Manoj Nandam was a popular child artist who played Mahesh Babu’s younger version in ‘Athadu’ and Prabhas’ younger version in ‘Chatrapathi’. As a male lead, he impressed the audience in ‘Oka Romantic Crime Katha’. For the first time, this talented actor is playing a negative role. That’s in ‘Operation Gold Fish’, in which director Saikiran Adivi is also introducing writer Abburi Ravi as an antagonist.
Manoj’s First Look in the movie has been unveiled by Vijay Deverakonda.
Vijay Deverakonda says, “I am happy that I have released Manoj’s Farooq Iqbal Iraqi’s look. I have watched him ever since the days of ‘Athadu’. I had done an audition for ‘Kerintha’ movie with Saikiran Adivi garu. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance in that movie. I have always watched his movies. We all come from Sekhar Kammula garu’s team. Coming to ‘OGF’, I have loved Abburi Ravi garu’s look as well. I wish Aadi Saikumar, Airtel 4G girl Sasha and others all the best. I wish that ‘OGF’ becomes a huge hit.”
Saikiran Adivi said, “I thank Vijay Deverakonda for releasing the FL despite him being busy with his work. He spared time for us. I couldn’t cast him in ‘Kerintha’. Despite that, he has come today to help me. I thank him once again.”
Manoj Nandam said, “My wish is that I am endeared to the youth audience with this First Look. I am playing the role of a young terrorist in the movie. I apologize for having played an anti-India character. As an actor, I see every character equally. We went to Vijay Deverakonda anna’s film set to request him to unveil this look. Since I am playing a bad guy’s role in the movie, we felt the ‘Rowdy’ star alone should release it. I hope the audience will accept me in the villain’s role. When I had my doubts as to whether I can pull off such a role, the director trusted me. I thank him for that.”
