Tollywood star Ravi Teja who has battled it out with traditional antagonists in his previous films will be seen taking on a new dangerous antagonist in his upcoming film, Raja The Great, the trailer of which was released today. The film will mark the Tollywood debut of actor Vivan Bhatena, who recently took on two Varun Dhawans in David Dhawan’s superhit film, Judwaa 2. Vivan who is all excited about his south debut revealed the intricate details of his character, “It is a very interesting character of a person who is affected with a bipolar disorder, who exhibits totally diverse shades of his personality on different occasions. He shares a wonderful relationship with his father but his character acquires an amazing twist on the other side. He switches in seconds. It is psychotic and weird. I have never seen a similar character in any other film,” he said, adding that he had a great experience shooting with Ravi Teja, “He is spontaneous and a very very talented actor. It was a pleasure working with him,” Vivan smiled.

The Khatron Ki Khiladi actor added that the film was being eagerly looked forward also because of the fact that it was produced by an established producer like Dil Raju, “He is a reckoned name in Tollywood and is revered as the Yashraj of Tollywood. His last film, DJ Duvvvada Jagannadham completely swept the box-office this year. The banner has had some big releases this year,” Vivan revealed.

It was a pleasure working with Ravi Teja. He is spontaneous and a very very talented actor.

The actor, who is very geared up about action, is delighted about the tremendous response to Judwaa 2, “I knew that the film would get an overwhelming response from day one. It was reminiscent of David Dhawan’s brand of comedy.” He also recalled the long bicycle chase that forms part of the climax, “I performed the action scenes without a double. The bicycle chase was a challenge but the stunt directors in London were very generous and helped me out,” he said.
