Actor Satyadev Kancharana has come a long way since playing a key role in the Telugu film Maine Pyar Kiya. After eventually scoring a lead role in Puri Jagannadh’s Jyothi Lakshmi and more key roles in critically acclaimed films like Kshanam and Ghazi, the actor feels that things are pretty solid for him at the moment.
Nearly eight months after his last release, Satya is ready with two films Guvva Gorinka and 47 Days both of which will see him in lead roles. “I have always been keen to explore things that are new for me, and I am glad that every role I have done so far has given me the scope to do so. I wish to keep going in the same way,” he shares.
What’s interesting is that despite playing the protagonist in his upcoming films, Satya is keen to detach himself from the ‘hero’ tag. “I am the lead, no doubt, but I am not the hero. I think the term hero comes with a lot of baggage,” he says with a laugh, adding, “I love filmmaking as a process and acting is one element that is dear to me. When I began my journey in films, I never thought I’d be playing the lead in my films and was keen to move ahead with roles that give me scope to act. However, Jyothi Lakshmi came as a game changer in my life. I started looking at things with a different perspective.”
Quiz the Vizag lad on his future plans, he reveals, “I had started off making short films in the beginning of my career. And directing a film could happen sometime soon. I keep writing stories that I might want to bring to life one day.”...
