Chennai: Tamil actor Prasanna Venkatesan, who is making his Telugu debut with the upcoming action-drama `Bhai`, says it is exciting to venture into new territory.

"I look at this as a new beginning all over again. I may be a decade old in Tamil, but this is my debut in Telugu and I`m really excited about it. I`m little nervous as well because a lot of anticipation is riding on this film," Prasanna told reporters.

"It`s a highly commercial film and I play a very different role. I have never restricted myself to any type of role and, therefore, I thoroughly enjoyed working," he added.

He shared screen space with Telugu superstar Akkineni Nagarjuna in the film, which is being directed by Veerabhadram.

"He is a wonderful co-star and is far too simple for a superstar. He doesn`t walk around with his stardom on his shoulders and is equally supportive on sets. I couldn`t have asked for a better debut in Telugu," he said.

In his decade long career, Prasanna has made a name for himself with films like `Anjathe`, `Achchamundu Achchamundu` and `Muran`.

The 30-year-old is currently awaiting the release of his Tamil films `Kalyana Samayal Saadham` and `Netru Indru`.
