Q)Is there any specific reason to have ‘Bengal Tiger’ as the title?
Ever since the title was announced, so many people speculated that the movie is a powerful police story with Kolkata as a backdrop. But this is a complete Telugu story with Ravi Teja having the skills of the ferocious Bengal Tiger.

Bengal Tiger is an out and out commercial movie but the characterization of the hero would be very different. The flashback episode will be a huge highlight of the movie.

As said earlier, I have presented Ravi Teja in quite a new way. His role will be quite cunning and entertain the audience big time.
Q)Why did you cast cast Boman Irani?
In the movie, there is a CM character. He should have a royal look and should also perform well. So we approached him and Boman has done a wonderful job in the film.

Both Tamannah and Raashi have prominent roles. They are glamorous and at the same time performed hugely well.
Q)What was your reaction when your film with Power Star was cancelled?

Q)Tell us your journey with Ravi Teja?
He is a wonderful human being with a lot of energy. He can bring a lot of depth to a scene with his performance.
Q)What are the highlights of Bengal Tiger?
Ravi Teja himself is the major highlight of the film. Apart from that, the six minute flashback episode and comedy scenes are the other highlights. Everyone will be thoroughly entertained.
