The introduction of OTT platforms has proven to be beneficial for Dino Morea. In recent years, the actor had the opportunity to display a new side of himself in well-known series like Hostages season 2, Tandav, and The Empire. He will now carry on with the action genre by taking on the role of the adversary in Agent, his debut Telugu film.
Dino claimed that due to his reputation, he was never given the chance to display his vicious side in the beginning of his career. In the beginning of his career, he said, “In the earlier phase of my career, filmmakers only perceived me as this sweet, good-looking boy next door. I was offered to play a romantic hero, but never got an opportunity to do an all-out action film. I have a knack for action as I am fit and flexible, but no one has ever tapped that part of my personality. In Agent, I will get to do some raw brutal action and I’m excited about that.”
Mammootty, Akhil Akkineni, and Sakshi Vaidya are the stars of the Surender Reddy-directed film Agent. It's interesting to note that God is the name of Dino's character in the film.
Dino described his character in further detail, saying, “I play an agent who’s gone rogue. He’s quite a crazy guy, and an anti-hero. I am flaunting long hair and a beard. It has been nearly three years since I have seen my face without any facial hair. I grew my hair and beard for The Empire and haven’t cut it since then.”
The actor acknowledged that he enjoys playing evil characters. “There’s a certain madness you can bring to a negative character and the audience loves watching that. Even as a kid, when I watched James Bond movies, I remembered the villains more than the protagonist. Look at The Dark Knight, the character of the Joker is unforgettable in that film,” he remarked. Agent is set to be released this year.
