Shaam who is known for his handsome young lover image, has decided to change his route to action direction. The actor who’s receiving rave reviews for his role as a tough cop in Thillalangadi, a remake of the Telugu blockbuster Kick, is enjoying every bit of the attention that his new image has fetched him. Shaam had already played the same role in original Telugu version too.
So, what made him take the action route? “Tamil people want their heroes to be tough. And since I have already played chocolate boy roles, I did not want to get stuck with that particular image. I thought it would be a good idea to attempt another genre and prove that I am a versatile actor too.”
“When people saw the tough guy in Thillalangadi, they instantly asked ‘where was this Shaam all these days? So, from now, I want to focus more on action. But that doesn’t mean I won’t take up romantic roles. If an interesting script like that of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa comes up, why not?”
