Popular singer Baba Sehegal, who recently made his acting debut in the Telugu period drama "Rudhramadevi", is all set to play the antagonist in the upcoming thriller "Overdose" in the same language.
"I felt Baba would be perfect for the menacing role. We have already started shooting with him and he wouldn't be seen in a typical villain role. This one will be very different and is sure to impress audiences," film's director Krishna Manneri told IANS.
Baba will also be crooning a song in the film, which features Amar, Surya Milan, Madhuri Itagi and Parinidhi in the lead roles.
"Since Baba was shooting with us, we felt why not also make him sing a song for the album. After all, singing is his forte and he has crooned several chartbusters in Telugu," added Manneri.
The director says the film reflects the lives of modern-day youth.
"The story revolves around the lifestyle of rich kids in our country and how they are getting attracted to drug abuse," he said.
"Overdose", which has music by Ramana Gogula, is gearing up for release soon.
