Actor Kailash, son of producer Siva Prasad Reddy, is all set to make his Telugu debut with Tej I Love You, directed by Karunakaran. While many star kids choose to debut as a hero, interestingly, Kailash will be seen in the role of a baddie in the Sai Dharam Tej-starrer. Sharing more details, Kailash says, “I was born and raised in Chennai. My father encouraged me to come into films. I used to visit the sets with him and got fascinated by showbiz.” He adds, “I underwent an acting course with Satyanand and later went to Thailand to pick up fights and rope work.”
The 25-year-old says that his father has advised him to take up unique roles. “He wants me to be confident in whatever I do,” shares Kailash, adding, “He has advised me to pick up unique roles initially so that I can distinguish myself and understand the nuances of the art. Since such roles require a lot of hard work, he felt that I could get a hang of difficult tasks.” Describing his role in the film as ‘interesting’, Kailash adds, “I play the hero’s far away cousin and my role gets a different twist. Since I have done a few shorts and am not new to the camera, I was able to put my best foot forward. The experience of working for the film has been fantastic.”
Kailash reveals that Akhil Akkineni is his good friend. “We bond well and hangout whenever we have time,” shares Kailash, who will also be seen in substantial roles in Nagarjuna and Nani’s multi-starrer as well as Akhil’s next film.
