soon as I listen to the script and prep myself for that. So people really do not know me even after being a part of critically acclaimed films like Orange Mittai and Picchaikaaran. They think Raatchasan is my debut,” he told DT Next.
He also clarified that he had no problem treading a different path because of the his makeovers. “I will continue to do what I want to passionately. It is fine if people don’t recognise me. I have films with Fahadh Faasil and Prithviraj in Malayalam. Apart from that, I also signed Indian 2 before the lockdown and will shoot for it soon. My next release will be Amala Paul’s Cadaver,” he remarked.
