Shaam, who has predominantly appeared in Tamil movies right throughout his career, made his mark in Sandalwood by featuring in an interesting role in AMR Ramesh's Game.
Now, the 39 year old actor is all set to appear in another Kannada film. Also featuring Yash and Radhika Pandit in lead roles, the film will portray Shaam as a good guy with negative shades.
"I took up this role for a couple of reason. One, of course, is the character. I play a good-hearted guy, who just happens to be part of a business that thrives on negativity. It is a rather stylish role and I sport an interesting look. Yes, the character has shades of grey, but it is an interesting shade of grey," Shaam has told to Times of India.
But his character is not the sole reason why he decided to sign on the dotted lines.
"The other reason is that the team is superb - with Yash and Radhika playing lead roles, and the fact that the film is backed by K Manju, has Mahesh as the director and Andrew as the cinematographer. It sure is a package we all dream of," he has said.
