After getting noticed in Premism, there has been no looking back for Kannada actor Chetan Chandra. Even as he is drawing attention for his chiseled looks in his upcoming action flick Kumbha Rashi, the actor is back in news for yet another makeover that he has gone in for Biscuit, a comic caper.
While the young actor has retained the eight-pack that he had developed for Kumbha Rashi, it is in his hair style that you can spot a major difference. “I have also put on five kilos for this film. I owe a lot to my fitness trainer Kitty, who despite having gone to USA, kept a tab of my exercise regime and food intake. While Kumbha Rashi will see me in a rough and tough avatar, in Biscuit, I will come across as a happy-go-lucky person. While Kumbha Rashi will gain me mass appeal, Biscuit is a film that is for the classes,” he says.
The actor further adds that the film comes with a beautiful story line. “I’m very confident that it will keep the audience engrossed from the start to the finish. There won’t be a single person who cannot identify him/herself with the situations that unfold in the film. It is a hilarious film. It is easy to laugh but very difficult to make others laugh. I hope I do a good job with it,” says the actor.
Aishwarya Nag plays the leading lady in the film and actor Ravi Teja is the director. “Biscuit is a mirror of Bangalore and its various many lifestyles. It aims at capturing the constant changes it goes through. It is for this precise reason that we did the photo shoot across the city. The film that goes on floors next month will also have several surprise elements. Quite a few A-List actors will be making special appearances throughout the film. The unpredictable plot is the true hero of the film,” adds Ravi.
Jumping back into the conversation, Chetan says, “Ravi and Chandrahas, the director of Kumbha Rashi, and I are great friends and this has acted as an advantage.”
These two films apart, the actor has played an important role in Nam Areali Innondina, a film that was shot in one-and-a-half hours flat. “I have essayed the role of a Muslim man in the film. While I can’t reveal much about the significance of the character, I can say that it took me two hours just to get the make-up done. It is a very different role, both in terms of looks and the nature of character.”
With three films in hand and many more in the offing, we wish the actor some happy and successful times ahead!
