On the occasion of his Birthday (Dec 17), the stars have surely aligned in favor of Actor Adivi Sesh as we can confirm that he has signed 2 huge pan India films. One film is slated to be a mind-bending spy thriller, and the other one is an official remake of an Oscar-winning film.
In recent news, he will be seen in the much-awaited film, “Major”, which will be released in Hindi and Telugu. As the movie marks his debut in Hindi cinema. Adivi plays the lead role of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, who sacrificed his life for the nation during the 26-11 terrorist attack in Mumbai on Nov 26, 2011. The trailer has already created a strong buzz in the trade as well as with the audiences that cement the star power that Sesh carries.
Many are not aware that Adivi was born in Hyderabad but soon shifted to the US as a child. Growing up in California, the actor always had an inclination to the cinema. He has done some amazing movies to his credit before making his foray into Bollywood. His film, which acted as well as wrote the screenplay for, “Kshanam” was a commercial success and it went on to get nominated for numerous awards. Sesh won the IIFA Award for the Best Screenplay and the Nandi Award for the Best Screenplay Writer for the movie Kshanam. In 2018, he was seen in Goodachari, an action thriller released to positive reviews and became a super hit and closed on 6 September at the box office, 33 days after release. The film was written by him and directed by Sashi Kiran Tikka.
Speaking on his birthday and more, Adivi AKA Major stated that, “This year after a long time, I will have a smile on my birthday because this year, after a long time, I will get to spend it with my mom and dad, who have moved here from the United States, they were living there for a while. I usually get to miss my birthday or celebrate it on a video camera, because they are somewhere else and I am somewhere else so this will be good, to be able to spend it in person with them means a lot, especially in this pandemic. Also, I am looking forward to the efforts of the entire team that has put together Major, and also what the country thinks of it, and the Hindi space as well, I am excited to see the reaction that a Dilli Wala has to this film, to the operation of 26-11, to a life well-lived, I am so curious to see how India’s son truly reaches out to all of India. I am also fortunate and thankful that even before the release of Major, I have got a couple of projects signed that are all Indian films, and will be made in Hindi as well and will be Pan Indian releases. They will cater to a Hindi market, rather than just being dubbed, so the idea is to make them authentic and relevant to an audience across India, rather than just an opportunity to expand my market.”
Coming to the much-awaited Major, a gripping film that is inspired by true events, it portrays how real-life hero Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan played by Adivi, saved the lives of numerous hostages before being martyred by terrorists in the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai on November 26, 2008, during the infamous attack on the heritage hotel. Post the release of Major, we can be prepared to see Adivi in 2 more Pan India films that he has now signed, stay tuned for more details!
