Telugu actor Sunil Varma, who shares screen space with Naga Chaitanya in upcoming action-drama "Thadaka", feels that the latter is one of the fast evolving mass heroes in the industry.

"I played his (Chaitanya) friend in his debut film 'Josh' and play his co-star in 'Thadaka'. The transformation I see in him now is unbelievable because he played a lover boy then, and now plays a completely mass-appealing character. It's not easy to evolve as a mass hero in such a short period of time," Sunil told IANS.

"I'm sure audiences are going to love the biggest highlight of the film - the fights featuring him. Sooner or later, he will be known as one of the best mass heroes in the industry," he added.

Directed by Kishore Kumar Pardasani, "Thadaka" is the Telugu remake of Tamil blockbuster "Vettai". It also features Tammannah Bhatia and Andrea Jeremiah in key roles.

Sunil and Chaitanya will feature in roles originally played by R. Madhavan and Arya respectively. The remake will feature Ashutosh Rana, who played the baddie in the original.

"It's an out and out commercial entertainer with appropriate dose of humour and romance. I believe Chaitu and I hit it off quite well working together," said Sunil, who started his career as a comedian and went to play lead roles.

Sunil says he will never forget his roots.

"I know where I have come from and I will always remember that. Audiences accepted me as a comedian first and then as a hero and, therefore, I will entertain them as much as possible. Even in this film, I have good amount of comedy and action to perform," he added.

Sunil played lead roles in "Maryada Ramanna", "Poola Rangadu" and "Mr. Pellikoduku". While the first two films were highly successful, his third film failed to elicit a similar response.

"Thadaka" also features Nagendra Babu, Brahmanandam, Vennela Kishore, Raghu Babu, Rama Prabha, Jaya Prakash Reddy and Srinivasa Reddy. Slated to release in May, it is produced by Bellamkonda Ganesh.
