Ramesh Aravind and Akash Srivatsa team up for a film

The actor-filmmaker, who is directing the Queen remakes in Tamil and Kannada, will soon be acting in a film helmed by the Badmaash director

Associating with Ramesh Aravind is every director’s dream. And there don’t seem to be any dearth of roles for the veteran actor, either. But he tells us that what is important to him, is a role that suits his age.

The actor, who is getting ready to host the reality show Kannadada Kotyadhipathi 2018 (the Kannada version of the popular show, Kaun Banega Crorepati)  has picked yet another interesting project, for which he will be associating with director Akash Srivatsa. And again, it was the character that caught his attention.

"When I started off, the roles I was offered were in the romantic, and comedy genres. Now, I am trying my hand at investigative roles. I am either playing a Sherlock Holmes, or getting into an ACP or DCPs character. It is slightly crazy but suits my age perfectly," says Ramesh, adding, "As for Srivatsa’s film, it is also a role that will see me don an investigator's hat. It's going to be like the English TV series, The Mentalist."

Before turning an independent director with Badmaash, Akash has previously worked as an assistant with Ramesh. This will be his chance to helm a film for his mentor.

The actor has only eight days of shoot left for Bhairadevi, a film produced by Radhika Kumaraswamy, in which he plays a police officer. Ramesh seems quite happy with the space he is in. And why not? In addition to his acting assignments, he will be starting his next schedule for the remake of Queen, that is being made in three languages. The next schedule is planned for the first week of June. "I have a schedule to shoot in Mysuru with Kajal Aggarwal after which I will be off to Paris, where we have a small portion to be shot for both the Kannada and Tamil versions. I hope to complete the shoot in the two languages before I begin with the reality show," says Ramesh, who is currently at the rehearsals of Kannadada Kotyadhipathi
