A still from Riktha

“I have been trying my best to do justice to all the recognition that came with the national award and, fortunately, filmmakers have been approaching me with unique roles as well,” says the actor.

“Thankfully, I am not being typecast. I feel energised every time I get a new subject and am slipping into another character.”

Riktha, directed by Amurth Kumar, will be Sanchari’s third film, which sees him in the lead. The actor tells City Express that the film will show him in four different shades - of a child, a lover boy, a drunkard and normal self, all of which are experimental and edgy to play.

“The best part is playing a ghost,” he says, and adds with a chuckle,
“I am scared of human beings, but that is the twist in the film.” The actor calls the film a “total entertainer”.

Riktha also features Vagdevi Advika and Ramya Varshini in the cast. The film has Rocky Sonu’s music and Muralidhar’ cinematography.
