After tasting success with four of his films – Kshanam, Oopiri, Ami Thumi and Evaru – at the box office consecutively, Adivi Sesh has bagged an interesting role. This time around he will be seen playing the martyred soldier, Sundeep Unnikrishnan, who laid down his life in the Mumbai 26/11 terror attacks. The film is titled Major and will be directed by Sashi Kiran Tikka.

On getting to play the role, Adivi Sesh told the Deccan Chronicle in an interview, “I have to look extremely fit and slim. I am going to lose 10 kg in the next three months before we start shooting for Major. A strict diet plan has been worked out, and I intend to follow it faithfully. Luckily, I don’t have to avoid my mom’s food because she lives in California… I’ve to look and think like a true soldier. I don’t want to fake it.”

Mahesh Babu is making his debut as a producer with this project and is bankrolling it under his banner Ghattamaneni Mahesh Babu Entertainment (GMB) in association with Sony Pictures Productions.

Adivi Sesh’s last release was Evaru, which had hit the marquee earlier this month. The film is directed by Venkat Ramji with dialogues by Abburi Ravi. The technical crew of this flick includes Sricharan Pakala for music composition, Vamsi Patchipulusu for cranking the camera and Garry BH for editing. Regina Cassandra plays the female lead in this flick with Naveen Chandra and Murli Sharma in pivotal roles. Evaru was bankrolled by Pearl V Potluri, Param V Potluri and Kavin Anne under the banner PVP Cinemas.

It may be noted here that Adivi Sesh announced that he will be working on the sequel to the hit movie, Goodachari, after he is done with Major. More details about this project are expected to be out soon.
