Hyderabad, ( IANS, Earlier this year, with ‘Major’, actor Adivi Shesh tasted box office success and won hearts for his brilliant portrayal of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, the heroic martyr of 26/11 Mumbai attacks.
Now the actor is eagerly awaiting the theatrical release of his upcoming film ‘HIT – The Second Case’. The film is a spine-chilling thriller, which will release on 2nd December.
The film is making news for some similarities it shares with the Shraddha Walker murder case that surfaced recently.
‘Hit 2’ was in the making for almost a year, while the heinous crime that took place in Delhi in November has come to light. In ‘HIT 2’, Sheshi plays a lazy, laid-back cop on the target of a criminal in the port city of Visakhapatnam.
What’s so special about ‘HIT 2’ – It’s a question of which came first the chicken or the egg? A completely different story from the Delhi crime we came up with a year ago. But it has many similar features. Even our film There is also a character named Shraddha.
Produced by director Dr. Sailesh Kolanu, ‘Hit Universe’ is the backdrop of a series of seven films that explore the darkest places of humanity expressed in the form of heinous crimes.
Each film revolves around a crime story set in a particular city. The first film in the series, ‘Hit’ was a small film which went on to become a cult hit. The rest came for the second film, and also for the third film.
So what was it about the film that got him interested in the role?
Abhinata said, “I consider myself emotional by nature and by that I mean both men and women are equal. As an audience I was really moved when I heard about the crime against women in the film . When I was listening to the story, I forgot that I was being introduced as an actor. I just wanted vengeance against the culprit. So it made a lot of sense for it to be a very hopeful film.”
For the actor, the film brought its fair share of tough moments. However, it was not the action sequences that made him gasp, confessed Sesh.
“Shooting an action scene in a fishing harbor for nine days as a vegetarian was tough. It wasn’t just the smell but we were rolling in it. I am quite proud of the action scene. It was choreographed by Sunil Rodrigues. Have done.”
Seish disagrees with the criticism that blames cinema for rising crime rates. He insisted that cinema as an institution cannot be blamed for promoting crime.
The actor concluded, “She terrorized all the women in England at that time. There were no films at that time. So ultimately I think if someone wants to be evil, he will find inspiration from anywhere. I think It is wrong to blame cinema.”
