Actors rarely get to play life-altering roles in their career, and for Adivi Sesh, 'Major' was one such film.
On its first anniversary on June 3, Sesh has shared how it changed his life. 'Major' depicted the real-life story of the braveheart, NSG officer Sandeep Unnikrishnan, and the tragic events of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks.
The biopic forged a very special bond with Sesh, who is keeping this legacy alive by remaining close to the Unnikrishnan family -- retired ISRO scientist K. Unnikrishnan and his wife Dhanalakshmi.
On the film's first anniversary, Sesh spent the day with Unnikrishnan's family in Bangalore and penned a heartfelt note about the day as well as the film along with some sweet pictures.
Sesh took to social media and wrote, "Got my darshan with Amma and Uncle for the 1 year Anniversary of #Major. Amma cooked some amazing food despite her shoulder pain. Their love has meant everything to me. #MajorSandeepUnnikrishnan has blessed me and changed me in ways I never knew.
#MajorTheFilm is my most memorable film and I want to thank Mahesh sir, our amazing producers, our phenomenal director, the hardworking team, our Actors who gave riveting performances but most of all…the audience. The love and respect you have given us is immense. I am indebted from the bottom of my heart. This honour is forever. #JaiHind."
'Major' also starred Sobhita Dhulipala, Saiee Manjrekar, Revathi, Prakash Raj, Murali Sharma and Anish Kuruvilla in pivotal roles.
Directed by Sasi Kiran Tikka, Sesh had penned the screenplay of the movie himself. The film was a joint production between G. Mahesh Babu Entertainment and Sony Pictures International Productions.
On the work front, Sesh will be seen next in 'G2', the second film of the 'Goodachari' franchise. The shooting for the pan-India film, which is being put together by the makers of 'The Kashmir Files', 'Karthikeya 2' and 'Major'. will commence soon.
