Adivi Sesh completes Hindi dubbing of ‘Major’

0

Actor-director-writer Adivi Sesh, who will be soon seen essaying the role of military hero Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan in the upcoming bilingual film ‘Major’, has been working round the clock and recently completed the film’s dubbing.

Double masked and taking all precautions, the actor ensured that he did not come in contact with many people as he did not wish to delay the process of dubbing. He worked through the weekend.

He says, “There were several work commitments and I know the delay that this whole strain puts on the film and cast and crew who have worked so hard. I wanted to ensure that the Hindi dub went smoothly and I am so happy that it all was okay.”

Describing how he managed to dub amidst the rising Covid infections, he says, “We have a standard policy within our team. Mask up and use common sense. I’m very conscious about my parents’ health, so I always make it a point to avoid crowded situations and to stay masked. To avoid parties on New Year’s Eve felt like common sense. To spend it with family and two friends, who are double vaccinated and careful, made sense. And that’s what I did.”

Inspired by true events, ‘Major’ captures the life and times of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, the brave officer who attained martyrdom while saving the lives of numerous hostages in the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai on November 26, 2008 during the infamous 26/11 attacks.

Maj. Sandeep Unnikrishnan was the first to crack a joke, says actor who plays the braveheart on screen

0

Telugu actor Adivi Sesh, who’s playing the 26/11 martyr, Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, in Mahesh Babu’s upcoming film ‘Major’, says the braveheart was not just a fighter, but also had an ever-ready sense of humour.

“You remember his heroics, his firm expression as he stood strong even as Mumbai’s iconic Taj Mahal Palace Hotel burned,” Adivi Sesh told IANS in an interview. “While researching my character, I realised he was the first to crack a joke even in the most difficult circumstances. He had an extremely captivating smile.”

As a result, the actor said, “we did not have to deliberately bring laughter into the narrative … it flowed in organically”. The film, he pointed out, is not only about the events of 26/11 and the late National Security Guards (NSG) officer’s role in releasing hostages trapped inside the Taj Mahal Palace, but about Major Unnikrishnan’s life and the warmth of his personality.

The actor, who was raised in the US, said he was there when the tragedy of 26/11 unfolded and he saw it on TV. “When I first saw the picture of Major Sandeep, it struck me hard. I felt an instant connection with the photograph, for he resembled some of my cousins. He and I look similar in many ways.”

Continuing with his narrative, the actor said: “It wasn’t just the case of me learning more about a warrior. It was something else. Something about his photo made me keep thinking about him. Going on, I kind of became an admirer to him, which resulted in creating a path to make a movie on his life.”

The film may centre around the two fateful days in the life of Major Unnikrishnan, which the actor said was the most important chapter of the martyr’s life, but it is not only about him.

“Our intention is to present the events from his point of view, but it was important to find an equilibrium and understand that there were so many people who fought that day, many of whom were also killed,” Sesh pointed out.

On being quizzed about the other movies and documentaries being made on the terror attacks, Sesh said some of them were exaggerated.

“I did watch a couple of documentaries and honestly, I think the event was exploited and exaggerated. I believe that when we make a film on the incident, we must not be exploitative,” Sesh affirmed, adding the film’s tight, well-researched script, and Director Shashi Kiran Tikka’s sharp eye for visuals and performances, will enable the crew to deliver the promise.

For his exemplary bravery, Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan was awarded the nation’s highest peacetime gallantry award, Ashok Chakra.

A multilingual film scheduled for release in Telugu, Malayalam, and Hindi on February 11, 2022, ‘Major’ also stars Saie Manjrekar, Shobhita Dhulipala, Revathi and Prakash Raj.

For Telugu star Adivi Sesh, who’s playing the 26/11 martyr, Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, in Mahesh Babu’s upcoming film ‘Major’, the braveheart’s life has been a lesson for him.

“The 26/11 attacks may have claimed him, but his life has taught me more. I hope that shines through in our film,” the actor said about the character he plays.

Major Unnikrishnan, an Indian Army officer who was serving in the elite 51 Special Action Group of the National Security Guards (NSG), died fighting the Pakistani terrorists who were holed up in the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel.

He was martyred after he had rescued the hostages trapped in the hotel and for his exemplary bravery, he was awarded the nation’s highest peacetime gallantry award, Ashok Chakra.

“We take this moment to honour, not just Sandeep sir, but all the heroes who laid down their lives to protect us on those fateful three days in November 2008. We bow our heads in silence, in the memory of them and the victims,” Adivi Sesh had earlier said on social media.

The actor knows how difficult it is to step into the shoes of Major Unnikrishnan, but he expressed the hope that he would be able to do justice to the officer’s incredible story of courage under fire.

A 94-second teaser of the film, which was unveiled earlier, shows Adivi Sesh, playing the braveheart officer, speaking emotionally about what it means to be a patriot.

A multilingual film directed by Sashi Kiran Thikka and scheduled for release in Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi on February 11, 2022, ‘Major’ also stars Saie Manjrekar, Shobhita Dhulipala, Revathi and Prakash Raj.

Adivi Sesh on ‘Major’ release: Important to be seen the right way

0

Actor Adivi Sesh, who is busy wrapping up the final schedule of his upcoming bilingual film “Major”, says that the movie has elements designed for a theatrical release.

He specifies that ideally, he wants the film to be released on the big screen.

“Major”, which is a biopic on 26/11 martyr Sandeep Unnikrishnan, was earlier scheduled to release on July 2. However, due to the lockdown, the makers postponed the film.

“To be very honest, we knew that the theatrical was looking kind of shaky around the time we released the teaser. So, it wasn’t a surprise to us. In our mind, if things went well, we would stick to our release schedule, if they didn’t, we knew (we) were prepared with how we would go about it,” Sesh told IANS.

He added: “‘Major’ is a big screen experience first, before anything else. There are so many things that we designed in the film which are meant for the theatre audience.”

The actor believes the right kind of visibility is crucial.

“So, when I know that every market across the country has opened up, that is when we would want to bring ‘Major’ out, the right way. It’s important to be seen the right way, I believe. Especially the whole of this film, especially for me as a fan of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, is to honour him,” he says.

Ever since the lockdown restrictions eased in Telangana, many films have resumed shooting aiming to wrap up their projects.

Sesh says that the team of “Major” doesn’t want to falter at any point just being in a hurry.

“More than me, the team is hell bent on getting it right. There is a certain momentum that the crew has when a film is on roll. If suddenly that stops, you find yourself trying to get the momentum back. So, we are trying to get the momentum back,” says the “Kshanam” actor.

He adds: “We want to do it properly because when the audience is watching the film, they don’t care that the team didn’t shoot for two months because of the pandemic or not. They want to see something that is beautiful and we can’t rush it in a way that compromises the film. Of course, we will try to do it as quickly as possible.”

Besides “Major”, Sesh has “Hit 2” and “Goodachari 2” next.

Adivi Sesh: Greatest love story is Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan’s in ‘Sholay’

0

Telugu actor Adivi Sesh has resumed shooting for the upcoming biographical drama “Major”, following which he will focus on the action thriller “Hit 2” and eventually move to “Goodachari 2”. If there is one genre missing from his ‘thrilling’ roster, it’s out-and-out romance.

Despite fans constantly asking him, we don’t see him signing any. A fan of Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan’s romantic track in “Sholay”, Sesh is waiting for the right love story to come his way.

The actor did romance Eesha Rebba in the 2017 film “Ami Thumi”, but he doesn’t call it an out and out romantic film.

“I don’t think I have done a romantic film ever because even ‘Ami Thumi’ is like an ‘Andaaz Apna Apna’, a slapstick comedy, and it was fun. As an audience, I really enjoy watching deep-layered love stories. I was never a fan of the candyfloss kind of love stories. For me, the greatest love story of all time is Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan ji’s love story in ‘Sholay’, more than the Hema Malini-Dharmedra ji’s love story. I am just waiting for that beautiful love story to come and entice my heart,” he tells IANS.

The 35-year-old actor is often flooded with questions about a sequel to his 2018 spy film “Goodachari”. Sesh says the wait is partly his fault.

“I think in some way it is my fault because originally I was going to do ‘Goodachari 2’ immediately after ‘Goodachari’ and I changed my mind because I needed a little time away from that universe, to get a fresh perspective,” the actor says.

He continues: “When I got the dream project ‘Major’ that, combined with the pandemic, created a bigger delay on ‘Goodachari 2’ but that was not intended. We have our core story finished. The moment I finish the shoot of ‘Major’, I will be dedicated towards putting together a good script and screenplay for ‘Goodachari 2’. So, if all things go well, we will start shooting at the end of the year.”

The actor has resumed his shoot for “Major”, where he essays Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, after two months of halt owing to the pandemic. The story of the film chronicles the life of 26/11 martyr Unnikrishnan’s life and what made him the braveheart who showed exemplary bravery during the Mumbai November 26 terrorist attacks.

Did the two-month gap break his connection with the character? “I think what happened was that the last time, right before the second lockdown, we kind of knew it was starting to get bad a month before they actually announced lockdown. Because there are so many different timelines in the film, what I did was that I made sure to finish up every timeline. There was no concept of leaving a timeline halfway. Now, for this schedule, everything we will be doing is one age, one era.”

The actor adds: So, it’s almost like playing different characters in a way. What a person is at the age of 21, he is not going to be the same at 31. The age range I am playing for the current schedule is something that I didn’t play before, so it’s like a fresh prep for a fresh character.”
