In just five years of his showbiz journey, Rahul Ramakrishna has made a name for himself. Be it a part of the supporting or lead cast, the actor has a marked manner of charming the audience. His forthcoming film, NET, which is directed by Bhargav Macharla, features the actor in yet another interesting, rooted role. The film’s story revolves around the voyeuristic pornography. Voyeurism refers to watching or recording content without one’s consent.
“I play a guy who hails from Nalgonda and runs a mobile store. In the film, I have the habit of watching porn, and I have an addiction for pleasure. The plot of the film unfolds after I come across Avika Gor’s character in the film,” he explains.
Admitting that talking about porn in public platforms and spaces is taboo, the actor says that it’s a raging problem in many countries.
“The film is set up in this backdrop but there’s more to the film than this, including layered characters with several emotions,” says the actor, adding that regardless of the outcome, this film will be talked about post-release.
Naturally, we are curios if the film is anywhere similar to the ongoing Raj Kundra pornography case. However, Rahul’s answer leaves us slightly sceptic. “My film releasing at this time could be a coincidence, but I don’t know about that controversy,” he says simply.
Finding his balance centre
With several films to his credit, the actor has had an eventful journey, which according to him has been entertaining and thoroughly satisfying too. Previously a rookie journo, Rahul reveals that he had an inclination towards creative writing and arts since his childhood.
“I’ve also done theatre for a brief period. But it’s my career as a scribe that helped me understand people and build character narratives,” explains the Jaathi Ratnalu star.
So, early in his career, Rahul also wrote the dialogues for the 2016-film Jayammu Nischayammu Raa as well as songs for the National-Award winning 2016-film Pelli Choopulu. “I was always fascinated with cultural arts and I love to dabble in various opportunities life throws at me,” he explains.
