Although the movie was originally slated to release on OTT platform with the title ‘Peanut Diamond’, the makers released it in theatres recently, after being suggested by the industry. “It’s a very novel concept. The story revolves around synthetic diamond making and it has elements of comedy, thriller and crime. We named it ‘Ram Asur’ to bring the movie to masses rather restricting it to OTT,” says Abhinav.

Elaborating further, he says, “Bheems Ceciroleo’s music and background score and Prabhakar’s camera work are the major highlights of it. I played the role of Suri in the film. I’m happy that audiences who watched the film starting calling me ‘Telugu cinema Yash’, which is a great feeling.”

Abhinav also owns a celebrity cricket team named Hyderabad Talwars. “To float a celebrity cricket team, that objective to spread awareness on various social campaigns and raise charity by organising tournaments. Before Covid-19, we held a match at LB Stadium on Swachh Hyderabad campaign. Later, we held matches with Telugu celebs in South Africa to help cancer patients and raised cancer funds.

Hailing from an agriculture family from Achampet in Telangana, Abhinav worked for about 10 years with MNCs like Coca Cola and Kingfisher as a brand manager before successfully implementing his entrepreneurial idea of setting up chain of tea stores ‘Hyderabadi Chai Adda’ in 2015.

“The idea was to bring the concept of tea at the corporate level. Minister KT Rama Rao launched my fist store in T Hub and another great honour was when Ratan Tata was my first customer. I’ve seven stores in the city, and have started franchising as I plan to expand them further to 500 stores in the next one year. The idea to launch Chai Adda was to provide employment to students,” says Abhinav, alumni of NIT Warangal.

Tryst with acting happened to Abhinav during his schooling in Korukonda Sainik School. “I was attracted to dramatics and theatre when I was a boy. Later, during my corporate stint as a brand manager, I came into contact with film industry people when we organised events. It was during this time that I got to play a small role in Venkatesh-starrer ‘Tulasi’. Later, we sponsored films like ‘Athidi’ and ‘Munna’. That’s when I was attracted to films and acting,” he adds.

Abhinav has an upcoming film titled ‘Mistake’, in which he is playing an antagonist. The film is being produced under his banner ASP Media house. A fitness enthusiast, a basketball player at the national level and cross-country runner, Abhinav also conducts blood donation camps every year on his birthday.
