Interesting role reversal in A Harikrishna's 8MM

Vasishta will play a police officer with grey shades and face off against Jaggesh in the film

Published: 22nd September 2017

A Harikrishna's upcoming film 8MM will feature an interesting character reversal. While regular hero Jaggesh will play a character with negative shades, the regular ‘villain’ Vasishta will play a person with a few redeeming qualities.

Vasishta, who plays an antagonist usually, has been trying new kind of roles, including playing leads in some movies, and 8MM will be one of them. Vasishta will play a police officer and face off against Jaggesh. "An actor has to do justice to a character, whether it is heroic or villainous. I have been trying to break away from the usual roles offered to me and 8MM is a step in that direction,” says the actor.

Harikrishna, who previously worked with Vasishta in IRA, always had him in mind for this role. "I was wondering how I would be placed opposite a versatile actor like Jaggesh, and I was given a clear picture by the director,” says Vasishta. “I then signed on the dotted line. Now, it is up to me, how I will portray this character.”

The filmmakers who released a motion poster had organised a grand launch for the movie today. The film also features Atul Kulkarni in a pivotal role, and has music by Judah Sandy and cinematography by Vincent.
