With Telugu soap operas attracting audience all across the world, the industry is thriving hard to produce great content. Arun Reddy, popularly known as VJ Sunny started off his journey as a lifestyle journalist and landed a lead role in a soap opera, Kalyana Vaibhogame, he went above and beyond the call of duty with his work over time.
For the young actor, nothing seems challenging, from being part of a dance show to working as a journalist, everything attracted him towards the glitz and glamour of the TV industry. It takes significant individuality to stand out among the glut of Indian television actors and Arun Reddy knows how to do that in more ways than one.
“It was my dream to be cast as a lead actor and it got me closer to my destiny. Somebody once told me to take up acting, and ever since then, there’s no turning back,” says Arun.Speaking about his acting experience, he says, “Everyone has a unique way of acting, it is really important to react well to a shot, I personally believe in self-practice, acting in front of the mirror really works for me.”
Arun has actively participated in theatre and that’s where he learnt the basics of acting. Apart from acting, he also enjoys exploring news forms of art. He was part of a reality dance show Dance Jodi Dance. When asked about his interests, he says, “Racing is my passion and has been a huge part of my life. I have represented the State in competitions which took me to the Honda Race Track in Chennai. However, Hyderabad has very little to offer when it comes to racing tracks. I make time to travel whenever I can, it rejuvenates me as it takes me closer to nature,” adds Arun.
About his future plans, he says, “My ultimate desire is to get into movies. And, I am already working on it. I had received a lot of offers to act in soap operas for Hindi audience, but leaving my family here and going elsewhere is something that I can’t do.” When he is not busy working, he likes to cook for himself. It’s a skill he picked up out of necessity. He gives all the credit to his brother who introduced him to cooking.
