Having been part of a handful of youthful films, actor Viswant Duddumpudi is now venturing into a different a genre, a family drama. His forthcoming film, Tholubommalata, directed by Viswanath Mahanti, explores the relationship between a grandfather (played by Rajendra Prasad) and grandson.
“I play a software engineer, and this is the first time I am doing a family drama; the film is contemporary take on how people and their relationships change during the important times,” reveals Viswant.
The actor, who clearly doesn’t want to be typecast, is also currently shooting for a horror thriller, apart from two other love story genre films. “I feel that I have to give the audience something new with each project,” he says.
That being said, the actor has another reason for having signed up for Tholubommalata. “I spent a lot of time studying aboard and bonding with friends, but I’ve been staying with my family for the last three years. It sort of made me appreciate the emotional relationships in a family,” says Viswant.
