If you thought multi-starrer movies make upcoming actors invisible, you’re wrong.
If you thought multi-starrer movies make upcoming actors invisible, you’re wrong. The recently released Mankatha is a proof, while lead actor Ajith stole the show, actor Vaibhav Reddy too managed to hold the attention of the audience.
“I am just overjoyed by the response and a lot of people are complimenting me for my performance. It’s the first time I am receiving so many calls... thanks to Ajith sir and Venkat anna,” begins the excited actor.
Vaibhav is elated that he got to share screen space with Ajith. “It’s an honour work alongside him. Though he’s one of the biggest actors in Kollywood, he’s very humble. He was friendly with everyone on the sets. He even helped me through a few tough scenes. It was a great learning experience,” informs Vaibhav.
To work with the hero for over 50 days made him feel closer to the star.
“There is a bike chase scene in the movie which required me to sit along with Ajith. To perform action sequences is quite scary and I was reluctant to it. Though he is racer himself, the experience to have shot that scene gets me jittery even now. He was riding at160km per hour and I was really petrified,” he laughs.
The actor is now looking at doing more meaningful roles and doesn’t mind being part of another multi-starrer.
“I don’t think actors should get worried about doing multi-starrers anymore. If you have a prominent role, people will definitely take notice of you. Considering the fact that I am upcoming and young, I shouldn’t be stuck to a particular role or subject,” he explains.
So will he work with director and buddy Venkat Prabhu again? “We’ve been childhood friends and working with him is like working with family. He gave me a big break with Saroja in Tamil, so I’d be glad to work with him again. However, I am also open to working with different directors and exciting scripts. But no action and fight sequences please,” chuckles Vaibhav.
