Abhimanyu Singh had his own share of pleasant experiences with Sridevi on the sets of their recently released film “Mom”. Sharing one of his experiences, Abhimanyu described how Sridevi’s stardom & personality never intimated her, instead her experience helped Abhimanyu perform his scenes to utmost perfection “I was supposed to slap Sridevi ji & man handle her in one of the scenes. It was one of the most difficult scenes of my life. Later Sridevi ji spoke to me & discussed the scene with me so that I could get over my hesitation & nervousness. She asked me to forget who she was & just perform the scene where an antagonist is slapping a protagonist. The scene which is receiving so much appreciation is the result of her motivation.”
Talking of acting with Sridevi, he adds, “It was a dream come true to be in the same frame as Srideviji. I have grown up watching her films and when I was offered the role, I just had to say yes. But, I felt bad when I had to be menacing and trouble Srideviji in the film.” Revealing his happiness the delighted actor says “I am flooded with phone calls and sms-es ever since the film has released. I am feeling elated. I had surrendered to the character completely. My belief has turned into a reality.” further adding “Doing good work is my only agenda, success and praises will therefore follow. I want to do good work in the industry and carve a niche for myself.”
The actor is making the most of the villainous roles that are pouring forth. The Tamil film, ‘Theeran Adhigaram Ondru’ will see him playing a character with grey shades & lead antagonist . He will also star in M Rathnam’s film “Oxygen”. That’s not all, he also has a meaty role in director Anil Sharma’s ‘Genius’.
