Actor Ajmal is looking forward to the release of popular director Vamsy's Telugu film Tanu Monne Vellipoyindi (TMV), which incidentally is the auteur's 25th movie. The doctor-turned-actor, who made his debut in Mollywood with Pranayakalam in 2007, said the film is Vamsy's 25th and he is excited to be a part of the venture. The movie's music launch was held early this month. Chakri has composed the music for the film.
Talking to PTI, Ajmal said, "The movie is due for release this month or early February. It is basically a romantic comedy. There are 3-4 girls in the movie and it is about a boy who goes out in search of his childhood friend." The other film the actor is eagerly looking forward is Prabhanjanam. "It is the story of an engineering student, how he enters politics and becomes the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister," he said.
Asked if it was similar to the role he played in the 2011 Tamil blockbuster KO, he said "Yes, something like that". Ajmal's role as the scheming Vasantha Perumal in KO fetched him the Filmfare award for the best supporting actor. The cast includes Nasser, Kota Srinivas Rao and Arushi, he said.
The actor, who shot to fame with his brooding anti-hero role in the 2008 Tamil film Anjathey, bagging the Filmfare award for the best supporting actor in the process, is very choosy about scripts. He is not keen on signing all and everything that comes his way.
"What is the point in doing roles without substance." After KO, several offers came his way but he declined as the scripts were not to his taste. He is of the opinion that people recognise an actor by the varied characters he/she enacts. Mere signing on the dotted line will not help an actor in the long run," he said.
