We have caught up with an interview with handsome hero Naveen Chandra. Take a sneak peak of what he had to share:
Q: About your child hood and education in brief?
A: I am an Engineering graduate specialized in Mechanical department and started off my life being a 2D animator. I was passionate towards movie ever since I was a child. I had planned to enter into the industry and for that, I used to do odd jobs to save some money. And when I felt it was ok to give it a try now, I left the job and started off in search of destiny in the movies in the year 2006.
Q: How did you hit a chance in the movies?
A: After bidding a bye to the jobs, I made a portfolio and started trials into the film industry. The portfolio had many videos and photos. I used to take them and revolve around the studios and offices. A light boy who works at Annapurna studios asked me to give my portfolio so that he could refer it to some person who is in charge of casting. I did give him but with no belief that I could be referred.
At last, I got a call from Chennai in the year 2008 and that is how I got my first offer and that too with the help of that light boy whom I never expected to do such a greatest thing for me.
Q: How did you get into Andalarakshasi?
A: After one or two movies, I grew my beard and started my search in Telugu industry. Hanu Raghavapudi, who was looking for a worn-out look for the movie went through my portfolio which was shown to him by writer Lakshmi Bhopal. That is how I got into the movie. And you know what happened next.
Q: About Tripura?
A: Tripura is going to be a very good entertainer and I am sure the entire team has given its best. So, results also will be good. It was Hanu who recommended me for Tripura.
Q: What is that you want to improve in the context of movies?
A: I think I was wrong in selection of scripts initially. I always focused on my role in the movies rather that focusing on the appeal that the role gives. But, I am sure I will not be doing the same thing as I have come to know what is what. LOL and Tripura are gonna give me a very good break.
Q: About your role in Tripura?
A: I have played the role of a psychiatrist. There are contrast shades in the role I have played. I play both a lover and a cheater in this movie.
Q: Upcoming projects?
A: Let the movies Tripura and LOL get released first. I will let you know about the projects that I am going to sign. One or two stories are under discussion.
That is what Naveen Chandra had to share with us. Stay tuned for more updates from the team Tripura!
