In a recent media interview, Dino Morea spoke about his upcoming Telugu spy thriller film titled Agent.
Talking about his penchant for action sequences, Morea 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."
Shedding light on his look and character in the film, he added: "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."
When asked if he enjoys playing characters with grey shades, he shared: "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."
The actor is best known for films like Raaz (2002) and web series such as Hostages and Tandav, he will play the antagonist in Agent. While Morea has been a part of South films like the Tamil film Kandukondain Kandukondain (2000) and Kannada film Julie (2006), directed by Surender Reddy, Agent will mark his debut in Telugu cinema.
