Actor Shravan Reddy, who was last seen in Krishnadasi, had a nude photo of him going viral on the Internet. It was reportedly for a short film inspired by the Bhagavad Gita. Here’s what he told Pinkvilla.
It’s for a short film basically targeting film festivals. It’s a film which falls in 20 minutes bracket. The storyline is inspired from Bhagavad Gita, more on the Karma line, that’s why the title itself is Karma.
He also added that the scene was important for the film.
I was said that I might have to go without clothes for a scene. I wasn’t comfortable being honest but the requirement was such and the narrative structure the director chose. I wasn’t comfortable but it was important for the narrative which was given to me.
Shravan was further quizzed about the reactions of the fans and people around him. To which he replied, “When I did the scene I didn’t really think much about who would react on it. I was only bothered about was it really needed? So, when I got a justification and I also felt satisfied with the director’s explanation, then I decided to go with it and didn’t think too much beyond this. I was too clear that this shouldn’t be just the sake of a film because a lot of time we do in entertainment this becomes sometimes a selling point. I wanted to be sure that there is a genuine need for this for the character to do so.”
He talked about the storyline of the film saying, “It is about a relationship between a father and a son majorly. It’s even a silent movie and does not have any dialogues in it and ends with a song.”
