Roshan Basheer's fan'tastic take off

In real life, Roshan Basheer is an ardent Vijay fan, reveals the Bairavaa actor.

There was in Kochi a die-hard Vijay fan. Come what may, he made it a point to get seated inside the movie hall on first day, first show every time an Ilayathalapathy film hit the screens in Kerala. That boy, Roshan Basheer had many a dream-come-true moments acting with his super star in Bairavaa. With all those stars still glowing bright in his cat-eyes, Roshan begins narrating his K-Town experience with his screen idol.

“Before Bairavaa, I had actually completed the shoot of Moondru Rasigargal, which is all about three hardcore Vijay fans. I was one to lead the course of the movie. So there on the sets of Bairavaa, I said this to Vijay sir and he was asking me questions as if there is any part he can help me do. Actually, the entire shooting was over by the time I started this project with him. All that time I spent with him were fan boy moments,” Roshan gushes.

Roshan’s character Charan, a college-boy, is a friend of Keerthy Suresh (Malarvizhi). He speaks highly of both Vijay and Keerthy for their super cool attitude plus the supportive and friendly approach with him. Meanwhile, out of the blue fell a troll upon him on a casual-looking photo of Vijay and Roshan. Again, he got lambasted for those pair of solitaires on his face, which impart on him an in-built villainous look. He was loathed on social media as if he had least regard for the star sitting next to him.

This is what Roshan has to say, “I have seen those comments and took it in the right spirit. Actually Bairavaa has helped in changing people’s perception about me. Those negative roles in Drishyam and Papanasam had made me a hate object for others. Wherever I went, the feel was palpable. For no fault of mine, I was subjected to intense stares,” he smiles. The fan boy didn’t break his routine at the release of Bairavaa. Not the first show though, he secured his ticket for the second screening on the tremendously crowded day one. He was happy when viewers started recognising the person sitting with them when his part appeared on the giant screen. Tamil doesn’t look like loosening its grip on this Malayali boy. Roshan can’t turn a deaf ear to the proposals coming his way so he’s shifting base to Tamil Nadu within a few weeks and is happy to be in Malayalam when right opportunities beckon.
