Interview: Koratala Shiva- NTR’s role will be the biggest highlight

Janatha Garage is one film which is being awaited all over. On the eve of the film’s release, we caught up with the director Koratala Shiva for a detailed interview. Here is the transcript.

Q)What is Janatha Garage all about ?

What happens when a man who is extremely nature loving meets a completely contrasting personality like Mohan Lal who has a different motto in life.

Q)What made you choose Mohan Lal ?

For Mohan Lal’s character, I always wanted a new face to Telugu films. At the same time, the actor should be quite senior and an intense actor. While writing the script, I always had Mohan Lal in mind and he too accepted the film right away after hearing the narration.

Q)What changes did you make for the Malayalam version ?

A song and a few comedy scenes have been removed for the Malayalam version.

Q)Reports suggest that you trimmed the film ?

No ! I have not edited out even a single scene. In fact, I want to add ten more minutes to the film in the second week if everything goes well.

Q)There is a lot of discussions about the heroines. Tell us about that ?

Let me clear that both the heroines play an equal part in the film. Their characters have enough importance to the script.

Q)Your name created a terrific buzz for the film. What do you have to say ?

Nothing like that. It is the combo which has clicked with the audience. As I have given two continuous hits, everyone is talking about me.

Q)Whose idea was it to rope in Kajal for the item song ?

The song has a very good situation in the film. Our producers suggested Kajal’s name and things automatically fell in place.

Q)How was it working with DSP ?

This is my third film with him and he had done a fantastic job with this album. Composing music for this film was a huge task as the script demanded some very emotional as well as commercial numbers.

Q)What care did you take about NTR’s character in the film ?

Right from the first day, I wanted NTR to look simple in his role. I did not add extra baggage and made him perform according to his character.

Q)Finally, will you score a hattrick with Janatha Garage ?

Who doesn’t want a success under his belt and I am no different.
