Prajwal’s much-hyped film Ziddi has released and the actor says that his character in the film was a ‘dream role’.

The crux of the story revolves around how an ordinary, sober man is forced by circumstances to turn violent just to survive.

The film, a remake of Malayalam film Puthiya Mukham, has been tweaked to suit the local tastes.

“I have to portray a range of emotions and that’s a challenge in itself. But I really like the way a calm man is forced to change his character just to defend his right to live. These are strong, contrasting roles,” Prajwal tells Metrolife.

Prajwal feels the character has given him enough scope to explore a range of emotions.

“There are very intense scenes in the film since the same man does two contrasting characters. Harassment from unwanted elements turns a soft-hearted guy into a tough man and it was a challenge for me to make the same guy appear soft and tough,” explains Prajwal. 

Prajwal’s looks too change along with his character. In the first half of the film, he is clean shaven with short hair and in the second part, he wears a more rugged look.

 “I have watched the original and I really liked the way actor Prithviraj has worked around the role. I also had to build my body and my strength for the fight scenes in the movie,” explains Prajwal.

Prajwal caught the first day, first show of the movie at popular theatre in the City and was thrilled to see people hooting and cheering during every scene.

“There has been a tremendous response from the people and the show opened to a full house. That also made the producer safe,” he shares. 

Aindrita and Prajwal were last seen together in Nannavanu and he admits that both of them were looking forward to working together again.

“Aindrita and I meet outside quite often but it had been a long time since we met on the sets and worked together. We’re both thrilled about the response to the film,” Prajwal signs off.
