Actor Sundeep Kishan will don khaki for the second time in his acting career in the upcoming Tamil-Telugu sci-fi thriller Mayavan, which marks the directorial debut of producer CV Kumar.
"I play a slightly short-tempered, realistic police officer. I'm quite excited about the role and I'm really kicked about working with producer Kumar, a man with a vision. We've been friends for a long time and it's lovely to be working together finally," Sundeep told IANS.
Sundeep had also donned khaki for his Telugu film DK Bose which, unfortunately, never saw the light of the day. He doesn't consider the police character being jinxed after DK Bose.
"I don't believe in such things. As a team, we're confident about this project and I'm really looking forward to start shooting," he said, adding that the film is a commercial outing with a sci-fi angle.
The film, which has screenplay and dialogues by Nalan Kumarasamy, also stars Lavanya Tripathi and Daniel Balaji in important roles.
