The performance of actor-cum-writer Adivi Sesh in the recently released "Kshanam" has fetched him two Bollywood projects. However, the actor is yet to give his consent to the makers of those films.
In a statement to IANS, a source close to Adivi Sesh confirmed the news about the Bollywood offers and claimed the actor is all excited about it, but is in no hurry to sign them. Thrilled with the success of "Kshanam," he is currently touring theatres across the Telugu states to thank the viewers for their love and support.
"During the course of this week, he has been offered two Hindi projects. One of the projects is from a well-known banner. Adivi hasn't taken a call on the offers yet as he's busy with the success tour of 'Kshanam'. He's happy with the offers but is in no mood to rush. He's also glad that 'Kshanam' is doing extremely well and is being raved by audiences and critics alike," the source told IANS.
"Kshanam" is a Telugu suspense thriller drama film, which is about the disappearance of a young girl and the events that follow. Released in 500 screens across the world Feb 26, the movie opened to superb response and maintained great momentum at the ticket counters everywhere on the following days. Allu Arjun, Rana Daggubati and some other leading celebs appreciated the work of the team.
On Feb 29, Rana Daggubati tweeted, "Just watched a Telugu film with international writing editing direction and performance 'Kshanam' @AdiviSesh." Allu Arjun tweeted a picture and wrote, "My personal note about the movie #Kshanam ! Congratulations @AdiviSesh , Dir N the entire Team"
The caption on Bunny's Twitter photo reads, "I had a policy not to publicly tweet about any good or bad film. But for once I am making an exception to support the film Kshanam. I personally liked and admired the way new age Telugu Directors and Actors are making good films. And taking Telugu film industry a step ahead. Suspense thriller movie lovers must watch."
The bosses of PVP Cinema are said to be in talks with some Bollywood filmmakers for the remake of "Kshanam." Leading Bollywood film critic Taran Adarsh, who watched the Telugu film, could not stop raving about it. On Wednesday, he tweeted, "Some films leave an indelible impact. #Kshanam [Telugu] is a wonderful film where every department works in tandem to cast a spell..."
Taran Adarsh added, "Director Ravikanth Perepu and writer Adivi Sesh shun the usual template of thrillers with #Kshanam. Serpentine twists-turns is its USP... #Kshanam speaks a universal language. If you relish thrillers with a nail-biting finale, it should be on your agenda of 'Must Watch' movies!"
