Having been successful in all of his movies related to the mafia, actor Aditya seems to hold the kind of charm that is acceptable when in a dangerous plot. With Deadly Soma, Deadly 2 and Edegarike, the 20-odd films old actor is looking forward to another biggie, Bengaluru Underworld, which will hit the theatres this week.
With the action and the curiosity that drives the lives of the underworld on screen, Aditya maintains that he has always strived to be an artiste who tries to portray difficult characters in a simple way. “I took time for Bengaluru Underworld because I did not want to get into something which I was not convinced with. So my first priority was the script and the director,” he says and adds that the combination with director PN Sathya made his decision easier. “I had an opportunity to work with him twice, but I missed out. I am glad that we could come together with Bengaluru Underworld. He has projected my character well and made sure that it is unique in the way the narrative flows,” he mentions.
Speaking about Bengaluru Underworld, the actor emphasises that it is not just another underworld subject. “The film deviates from the usual mafia film formula. It is unpredictable, with enough suspense and an unimaginable climax,” says the actor, who mentions that while in the past he was known to his fans by his screen name, Bengaluru Underworld will give him a new persona. “After Deadly Soma, people started calling me ‘Deadly’. Later when Edegarike released, they called me ‘Sona’. With this film, I will be known as ‘Malik’,” he reveals.
The actor makes special mention about Anoop Seelin’s background score, which he says will be one of the highlights of the film. Apparently, a couple of misguided films had stalled his soaring career, but the actor insists that he has ensured not to go after emotional bonding for a film, but stick to the worthiness of script and characterisation. “I have stopped doing movies out of emotional attachments. If I am taking time for my next release, it is only because I am looking for good scripts,” he says.
