Prasanna is upbeat on the eve of the release of his new film. In a no holds barred chat session with Sify.com speaks about his new film Achchamundu Achchamundu releasing tomorrow, Friday (July 17)
Achchamundu Achchamundu has been getting a lot of attention and getting rave reviews since its screening at festival circuits. Please comment?
I am very proud to be a part of the film which was very challenging.
Why do you say that it was challenging?
First and foremost I play a character Senthil Kumar a computer software professional much older than what I am in real life. I am a married man with a 7-year-old daughter. It is for the first time that a film is shot in Red One Camera and that too in sync sound with a Hollywood team. I have gone for a new look in the film.
What is this new look?
When Arun Vaidyanathan my director asked me to shave off my moustache, I was hesitant. But when we reached New Jersey, he took me to a few software offices and we never saw a single person with moustache. I wear subtle colored formals throughout with jelled hair and glasses. I had this nerd look and I found out that even in offices there, people behave in a casual manner.
Your chemistry with Sneha who plays your wife is rocking?
How was John Shea, the Hollywood actor in the film?
He was an amazing guy. He is 60-yearold but is so energetic and hardworking. It was a wonderful team.
Do you think that Achchamundu Achchamundu can put you to the next level and give you that elusive hit?
I am not bothered about hits or flops. I have made mistakes in the past regarding my career moves but I realized it and is more focused. As an actor, Achchamundu Achchamundu will definitely take me one step ahead.
Your upcoming films?
I have completed Nanayam and is working on Baana.
