Music composer turned actor GV Prakash impressed the audiences with his performance in the recently released Naachiyaar and won many hearts. Directed by Bala, GV Prakash played the role of a lower middle-class boy in Naachiyaar and was seen alongside veteran actor Jyothika in an important role. In an interview to a leading tabloid, GV Prakash says that he was apprehensive initially when he was approached by director Bala’s office. “I got a call from Bala sir’s office and I expected it to be about composing music. He then told me that he wanted me to act in the film. I was hesitant initially as I had already signed multiple projects. So I asked him for two months’ time before we began the project. Bala sir also wrapped up the schedule in 40 days. My only fear was the commitment I had done and I also had to change my look for the film,” GV Prakash told Hindustan Times.
When the teaser of Naachiyaar was released, GV Prakash was appreciated on Twitter by Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and the two had a conversation around it. Speaking about it, GV said, “He told me that he will launch me in Hindi. So, let’s see,” said GV who has already done a film in Bollywood – Gangs of Wasseypur – where he composed the background score.
Speaking about the pressure a star-kid tag brings, GV says, “When I entered the industry as a composer, the standpoint was that a star kid should not be encouraged. I proved them wrong. It does take time, but I outsmarted them and gave Veyil.”
Speaking about Sarvam Thaalamayam, to be directed by Rajiv Menon and music by A.R.Rahman, GV heaps praised on Rajiv. “After K Vishwanath, I feel Rajiv Menon does the best musicals. Even though I am not the composer on this project, I have learnt a lot – especially about percussion.”
