I owe my career to `Andala Rakshasi`: Naveen Chandra

Chennai: Actor Naveen Chandra, who is currently awaiting the release of Tamil thriller `Sarabam`, says he would like to owe his career to his Telugu debut `Andala Rakshasi`. He says it was after seeing his performance in the film that he has been offered most of his projects so far.

"The `Sarabam` director approached me with the role after seeing my performance in `Andala Rakshasi`, which has helped me get several offers so far in my career. I have to owe my career to that film because everything has changed for good in my life since then," Naveen told reporters.

In the Arun Mohan-directed "Sarabam", Naveen plays an architect. The film also features debutant Salony Luthra in the lead.

"Contrary to my rural characters so far in my career, I`m playing a sophisticated urban role in this film. The director has tried to portray me as stylishly as possible and I think that will be a welcome change for people who`ve seen so far in my films," he added.

"Sarabam" is produced by C.V. Kumar and it is gearing up for release soon.
