After a series of box office disasters, the spotlight now seems to be back on Sri Murali, whose upcoming film is getting rave reviews. Ugramm’s teaser, which shows the actor’s perfectly toned body, has indeed created a positive buzz and the actor, who has given his best in his comeback film, is hoping for a hit. “I don’t want to be one of those actors who talk too much before the release of their movies. I just want to stay calm and reach out to my fans,” he says.

The actor says Ugramm has helped him bring out his potential. “This is my 18th film and I feel different about this one. It is a visual treat,” he says.

Murali says he dons a completely new avatar in the film. “I should be thankful to the crew because I never thought I could look so handsome on the screen. I am in love with myself after seeing the presentation. Director Prashanth has put his heart in the film and he has given me a fabulous look, my wife did the costumes. If somebody understands me as much as my wife does, it is Prashanth.”

Ask him about coping with disappointments and he says, “I have a vision and I am sticking to it. It will definitely help me stay on the right track. No matter what goes wrong in my life, there is a voice in my head that says, ‘There is a better day coming up for you’.”

Murali is confident that the film will give him a new lease of life in Sandalwood. He says, “It will be a gift to the industry. We have had some quality films of late and Ugramm belongs to that category. The viewers have accepted the trailer but they need to come back and watch the film. Irrespective of good or bad movies, the audience has always stayed with me. I hope with Ugramm I give something back to them,” he says.
