Lovely star Prem Kumar will soon be seen on the silver screen in the movie Fair And Lovely. The actor gave an interview to Filmibeat and spoke about the movie and his upcoming projects. Here are some excerpts of the interview.
Filmibeat: Your upcoming movie is Fair & Lovely. What is the movie about?
Prem: The main plot of the movie is about a guy who always tried to keep other around him happy and cheerful. But when he meets a depressed girl, his life changes. How he tried to get the girl out of her depression while facing all odds is one of the main theme of the story.
Filmibeat: What role do you play in the movie and what made you accept it?
Prem: My role suits the title of the movie Fair & Lovely. My character is basically a nice guy who is respectful towards others and specially towards women. My character in the movie is a real hero in all sense. He fights hard for what he believes is right and at the same time has a gentleness inside his heart. A character like this has always been appealing to me.
Filmibeat: Actress Shwetha Srivastav plays a sex worker in the movie. Do you think the movie will change the notion of society towards sex workers?
Prem: Well this is certainly an attempt. We have to acknowledge that sex workers are also humans and an effort has to be made to understand the plights of these people. I feel entertainment is a very powerful medium to bring in a social message and we certainly have tried our best to do so.
Filmibeat: What are your upcoming projects?
Prem: After Fair & Lovely, I will be in a movie titled Male. The movie will be produced by R Chandru and I will be acting with Amulya in the movie.
Filmibeat: Is there any particular director you would like to work with?
Prem: I do not have any such preference. For me any director who is passionate about making movies is worth working with. Like every other actor, even I would want to work with famous directors. However, I have no problem working with young directors who have a passion towards movies.
