Hero Karthi’s upcoming rural drama, Chinna Babu is slated for a July 13th release. On this occasion, we had a brief chat session with him. Here is the transcript.
Q) Tell us about your role?
I’m playing as a farmer which was very exciting for me. I did a little bit of research to portray this character. In the film, we showcased the positive side of farming and projected it as a celebration rather than a difficult task. We even showed some natural and organic farming techniques.
Q) Tell us about your director Pandiraj?
Pandiraj earlier made a film on children called Pasanga which is one of my favorite films. Soon after he approached me with this script I liked it and immediately said okay to do the film.
Q) Your brother Suriya produced this film, Tell us about him?
Yeah, he is a good producer and paid remuneration in time. (Laughs). Jokes apart, he gave some good suggestions while shooting and even made corrections during dubbing work also.
Q) Tell us about your heroine Sayyeshaa Saigal?
She did a good job in a village girl’s role. Her role will be remembered as she has a very nice character in the film which will connect with everyone.
Q) ‘Rangasthalam’ Shatru is showcased in an aggressive manner in the trailer. Is he playing the negative role?
Not exactly. In the film we both are schoolmates and we both have a conflict point. That conflict point will be revealed in an interesting manner.
Q) Who other did major roles in the film?
Satyaraj plays my father in the film. Along with him, many senior and reputed actors did good roles. Each and every character will be remembered for a long time after coming out of the theater.
Q) Next projects?
Now, I’m doing a modern love story with Rakul Preet as the female lead. Currently, shooting is going on.
