Abhimanyu Singh's role as the antagonist who locks horns with the role played by Sridevi in Boney Kapoor's thriller 'Mom', also featuring Akshaye Khanna and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, has grabbed eyeballs.
The actor says, "Since I was acting as the baddie, my character was kept under wraps to ensure that the film's suspense didn't unravel before its release."
Talking about acting with Sridevi, he adds, "It was a dream come true to be in the same frame as Srideviji. I have grown up seeing her films and when I was offered the part, I merely had to say yes”.
Merely, I felt bad when I delivered to be menacing and trouble Srideviji in the film.
His first big shift occurred with 'Gulaal', (2009) a film which saw him essaying the lead role of Ransa Singh. He followed it up with impressive performances with his earthy characters in movies like 'Rakth Charitra' (2010) and 'Ram Leela' (2013).
The actor is making the most of the villainous characters that are streaming away.
The Tamil film, 'Theeran Adhigaram Ondru' will see him playing a character with grey shades. That's not all, he also has a meaty role in director Anil Sharma's 'Genius'.
