Chennai, Sep 19 (IANS) Shaam Ibrahim's much delayed Tamil thriller "6 Candles" will hit the screens Friday, and the actor says that he did the film to satisfy the actor in him and not for anybody else. He says he evolved as an actor in the process.
"I'm eleven years old in the industry, and all these years I have done films mostly to satisfy my fans, while in the initial years, I did any film that came my way. But, I did '6 Candles' for myself because I thought it was time I did something for myself, to satisfy the actor in me," Shaam told IANS.
"I felt I evolved as an actor through this film. We spent more than two years on it, but it was worth it. Audiences have to watch it and give us their verdict. We have worked extremely hard and I hope it pays off," he added.
"6 Candles" revolves around the search of a father for his missing son and is directed by V.Z Dhorai. It also features Puunam Kaur, Anil Murali and Narayan.
Shaam worked extremely hard for the film. He sports two different looks for which he shed lot of weight.
"I beefed up for some part of the film, while for the other part I lost more than 15 kg. It wasn't easy to gain weight and lose it within a short period of time. I did it because I wanted to give my best to this film," he said.
Currently, Shaam is busy shooting for Telugu action-drama "Race Gurram".
