With his portrayal in the highly awaited film 'Major,' Adivi Sesh has been capturing hearts throughout the country. The film follows the amazing story of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan and his bravery and sacrifice during the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.
The actor, who has been travelling the country for special screenings of the film, has gotten standing ovations for his delicate and moving portrayal in the film, which pays tribute to one of the country's greatest heroes.
The National Security Guard in Mumbai recently saw 'Major,' which was attended by 312 commandos and their families. This screening was particularly memorable for Adivi, who was honoured with an honorary medal for his outstanding performance in the film by the Black Cat Commandos.
"We showed the film to the National Security Guard in Mumbai where 312 commandos and their families watched the film. When the film ended there was complete silence, they asked me to come to their headquarters and when I got there, they gave me this medal on behalf of the Black Cat Commandos. This to me is bigger than any Oscar. So I believe we have a winner with Major."
The bilingual film, which will be released in theatres on June 3, was shot in Hindi and Telugu and will also be released in Malayalam.
