It’s one film at a time for Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas
The Alludu Seenu actor has mastered several adventurous sports to get into the skin of his character in Sakshyam
Actor Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas is in no hurry. The 24-year-old actor wants to make his stride in the industry slowly and asserts that he is choosing his films for the long haul. “I’m happy to have managed to build a reputation as an actor who can dance, emote and pull off high-voltage action episodes seamlessly. My next release Sakshyam will be my first attempt at a concept-driven film,” he says.
Directed by Sriwass, he says it breaks the hackneyed template that had been on the rise in Telugu cinema for a while now. “I can confidently say that Sakshyam has a first-of-its-kind script that primarily focuses on the five manifestations of nature namely air, water, fire, land and sky. The action sequences in the film are conceptulised in tune with the script keeping these aspects on the mind.”
The actor will be seen as a video game developer from the West in the film. “The story demands some spine-chilling action sequences for which I was trained in BMX riding, flyboarding and jet skiing. It was really challenging to perform these stunts,” adds Srinivas, who tells us that out of the 120-day production schedule, action sequences were shot for 60 days under the supervision of action choreographer Peter Hein.
“The film is nearing completion and we will start filming the climax after Sankranti followed by songs shoot,” says the Alludu Seenu actor, who is taking it easy for now. “I like to work in one film at a time, because if I do too many films, I may lose my focus. I want to give 100 per cent to every film I work on.”
Asked him to define his style, and he says, “It’s too early to fix an image for myself. Right now, I’m trying to not to repeat myself. So, I want to be associated with films that have good content and are entertaining at the same time,” he adds.
