Even though he is way past his prime, hero Srikanth is still going strong in Tollywood. He will next be seen in Krishna Vamsi’s family entertainer Govindudu Andari Vadele. We caught up with Srikanth for a brief chit chat. Let’s see what he has to say.
Tell us about your role in the film ?
I Play Ram Charan’s uncle called Bangari in the film. My character will be quite entertaining and has slight differences with his dad which is played by Prakash Raj.
So that means you play a negative role in the film ?
It is not an out an out negative role, but it has a few shades of grey. My character has a lot of jealousy in the film.
How was it working with Krishna Vamsi ?
Oh ! it was a wonderful experience working with him. He is a master at making family entertainers, and even with GAV he has proved it once again.
How was it working under the production of Badla Ganesh ?
I knew Ganesh from the days of Vinodam. The way he has come up in life is extremely inspiring. He has not compromised on the production values, and you can see it in every frame of the film.
Did Chiranjeevi give any inputs to you during the filming ?
He is very happy with the way the film has shaped up. In fact, a few scenes were added between me and Charan keeping his suggestions in mind.
You have worked with both father and son. What major difference did you find between the two ?
I have known Charan very closely and was a bit apprehensive as to how he would behave on the sets. But he was so professional and courteous, that he reminded of Chiranjeevi garu right away. Acting wise, both of them have quite a different approach in their style.
Would you be more open to doing multi-starrers from now on ?
Why not ?. I would love to do films with every one. As of now, I have four films lined up as a solo hero. Once I wrap them up, I will definitely do multi-starrers.
