The popularity of ‘Chellam Sir’ aka Uday Mahesh, who turned from ‘The Family Man 2’ into a national search, has also reached the corridors of the Hindi glamor world. Alam Hall is just a few days away from release and has received offers for four Hindi films and a web show. Daily Bhaskar has spoken to him. Here are the key parts-
Glossy- Credit Casting Director Mukesh Chabbar. Although he had auditioned for Dipan before. After that there was no call for two months. Then he said – there’s one more role, he’d like to do since I saw the first season of the show. So, I was looking forward to joining it. I knew I only had four scenes on the show. Yet I said yes to it. We never thought this character would become so popular.
Glossy- I have no answer for this. I went somewhere else when a friend of mine sent me memes. I think the important events on which Chellalam Sir helped Srikanth Tiwari were relevant to the audience.
Glossy- In which Chellam Sir was called the new Google search, it is. He was quite funny.
Glossy- I was originally the director of Reuters. I was casting southern actors at Madras Cafe. The shooting was in Cochin. Shujit Sirkar said – do a short scene. I said – if I can do a scene with John Abraham, I will. Acting there again. In fact, even before ‘Madras Cafe’, I had advertised with Shujit Syria. We also became good friends. After ‘Madras Cafe’ I started acting in full. Before ‘The Family Man 2’, I did ‘A Sirius Man’ with Nawaz.
Glossy- I can say three or four. Talks are underway with their creators. I will share with you if signed. I didn’t even think that just three to four days of shooting and four scenes would get so much popularity. The shooting of the whole show was for 90 days.
