Actor Chiranjeevi recently took to Twitter to praise Adivi Sesh’s ‘Major’. Describing it as an “emotion”, he spent time with the film’s cast and the team behind it and hosted them for lunch. Overwhelmed by Chiranjeevi’s gesture, Adivi called it an honour to be recognised by a star of his stature. Chiranjeevi lauded actor Mahesh Babu, who co-produced the movie, for backing such a purposeful film.
He tweeted, “#Major is not a film. It’s truly an Emotion. Story of a great Hero & Martyr #MajorSandeepUnnikrishnan told in the most poignant way. A must-watch. Proud of @urstrulyMahesh for backing such a purposeful film. Hearty Congrats to @AdiviSesh @saieemmanjrekar #Sobhita @SashiTikka & Team (sic).”
Replying to Chiranjeevi, Sesh wrote, “Today feels like my highest honour Sir! @KChiruTweets You spoke to us for hours. Fed us an amazing lunch. And explained what you loved about the film. Such attention to detail, such insightful questions. I always loved #Megastar the hero. Today, I witnessed your heart of gold (sic).”
‘Major’ follows the story of the late Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, who died fighting terrorists in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks. Besides playing the lead role, Adivi also has written the film and called it his pet project. Filmed simultaneously in Telugu and Hindi languages, has reportedly grossed over £4.25 million in cinemas worldwide. The film also stars Sobhita Dhulipala, Saiee Manjrekar and Murali Sharma.
