Actor Sundeep Kishan keen to build credibility as actor
The actor admits there is lot of risk involved, but says it's all worth it.

Chennai: For someone who doesn't come from a star family, it's important to build credibility with different roles, says southern actor Sundeep Kishan, who is currently basking in the success of his recent Tamil film 'Yaaruda Mahesh'.

"How do I build credibility if I'm neither from a star family, nor do I have the looks and I can't even dance like any of the top heroes? It can only be done if I choose to do something out of the box in every film. I've been precisely doing that since my debut," Sundeep told IANS.

"I played a negative lead in my Telugu debut film followed by another offbeat role in 'Prasthanam'. This was followed by the role of a cricketer in 'Shor In The City' to a college-goer in 'Routine Love Story'. I also played a rural character in 'Gundello Godari'," he added.

Sundeep admits there is lot of risk involved, but says it's all worth it. "I'm aware of the risk involved, but I'm always driven by the urge to attempt something first of its kind. Luckily, it has worked every time. I wanted to do something different in Tamil as well, and, therefore I decided to do a full-length adult-comedy," he said.

"Even though it was risky to do adult comedy in Tamil, considering nobody has even attempted it before, I took my chances. I'm extremely happy with the response and have been getting lot of phone calls since the release. Audiences in the theatre I went to were laughing out loud in every other scene," he added.

'Yaaruda Mahesh', which also features Dimple Chopda and Jagan in key roles, released April 26. Its Telugu version, titled 'Mahesh', is scheduled to release in May. As of now, he has two Telugu films in hand, 'D for Dopidi' and "DK Bose". He is likely to sign a big banner Tamil project soon.Chennai, April 30 (IANS) For someone who doesn't come from a star family, it's important to build credibility with different roles, says southern actor Sundeep Kishan, who is currently basking in the success of his recent Tamil film 'Yaaruda Mahesh'.
