After playing Dhanush’s younger brother in Vellai Illa Pattathari, Hrishikesh will be seen in the lead of a racy action horror titled Rum. The actor, who is also the cousin of music director Anirudh, believes that a good script is gospel, and wants to explore all the possible genres of acting. “Acting has always interested me since childhood and I started acting in commercials when I was schooling. Then I studied visual communication. So I suppose it is destiny,” he says and hopes that Rum would give him a big break in Kollywood.

“I am open to any fresh script and determined to give by best. In fact, I have always longed to be associated with films like OK Kanmani, which is not conventional yet successful. When filmmaker Sai approached me with the script, I liked it and wanted to be a part of it. Sai did filmmaking in the US and have also assisted in directing a Hollywood flick,” he adds. Speaking about Rum, Hrishikesh says he plays a smart-intellectual guy in the film.

 

“This wouldn’t be like those regular horror films. The story has been treated in a different way and has an engaging screenplay,” he assures us. While Sanchita Shetty, Mia George, Narain and Vivekh play pivotal roles in this film, Anirudh has been roped in to compose music. Ask Hrishikesh if he’s game for negative roles? He grins, “Not now really because I’d love to see myself evolving as an actor. First, the audience should accept me for whatever I am. And I don't want to be a villain where I’m aimlessly beating up some people.”
