He is making right choices after the re-entry to Mollywood through Lal Jose directorial film named Vikramadithyan which had Dulquer Salmaan as well. Unni Mukudan had opened his mind and told about the new film Style and about his career in an exclusive interview to Onlookers Media. Here it is for you find out what Unni has in its mind..
When we see the trailer of your latest film Style, at first we gets the impression that it follows the path of stylish Tamil and Telugu films. What really Style is all about..?
Style is a simple fun filled entertainer. It is really aimed at family audience ho can watch it and enjoy in this Christmas vacation season. It is a complete package of humor, fight, dance and romance for you all.
You are now in the 5th year of your career. How you see the growth you had as an actor during these 5 years…?
In fact this is only my 4th year in Malayalam film industry. As an actor I have grew more confident as an actor and very much excited now to do variety characters that challenges me.
You have become really selective in between.. What really motivate you for that..?
It’s the quest to do different roles. If you see the films I had done in my career, you can find different films which challenges me as an actor. There are films like Orissa, KL10 Pathu, Mallu Singh, Vikramadithyan, Bombay March 12, Kattum Mazhayum, Pathira Manal etc and now Style. All are different from each other and what i learned from that is success is very much subjective.
Now, our Malayalam film industry is changing to a level in which more importance is given to story and director than stardom or star value. As a part of this industry what’s your take on this changing circumstances..?
Changes are inevitable as time flies by. As far as I am concerned, I am happily accepting this change of thought. If I have to say an example for this change, my last film KL10 Pathu is a product of that changed circumstance you mentioned above.
Style will have a tough completion with Dulquer Salmaan’s Charlie. Both of you are good friends and what is your take on the box office war between friends in this season..?
Dulquer is one of my close friends and I really pray that both films do well at box office. There is not a war between stars. It’s the films that compete with each other.
Which is your next venture..?
It is an untitled film which will be directed by a new director named Sajan. It is a romantic comedy flick and the shoot will start from 24th December this year.
Are you in love with anyone..?
(smiling) Yes.. I am in love with Cinema. Marriage will be only after 30 years old.
