Chennai, March 22 : Actor Aadi Pudipeddi, who is awaiting the release of romantic-comedy "Pyaar Mein Padipoyane", says he agreed to work with director Ravi Chavali because he gave his father Sai Kumar a much needed makeover in 2006 Telugu film "Samanyudu".
"I believe in Ravi and agreed to work with him because I'm still in awe of the makeover he gave my dad in his film 'Samanyudu'. He had the faith in my father and portrayed him in a negative character in that film. This was one of the main reasons that I agreed to work with him," Aadi told IANS.
Sai Kumar won Nandi award as well as a Filmfare award for his role in the film.
Aadi says he's trying his hand comedy in the film.
"All my films so far had comedy in a few scenes. The scope for comedy in this film is higher. I have tried full-length comedy for the first time. I was little nervous about doing comedy, but Ravi made me believe that I could pull it off," he said.
The film, which also features Shanvi Srivastav in the lead, is slated to release around end of April.
