'I don't do multiple films at once'

Actor Sanchari Vijay’s role in the recently released project ‘Maarikondavaru’ might be small, but he is happy that he is part of the film.

In a candid chat with Tini Sara Anien, the humble National Film award winner talks about his role and more.

 What made you opt for this project?

This was before the National Award for ‘Naanu Avanalla...Avalu’ came. I approached the director, Shivarudraiah K for the role and he told me that it was an important one, yet with minimal screenspace. I was looking to be part of good movies. To me, every role is an important one. So, I accepted it.

Can you tell me about your role?

I am one of the four protagonists who battles corruption. More than just my role, I wanted to be a part of this film because it had actors like Samyukta Hornad and Sonu
Gowda. They were already noted actors then and it turned out to be a great learning experience. I was a beginner then and it was a great platform.

Which do you prefer — parallel or commercial cinema?

Different traits are required to be a part of non-commercial films. These movies are very realistic and I feel lucky that I was part of movies like ‘Naanu Avanalla...Avalu’ where I played a transgender woman.

There is a lot of work involved like observing the character’s mannerism and lifestyle before playing such roles. Parallel cinema is entirely performance-based. Movies are movies though and I would like to work in all of them.

Where will we see you next?

I have 11 Kannada movies coming up, of which six are done. The ones that have been completed included ‘Varthamana’, a thriller project with a difference; ‘Krishna Thulasi’ where I will playing a visually-handicapped tourist guide and ‘Nanmagale Heroine’, which is a commercial movie. I am also very excited about ‘Phirangipura’, where I will play
an 80-year-old. There is also be a project with veteran director S K Bhagavan.

 How have you been balancing it out?

If I have to do a complete makeover for a film, I take time to finish it before jumping into another. I don’t do multiple films at once. It has been hectic but I like to give time
for every film. Many senior actors multitask but it is not something I can do.
