Sometime ago, senior hero Rajasekhar had openly aid that he was ready to play the villain role in Megastar Chiranjeevi’s 150th film if given a chance. What came as a surprising revelation from the horse’s mouth itself is that he even showed interest to play the villain in a Ram Charan-starrer too.
During a recent interview, Rajasekhar divulged that he had approached Chiru and showed interest to play the villain role in “Dhruva” as well. Elaborating on the same, he reportedly said, ‘I watched the Tamil film and I really liked the villain character. When they were vigorously hunting for the actor to step into Arvind Swamy’s shoes in the remake, I met Chiranjeevi and offered to do the role. Sometime later, I got a call from producer NV Prasad informing that they had decided to retain Arvind Swamy for the Telugu remake since they could use several shots from the Tamil version.”
Its no exaggeration that Arvind Swamy lived in the villain role in Dhruva, but wouldn’t it have been more interesting had Rajasekhar played that character?
Rajasekhar said he was grateful to Chiru for extending support to his new film, “Garuda Vega”.
