Dhruv Vikram, who is all set to make his debut soon with ‘Adithya Varma’, shared many interesting details during an interactive session with students at Dr GR Damodaran College of Science in Coimbatore recently.
The young actor, who is the son of ‘Chiyaan’ Vikram, told students: ““I am not a big shot and I am only as old as you all. Don’t call me Sir. Call me Dhruv.”
On how became an actor and his experience working in ‘Adithya Varma’, he said, “Right from my childhood, I have been seeing my father on screen. When fans whistled and cheered for him in theatres, I used to think that the adulation was for me. I have watched many of his films and experienced fanfare.
When I shot for Adithya Varma, dad was with me throughout the shoot every day. I did whatever he asked me to do. I had gone abroad to learn acting and after working in Varma that was scrapped later, I had a bit of acting experience, too. But I think you will see my dad on screen, not me.”
The film is a remake of Telugu blockbuster ‘Arjun Reddy’. “When you do a remake, you have to respect the original script and stick to certain things. You do what has already been done. But you can certainly add your style,” he added.
