Actor Upen Patel is all set to start shooting with Atharvaa Murali for ‘Boomerang’.
He said the new trend seems to be of Bollywood heroes getting negative roles in the southern film industry.
Upen had played a negative role in Shankar’s Telugu film ‘I’.
The actor said, “I have been lucky enough to be given my debut in the southern film industry by Shankar sir with ‘I’, whose next is ‘2.0’ with Rajinikanth sir and Akshay Kumar, where Akshay will be seen in a negative role.”
“Bollywood heroes turning into southern film villains seems to be the new trend. I am just thankful to be part of great cinema and to be able to work in both Hindi and south industries,” he said.
He further said, “The film is definitely commercial, but since it is a thriller, I can’t reveal much about the film. It is not a typical thriller, where a story revolves around a love story and betrayal but it’s a unique story.”
‘Boomerang’ is directed and produced by R Kannan.
It also features Megha Akash, Sathish, RJ Balaji and Suhasini Maniratnam.–CINEWS
