I am much like my character in 'Masooda' in real life: Actor Thiruveer


'Masooda', starring Thiruveer in the role of a young professional who goes out of his way to help his neighbour, was released on November 18. In his latest interview, Thiruveer thanked the audience.

"I got to learn about this project from cinematographer Jagadish Cheekati while doing a film titled 'Pareshan'. I accepted to do 'Masooda' because Swadharm Entertainment was producing it. I was told I would be roped in only if producer Rahul Yadav Nakka approves my casting. I auditioned for the role and was made to utter some English lines," Thiruveer said.

The 'George Reddy' actor was feeling bad that he was being offered negative roles. At one point, he asked himself if he is fit only for such roles. "Everyone wants to play lead roles. I played a prominent role in 'Palasa 1978'. But it is 'Masooda' that gave me my first solo poster officially," Thiruveer said.

He didn't find it hard to portray the character in 'Masooda' for the reason that he is much like Gopi in real life. "The stunts that I do in the climax were difficult to pull off, though," he added.

He wants to play the kind of characters that Kamal Haasan played in 'Drohi', 'Vichitra Sodarulu' and 'Swathi Muthyam'. "I want to be a versatile actor," Thiruveer says. "I have no intentions to be just a hero. The likes of Prakash Raj and Kota Srinivasa Rao have made a name for themselves as artists," Thiruveer says.

Thiruveer is currently waiting for the release of three movies and a web series of his. 'Pareshan' is the first of them. Another film titled 'Mokshapatam' is also in the making. Besides, a web series produced by Vyjayanthi Movies is in the making. 'Parahushaar', another film, is also on the cards.
