I’m eager to play a powerful villain: Sricharan

Sricharan is quite stoked about the response he has been receiving for his recently-released film Thani Oruvan, in which he plays a cop
Payanam fame Sricharan is a happy man these days. The lawyer-actor, who rose to fame with films like 180 and Gouravam, is quite stoked about the response he has been receiving for his recently-released film Thani Oruvan, in which he plays a cop.
Says Sricharan in an elated tone, “I never expected my character to be such widely appreciated by everyone! Though I play quite a small role, I am proud and thankful to be a part of such a big film. Throughout the film, I travel with the hero. I want to be a part of such interesting projects where I don’t get typecast.”
For Sricharan, Thani Oruvan has been a great learning experience and he heaps praise on Jayam Ravi, who is apparently very down-to-earth and doesn’t have any air about being a star.
“I was very comfortable on the sets and we were pulling each other’s leg all the time. We were like a gang of friends having fun and we didn’t know when the film got wrapped up at all! It was that super cool,” he quips.
What kind of films he would love to be a part of in the future? “As long as the script is convincing enough, I’m cool with it. Be it any role for that matter — romantic, humorous, or even a negative character — I am comfortable doing anything. I don’t mind appearing even in one scene, but that has to be worthwhile,” smiles the soft-spoken actor.
He also addresses the concern that his physique won’t suit him playing a negative role. “Many have said that in the past! But I am determined to do a powerful negative role. I have been putting on muscle and growing a mustache too. Usually, I am with the clean shaven look,” Sricharan says, quickly points out Arvind Swami. “Look at him in Thani Oruvan. He was one of the most sought after heroes during the early 90s. But now he is playing a powerful villain. Though he doesn’t have the quintessential baddie look, he pulled it off so effortlessly. I want to do something like that and I don’t mind waiting for good roles.”
So, given a choice to quit either his lawyer career or acting... “I never speak about my lawyer avatar to anyone unless I am asked. I love to balance both my lives and I’m reluctant to quit either! Acting happened because of my infectious enthusiasm and passion, whereas by profession, I am a lawyer. I don’t confuse both. At the end of the day, acting in films gives me immense satisfaction and what matters to me is that,” he signs off.
