CHENNAI:  Actor Charandeep, who is known for his antagonist's roles in films such as "Jilla" and "Loafer", is one of the busiest actors with over half a dozen southern projects in his kitty.

"It's been a very busy yet successful year for me so far. I'm currently shooting for Vishal's 'Kathi Sandai' and Sunil's 'Eedu Gold Eh' while projects that await releases are 'Veera', 'Sharaba' 'Naanu Mattu Varalakshmi', 'Antham' and 'Motta Shiva Ketta Shiva'," Charandeep, who turned 29 on Monday, told IANS.

Among these projects, Charandeep is most excited about Veeru Potla-directed "Eedu Gold Eh" and "Sharaba".

"In 'Eedu Gold Eh', I play a villain with an emotional side and I'm closely attached to my father. I liked how director Potla didn't make it just another villain. It's a very interesting character and I'm stoked about it," he said, adding that he plays a character along the lines of Sonu Sood from "Arundhati" in "Sharaba".

"'Sharaba' is a socio-fantasy film. My role required me to undergo a complete makeover. On the sets, the make-up part only took me nearly three hours each day. It's easily one of the most challenging roles of my career. There's still about five days of shooting left," he said.

For a change, he will be seen in a positive role in Telugu thriller "Antham", which is gearing up for release soon.

"I'm excited and equally nervous about this film. I'm not sure how audiences will accept me in a positive role," said Charandeep, who is paired with actress Rashmi Gautam in the film.

In Vishal's Tamil actioner "Kathi Sandai", he's the brother of actor Tarun Arora, who plays the main baddie.

He plays a racer in Kannada thriller "Naanu Mattu Varalakshmi", which is tipped to be India's first motocross film.
