Bharath bowled over by Ajith's humility- Cinema express

Another actor ‘awed by Ajith’s humility’

The Ivan Thanthiran actor was thrilled to get the chance to work with the star in Vivegam

Published: 04th July 2017

Hyderabad-based cardiologist Dr. Bharath Reddy, who played the lead in the horror-thriller Bayam Oru Payanam, is open to doing negative roles, and that's why he agreed to be a part of Ivan Thanthiran, which released a week ago. "Kannan (the director) approached me saying I'd be one of the main villains, but that wasn't the case. I am not complaining; I am happy that I did the film. Many friends called me and said it was a surprise to see me in the role of an antagonist," he says.

Some months ago, Bharath had to tonsure his head. Then, he met Kannan. "He liked the way I looked and told me he was willing to cast me in a role," he says.

The actor waited for some time after he completed Bayam Oru Payanam hoping he'd get "good scripts", but it did not happen. "Eventually, I did Achamindri and Ivan Thanthiran. I am looking forward to the release of Vivegam, where I play one of the associates of Ajith sir." 

Bharath is all praise for Ajith. "He's extremely down-to-earth and has this aura around him. I've heard people's stories about how friendly and approachable he is. But it's only after meeting him on the sets, that I realised it was all true. Though I won't be seen throughout the film, it was a good opportunity to showcase my acting skills. The only sad part is I didn't have combination scenes with him," he adds.

Up next, he has Raja the Great, alongside Ravi Teja in Telugu, besides an untitled film with Mohan Babu. "Acting with Mohan Babu is a dream come true. He's my favourite actor. We both come from the same place - Tirupathi. Though Telugu is my mother tongue, I am concentrating more on Tamil films," he tells us.
