Q: How was your experience acting with Mammootty?
A: I started as Vijay’s brother in Bagavathi and I have now acted as Mammooty’s brother in Madura Raja. It was an unforgettable experience. Mammootty said that even I would become a busy actor in Malayalam after this film. Mahima Nambiar plays my love interest in Madura Raja.

Q: Are you ready to act with Vijay again?
A: I was waiting to act with Vijay again after Bagavathi. But Vijay advised me that I would not be able to make a name for myself if I act under his shadow. That is why I signed up for Chennai 600028 after Bagavathi. But today, if I get a chance to act with Vijay, I will definitely take it.

Q: Tell us about your upcoming films.
A: I play two different characters in Neeya 2 – a romantic horror film staring Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Raai Laxmi and Catherine Tresa. The film’s shoot is complete and is getting ready for release. My film with director, Venkat Prabhu – Party is also ready. I play a character with a comedy mixed negative shade. It is a typical Venkat Prabhu film and will hit the screens in two months. I will also be joining hands with director Sasikumar, and it could be Subramaniapuram 2.

Q: How is your love life going?
A: As of now, there is no love nor marriage in my life. As I have a lot of films lined up this year, I have not even thought about it.
