Why such a long gap after Rabhasa ?
Post the failure of the film, I took an intentional break and worked hard on my script. Once I was very confident about my next film then only I announced it out.
How bad was the failure of Rabhasa ?
Luckily, things were not so bad and everyone treated me well. Stars like Bunny, Ram and Dharam Tej wanted to do films with me. I had a lot of support and things went well for me.
Was Ram your original choice for this film ?
Yes ! this role has been written completely keeping him in mind. The entire script suits Ram and his body language quite well.
How did you design Ram’s character ?
Ram will be showcased in a completely new way. The way his relationship with his dad has been showcased is quite new and will impress everyone.
The report is that there is a social message in the film ?
Yes ! there is an important social message in the film and to find out what it is you need to watch the film.
Your working experience with 14 Reels ?
They are one of the best producers I have ever worked with. Their passion and dedication towards films are just awesome. They gave me complete freedom and allowed to make a good film.
Will you ever direct films with stories written by others ?
No ! I mostly write my own stories and also do not like directing remakes.
Major highlights of the film ?
Apart from Ram’s character, Satyaraj and Rao Ramesh will impress you with their performances.
About Raashi Khanna ?
She will be seen in a complete glamorous role in the film. Also, her role will have a comical touch which will go well with the masses.
Your next projects ?
I have a few scripts lined up and will only work on them once Hyper is released well.
