For Aditya Menon, working with Saran in his forthcoming film resembled a homecoming of sorts.
“Saran got me into motion pictures in 2003, when he cast me in Jay. I did Anjaneya (coordinated by Maharajan) and Jay all the while. I additionally did Vattaram with him. During the most recent couple of years, I was occupied with Telugu and Kannada films. At the point when Saran called me for this film, I simply needed to do it for him,” starts the entertainer, “Saran is a dear companion, and I regard him a great deal. He’d sort of taken a break and I’m happy he thought of me when he chose to make Market Raja MBBS . He rang me one day and gave a brief about the character. He inquired as to whether I could accomplish something to that effect, and I said yes right away. It’s a funniness based job, something which I’ve for a long while been itching to do.”
Though Aditya is reluctant to reveal details about his character, he says, “I’m with Arav throughout the film. When there’s a mishap, my character brings him out of the mess.”
The actor says he’s thrilled to work with Saran after a hiatus. “We both have come out of KB’s camp. In fact, it was K Balachander sir who introduced me to him. The benefit I have with Saran is that he lets me experiment. There are directors who tell actors what they exactly want. And then, there are those who tell us, ‘This is the situation, show me what all you can do’, and Saran is like that. From then till now, he has not restricted me to just standing and delivering dialogues in his films,” he says.
After having played antagonists and serious roles, doing a comic role was a refreshing change, Aditya adds. “I started with theatre, and the majority of roles that I did on stage were comedy-based. When I shifted to the movie industry, I realised that comedy is a complicated thing. In the sense, you need to know the local flavour to get the essence of the humour right. A bad guy is a bad guy in any language, but it’s not the same for comic roles. So, I started taking up character and villain roles that came my way. Now, I’m really happy to be doing comedy-based characters,” he signs off.
