Hyderabad: Naga Shaurya may turn vegetarian sooner or later. He says he’s fed up of having a vegetable-based diet every day for the past two years where his platter is filled with “broccoli, veggies and food that looks green”. “I am fed up of having grilled chicken too! It’s been a long time since I had that juicy, mouth-watering chicken, it’s very tantalising if I imagine. I may soon turn vegetarian,” he says.

The actor admits that it has become a challenge for him to lose weight while prepping for his romantic period drama ‘Lakshya’, in which he is shown as an archer. “I had to lose weight for the character Akash in ‘Vardu Kavalenu’ because it demanded a typical look of a groom. Akash is a well-cultured person from a very conservative family. So, I’ve to tuck my shirt in for every sequence that features me. Even while going to bed, I am thinking ‘how can I lose that extra fat’,” he says.

Just 5 blockbusters

The ‘Ashwathama’ actor is inclined towards taking a shot at movies that are more story-driven. “Yes, I want to come out of the commercial cinema ambit. I am not an actor who would stick to the routine way of churning out movies. Every actor has more flops than hits, it’s an undeniable fact. And to become a star, an actor needs just five blocusters. ‘Chalo’ was one and now ‘Varudu Kaavalenu’ and hopefully there are more on the way,’ he admits.

Shaurya is all pumped up and rejuvenated to see his film ‘Varudu Kaavalenu’ getting released in theatres this Friday. He is seen as a decent, easy-going person with boy-next-door looks, Akash, who falls for a girl named Bhumi. “It’s a mature love story, and looks a bit conventional. It’s about how men understand women. It’s sure to impress fans,” he adds.

Marriage is unpredictable

Shaurya says the on-screen character Akash matches his personality in real life. However, the actor is tight-lipped about his marriage. “It could happen soon, we can’t predict. I don’t have any reservations against marriage. My parents aren’t bothered too! It’s all about understanding the partner while balancing the professions that we’re in,” he says.

The actor says he is not ready to see himself on OTT yet. Although offers have been coming, “I feel I’ve time to experiment on a digital platform”. Shaurya has ‘Lakshya’ coming up in November. Shooting of another movie under IRA Creations is currently under way. Directed by Anish Krishna, the movie has finished 90 per cent of the shoot.

The actor is all excited about the upcoming movie ‘Phalana Abbai Phalana Ammai’ that is being directed by Avasarala Srinivas. “It started in 2018. I am longing to finish it. It’s a youth entertainer, pure fun, and appeals to US audiences particularly. I can say it would be another milestone in my career. I have seven different shades in it,” he adds.
