Panja Vaisshnav Tej: ‘Aadikeshava’ doesn’t go overboard

Panja Vaisshnav Tej

Panja Vaisshnav Tej made his debut in “Uppena,” a huge blockbuster that also received a national award for Best Telugu Film, but his succeeding two films did not do well. Now, he is preparing to release “Aadikeshava” on November 24, 2023. According to the actor, the film is a commercial entertainer that is fun to watch.


Aadikeshava’s action stunts are simple

“I chose ‘Aadikeshava’ not to become a mass hero, but to experiment with different genres. My uncle and powerstar Pawan Kalyan advised me to try different genres and stay grounded,” he explained.

Vaissnav Tej also confirms that the action in the film never goes overboard. “I’m not going to beat hundreds of goons like a big star hero. The fights are intended to be realistic. The sole cinematic sequence is the climax episode. The rest are just normal fights,” he continued.

Matching up with Sreeleela’s energy

“Aadikeshava,” helmed by newcomer N Srikanth Reddy, also marks the Telugu debut of popular Malayalam actor Joju Georg. Panja Vaisshnav Tej claims he built a strong bond with Joju and learned a lot from him.


Sreeleela, the film’s principal actress, is a fantastic dancer. Audiences first became fond of her because of her dancing skills. It is difficult for any hero to match her in dance moves, and Vaissnav Tej had to wait to do rehearsal for several days to match her energy. “She is very friendly and has motivated me to work hard. I told dance director Shekar Master to give him some time to perfect the dancing moves. He did, and I gave my best effort,” Vaisshnav remarked.

Commercial film with a crisp runtime

He remarked that “Aadikeshava” is not an over-the-top masala film. “It will keep audiences entertained for 2 hours and 10 minutes. It also has some novelty,” he added.

He also mentioned that he is now more careful about scripts.
