'I enjoyed playing a different character'

 Actor Tilak dons the role of a film director in his latest release ‘Sarvasva’. The actor feels that his job was made easier because the director of the film, Shreyas Kabadi M, had a definite vision and idea about what he wanted from him. It is the opportunity to work on a fresh script with a new team that made Tilak accept this film.

He feels that here there’s a visible change in the way the director and scriptwriter have experimented with a new subject.

In an interview with Nina C George, Tilak talks about the making of the movie and
more.

What made you accept ‘Sarvasva’?

I liked the way the story was written. It is a romantic-thriller that talks about how most youngsters are stuck between spending time with the one they love and concentrating on building a career. Youngsters can easily relate to the situations shown in the film.

What is the story like?

It is about two friends and their struggle to fulfil their dream. These two young men, who happen to be childhood friends, come together to build a career in the world of cinema.
Whether they manage to strike a balance between their love life and careers forms the crux of the story.

How was it to play a director?

After playing a series of negative roles in my previous projects, my character in this film has come as a huge relief. A director’s job is not an easy one but I have tried to deliver exactly what was expected of me. I enjoyed playing a different character here.

Have you undergone a makeover for your role?

We have tried to keep the looks very simple and straight. We haven’t gone overboard with either the makeup or the body language because we wanted the people to relate to the characters and make a connection with them.

How was it to work with a young crew?

It was a great learning experience. I loved the energy and enthusiasm of the newcomers. They were always willing to explore and experiment with their characters. It was nice to see how open they were to learning.

On the surge of new talent in the Kannada film industry...

It is a great time for the Kannada film industry because there are a lot of youngsters who are coming in with new ideas to create experimental cinema.

The audience too are embracing the changes very well. This is an encouraging sign.
