Adivi mesmerised by Major Unnikrishnan
Adivi Sesh stars in Major, a film on Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, who died during the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai in 2008.
The Telugu star says he was mesmerised by the Major from the moment he knew about him.
"I had seen his photograph splashed across all the channels (in 2008)," said Adivi.
"I kept wondering about this man. There was some sort of madness of spirit in his eyes and a faint smile on the lips.
"He looked like he could be one of my family members, an older cousin, and then I found out he was Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, and he had given his life for the country. I couldn't stop looking at that iconic passport photograph (right, merged with Adivi's face-cut)."
