The producer, who has high expectations on his latest production, says, “Today’s youngsters need a different space. Inidhu Inidhu is all about the the youth of today. The film has eight newcomers.”

His debut directorial venture was Naanu Nanna Kanasu, which was a remake of the Tamil flick Abhiyum Nanum. And his latest production Inidhu Inidhu in Tamil is also a remake of the successful Telugu movie Happy Days. When asked about his love for remakes, he says, “It’s a matter of inspiration, not remaking. Don’t you read Shakespeare in Kannada? Don’t you eat pizzas here? When you easily accept all these things, why do you tag films as remakes? There is no harm in reproducing good films in other languages,” he adds.

The talented actor enjoys each moment of his life. “I am celebrating my life. The word boredom is not in my dictionary. I live the way I want. I always keep my mind cool and never get tensed,” he avers. Rai agrees that he is getting offers from every corner of the world.

At the same time, he says it is too early to disclose anything and expresses his wish to direct more movies.

This actor started his career with Doordarshan serials and has now emerged as one of the most sought-after actors in the South Indian industry.  After spending nearly two decades in the industry, how does he describe his journey so far? “Mind blowing,” his answer is quick.

“Acting just happened to me. All beautiful things in my life happened accidentally. I am happy with what I am today,” he quips.

He is all set to tie the knot with Pony Verma. “Yes, I am marrying her in Mumbai and after that, I will be throwing parties in Bangalore and Chennai.”

He didn’t want to elaborate on it. Rai received the National Award for the best actor in 2009 for Kanchivaram.
