Actor Tarun Chatriya has said that the toughest part of his acting assignment is ‘singing duet with the heroine’. While most heroes seem to relish this particular part in a film, Tarun Chatriya appears to have other ideas. Tarun Chatriya is debuting as hero with a film titled Padam Parthu Kadhai Sol opposite newcomer Shika.
Tarun Chatriya, one of the young and upcoming actors in Kollywood, is not new to films. He played the villain’s role to perfection opposite Simbu in the Tarun Gopi directed Kaalai more than 3 years back. Hailing from Ambur (known for biryani) in Vellore District, Tarun Chatriya started his career in the nearby Bangalore as his father was a notable producer in Sandalwood, the world of Kannada films.
Tarun Gopi, who gave him a big break in Kollywood, changed Suleel Kumar into Tarun Chatriya and made him Simbu’s villain in Kaalai. Tarun Chatriya followed it up with another significant role in Kungumapoovum Konjupuravum. He also played villain in films like Aanmai Thavarel, Sundar C’s Nagaram and stunt choreographer Vijay’s directorial venture Markandeyan which had the latter’s son Sabareesh debuting as the hero.
He appears determined to make the most of his first opportunity to play the lead role in Padam Parthu Kadhai Sol. Sandalwood’s Shika plays his heroine in the film. Tarun Chatriya, who appeared visibly uncomfortable during the filming of romantic sequences and duet songs, was ‘comforted’ by Shika’s timely advice who asked him to ease up mentally and take it easy. However, Tarun Chatriya says that he finds taxing stunt sequences easier than romantic sequences.
He also has four more films on hand. Way to go, Tarun Chatriya!
