Satyadev to dish out quirky humour this time

Published: 30th Nov 2021 3:24 pm

Hyderabad: Actor Satyadev Kancharana is all pumped up playing Dr Anand, the character he calls, “a humorous, fun-filled and quirky-author-backed role”, in the upcoming comedy fantasy flick ‘Skylab’. The actor admits that although he would love to play comedy characters, he happened to accept intense roles thinking that he is not cut out to play comic roles.

“But however, I thoroughly love playing Dr Anand, a humorous character who talks about the business of demand and supply amidst the chaos of possible threat from space station Skylab. It’s a drama surrounding a far-flung remote village named Banda Lingampally,” shares Satyadev. 

“The way people are gripped by Covid-19 now, there were times when people feared talking about Skylab in the early ’70s. Imagine if it fell, the entire area would have been wiped out. Stories of people swallowing gold coins out of fear circulated then. During the same time, life insurance policies sky-rocketed,” he adds. 

‘Skylab’ is a humorous take on the pandemonium prevailing in the village. “Our generation knew what had happened during that time. So, while showcasing the Seventies’ era, it should ideally be in a desaturated tone. But we wanted to show it as a celebration and that’s when the handy work of cinematographer Aditya Javvadi did us good. We amped up the colour palette to show the drama as a celebration,” he says. 

Luckily, Satyadev was able to pull off dialogues in Telangana slang. “To depict the times back then, I had to rehearse the Telangana dialect well. Since I already know the slang in this part of the land, it wasn’t difficult to play Dr Anand. I didn’t struggle to pull off the funny sequences either because Anand’s role itself is funny. And the other character, Subedar Ramarao played by Rahul Ramakrishna, too, was funny. We didn’t have to stress out much. We performed with the sync sound shooting live on the locations; that way, we could avoid dubbing. The best thing about sync sound is that the actor’s performance gets enhanced,” says Satyadev. 

The ‘Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya’ actor is currently enjoying his space with a slew of projects lined up. Stating that he likes to dish out something new every time he signs up a movie, he says he still feels worried about audiences’ expectations at the box office. The next film ‘Gurthunda Seethakalam’, a love story that I’ve never done before, I’ve three different looks in the movie. I like challenges on the silver screen. ‘Godse’ is again a political thriller that takes on the education system. Playing a role in the upcoming Akshay Kumar’s film is again a different one,” he adds.
