Successful people are the ones who never gives up despite the struggle. This saying is apt to describe the life of Mollywood star Tovino Thomas. The Luca actor rose to fame as a young superstar in Kerala after struggling a lot in his career. But he says that if you have the determination to follow your dreams, your day will come one day.
In an interview to Mathrubhumi, the actor opened up about his upcoming movie ‘Kalki’ and future projects.
“My role in ‘Kalki’ is a different one in my career. I never played such a strong character so far. I also hoped that whenever I am playing a cop’s role, it should be a powerful one,” said Tovino.
‘Kalki’ is a mass movie. From childhood, I loved action movies about police. I think a huge number of audience love such movies. I am sure that it will be a family entertainer, he added.
In ‘Kalki’, Tovino will be seen in typical policemen look with a wide moustache and cooling glasses. The movie is an action thriller too.
“Stunt scenes have great importance in the movie. I increased my weight to 10 kg to make my character more convincible to the audience. People should feel that I can counter the villain easily,” the actor detailed his preparations for the movie.
He also practised tough exercises to make himself fit for a long time ahead of ‘Kalki’ shooting. Tovino was continuing the training sessions when he was busy with the shooting of ‘Ente Ummante Peru’, ‘And the Oscar Goes to’ and ‘Luca’. He used to find time for a workout during the shooting.
The star also followed a strict diet to have the makeover for ‘Kalki’.
“It is being rumoured that I have committed projects till 2020. I don’t know who is making such news, said the star dismissing the rumours.
He noted that he has committed a few movies after hearing the story.
“I used to hear stories for new movies. I think movies which are apt for me will automatically come in search of me. I am looking forward to do unique roles,” he added.
Tovino also expressed his satisfaction over his movies.
“I am happy that the audience accepted me and my movies. I pray that I would have such achievements in future too,” Tovino said ambitiously.
Tovino will turn producer for his upcoming movie ‘Kilometres and Kilometres’. ‘Edakkad Battalion 06’, ‘Minnal Murali’, ‘Forensic and ‘Pallichattambi’ are his upcoming projects.
