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.

Saiee M. Manjrekar on signing Telugu films: Language will never be a barrier

0

Actress Saiee M. Manjrekar had a Bollywood debut in the 2019 Salman Khan biggie “Dabangg 3”. She is now looking southward, with two Telugu films lined up — “Major” and “Ghani”.

While “Major” is a bilingual biographical drama, “Ghani” is a sports adventure film. Actor-filmmaker Mahesh Manjrekar’ daughter Saiee opened up on her move to enter the Telugu industry.

“For me language will never be a barrier because I want to let my performance speak more. This is a lesson I learnt from my dad that for an actor, language should never be a barrier. It’s the actor’s performance that should do the work,” she says.

“Major” starring Adivi Sesh is a bilingual based on life of 26/11 martyr Sandeep Unnikrishnan. Saiee plays the role of Neha, wife of Sesh’s character.

“It wasn’t an informed decision (to sign Telugu films) but the more I thought about it the more it made sense. When I read my character in ‘Major’, I fell in love with it. Some movies you read and you can imagine yourself doing this. The language was secondary. Then “Ghani” also happened. My parents told me that there is so much happening with pan-India films and wherever good work is happening, I should go, ” she says.

On “Dabangg 3”, she says starting in a Salman Khan film had its advantages. “More than doing a Salman Khan film, having him as a mentor is so good. He has been in the industry and has done everything. So, every time I had a question, I knew I have a person to go to and talk of anything, who is well-versed in the industry,” says Saiee.
