The popularity of ‘Chellam Sir’ aka Uday Mahesh, who became a national search from ‘The Family Man 2’, has also reached the corridors of Hindi glamor world. Alam is that it has been only a few days since the release of the show and he has got offers from four Hindi films and web shows. Dainik Bhaskar has spoken to him. Here are the key parts-

  • How did the role of Chellam sir come about?

Shine- Credit goes to casting director Mukesh Chhabra. Although he had taken my audition for Deepan earlier. Then two months no call came. Then he said – there is another role, he would like to do. Since I watched the first season of the show. So, I was looking forward to joining it. I knew I only had four scenes in the show. Still I said yes to it. We never thought this character would become so popular.

  • Why do you think it has become so popular?

Shine- I don’t even have an answer for this. I had gone somewhere else when a friend of mine sent me memes made on me. I think the important occasions on which Chellam sir helped Srikant Tiwari, those things were relatable to the audience.

  • Which is your favorite meme?

Shine- The one in which Chellam sir came to be called the new Google search, that one. He was quite funny.

  • Eight years ago you did ‘Madras Cafe’. Why didn’t you do more Hindi films after that?

Shine- I was originally a Reuters director. I was casting actors from South in ‘Madras Cafe’. At that time the shoot was in Cochin. Shoojit Sircar said – will do a small scene. I said – if I get to do a scene with John Abraham, I will do it. Acting there again. In fact, even before ‘Madras Cafe’, I did commercials with Shoojit Sircar. We also became good friends. After ‘Madras Cafe’, I ventured into full-fledged acting. Before ‘The Family Man 2’, I did ‘A Serious Man’ with Nawaz.

  • How many offers have you got now since ‘The Family Man 2’?

Shine- I can say three or four. Talks are going on with their makers. I will share with you guys when signed. I didn’t even think that just three to four days of shoot and four scenes would get so much popularity. The entire show was shot for 90 days.
