Kollywood has always welcomed north Indian actors, especially as villains, in films. From Vidyut Jammwal to Neil Nitin Mukesh, B’town baddies have found great recognition down south. Joining this list is Rajveer Singh, a sportsperson-turned-actor from Haryana, who is debuting in Kalaparabhu’s Indrajith.
Talking to DC, Rajveer tells, “The film is the first of it’s kind for its Indiana Jones-like theme. It has some action, thrills and fantasy elements in it. When the story moves to a jungle in the second half, I play the character that takes on the hero and his team.” Indrajith, produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu, also stars Ashrita Shetty, Sonarika Bhadoria, Sudhanshu Pandey and Prathap Pothen.
Speaking about shooting tough stunts in the dense jungles, Rajveer shares, “It was a great experience and the team was great to work with. We completed the last schedule a couple of months ago in the forests of Kerala — and although it was a challenge to shoot there, the team just made it easy.”
The young hunk is trying the best to hone his Tamil skills — right from watching films to reality shows on TV. “Many talented actors from Bollywood have shined in Tamil. I think I have the rugged look to complement south Indian movies in general, and I would feel gifted to work with directors here who produce world-class work.” Rajveer concludes.
