The video message is released to commemorate the 12th death anniversary of Unnikrishnan. In the video, Adivi said he was in San Francisco when he first sawUnnikrishnan on news channels. "He [Unnikrishnan] impacted my life from the first moment I knew about him. It was in 2008, I remembered seeing his photographs splashed across all the channels. It was momentous. I didn't know what to make of it," Adivi said. He further said that there was some sort of madness in the Major's eyes and a small smile on his face. Adivi said that the Major looked like one of his family members or an older cousin. Adivi added that he wanted to learn more about Unnikrishnan and therefore, he started researching on him. The actor said he used to collect all the newspaper clippings which were published on the Major's birth and death anniversary. He gradually became confident that he could pull off a film on the life of Unnikrishnan. Adivi also approached the parents of the Major who was awarded the Ashok Chakra posthumously. He said the father of the major was in complete disbelief when he got to know that Adivi will be making a film on his son's life. Adivi went to Bengaluru and spent time with the parents of the Major and learn more about his life. Sharing the look test on Twitter, Adivi said that the highest compliment was when Unnikrishnan's mother told him that he looks like her son from afar. Check it out here

The film is directed by Sashi Kiran Tikka. Apart from Adivi Sesh, it will also feature Sobhita Dhulipala and Saiee Manjrekar in pivotal roles.

Major will be a bilingual Hindi and Telugu film that is produced by Sony Pictures Films India in association with Mahesh Babu's GMB Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. and A+S Movies.

The first look of Major will be released on 17 December.

Mads Matthiesen’s Sundance winner Teddy Bear, now on MUBI, is a gently told male-emancipation story

Teddy Bear turns the “emancipation movie” on its head. Most times, the person who needs emancipating is a woman. It’s interesting to see this most masculine-looking of men needing to “find himself”, too.
