Exclusive! Atharvaa: I would love to venture into OTT space if interesting projects pop up

Atharvaa in Kuruthi Aattam

Atharvaa, whose Kuruthi Aattam released in theatres on Friday, says that the film completely belongs to director Sri Ganesh who shot to fame with 8 Thottakkal. Billed as an action thriller set against the backdrop of Madurai, the film revolves around the rift between two youngsters which results in a big gang war.

In a chat with OTTplay, the actor, who has been sporting more or less the same looks in his recent outings, says that he is ready to experiment with his appearance and that he is more than happy to be part of projects that are devoid of run-of-the-mill stories.

He says, "I would love to be part of experimental movies provided it has ample scope for me to perform. But at the same time, the commercial viability of such projects should also be taken care of. I believe that those who are investing money in films should be safe."  

Atharvaa adds that he loves to do biopics as well. "I have been reading real-life stories of late and have developed a penchant for biopics. The Hubble Space Telescope is a topic which I am currently obsessed with. It would be great if a film is made on it. But I don't know how rooted it would appear to the audience," he says.

Netflix's Navarasa, which was released a year ago, was the actor's OTT debut. Quiz him if he would love to take up more OTT projects, pat comes his reply, "Of course. Today, OTT releases are as big as theatre releases. It has evolved as a parallel platform on which we can watch movies which we chose to skip in movie halls. I would love to venture into OTT space if interesting projects pop up."

On how far he thinks he has evolved as an actor over the years, Atharvaa says, "It is a constant learning process and I think I'm growing each day. The whole acting and filmmaking process have undergone a drastic change in the last two years. Unlike earlier days, people working in each craft are well-versed in all technical aspects of a film."
