After working in three back-to-back commercial entertainers, actor Manchu Vishnu, who will soon be seen in Ram Gopal Varma-directed Telugu action-drama "Rowdy", says the film has changed him as an actor.
"It's probably for the first time that I have done a film without comedy. I feel that as an actor, I have changed a lot with 'Rowdy'. It's a commercial film with a strong dose of tear-jerking moments. Ramu has extracted the best out of me in the particular role I'm playing," Vishnu told IANS.
"Post 'Rowdy', I'll ensure that I pick up roles that are contrary to each other. I have also learnt a lot as an actor from RGV and I hope to incorporate it in my life going forward," he added.
"Rowdy" is a faction-ridden story set against the backdrop of Rayalaseema. It also features Manchu Mohan Babu, Jayasudha, Shanvi Srivastav, Kishore and Ravi Babu in important roles.
The film is slated to release Friday.
