Actor-writer Adivi Sesh, who was last seen on screen in Evaru (2019), the Telugu adaptation of the Spanish thriller, The Invisible Guest, is keeping himself busy scripting the upcoming Telugu spy thriller, Goodachari 2, in this lockdown.

In an interview to the Deccan Chronicle newspaper, Sesh spoke about how he is using his time wisely in this lockdown. "I am writing the script for Goodachari 2 and editing my other film Major (2020). Just before the lockdown, we had completed a big part of Major at the border. This was the coolest and toughest shoot in my career and it’s been an incredible experience,” he said.

Major, which is being directed by Sashi Kiran Tikka, marks the reunion of Sesh and Sobhita Dhulipala. The film is being simultaneously shot in Telugu and Hindi. The film, which will see Sesh step into the shoes of Major Unnikrishnan, who rescued hostages during the 26/11 terror attack on the Taj Hotel in Mumbai and perished in his mission. The film is being produced by Mahesh Babu and Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Goodachari 2, on the other hand, will be the sequel to Sesh’s 2018 sleeper-hit Goodachari, which saw the actor play a spy. The movie was very well received. 

Talking about Goodachari, Sesh had said during a media interaction: “I’ve been a fan of the spy films for a long time. I wrote the story of Goodachari as a teenager and I wanted to tell the story of a spy on the streets of India. Instead of aiming to make a Bond film, we’ve Indianised the spy genre, and we believe we’ve made a fairly interesting spy thriller.”

Sesh has also revealed he will direct Goodachari 2, which will go on the floors later this year. It will hit the screens next year.
