Stylish director Gautham Menon has turned producer with Nithin’s latest film Courier Boy Kalyan. We caught up with him for a bried interview today. Let’s see what he has to say.
Q) Why production ?
I came to the industry to produce films and am doing it from the past few years. When I heard this script, I thought it would be great if I myself produce it and joined hands with Guru films and ventured into production in Tollywood.
Q) Why is the film delayed for so long ?
As there were some problems with the Tamil version, we decided to stop the Telugu film too.
Q) Did this delay irritate Nithin ?
Absolutely not. Nithin himself is a producer and adjusted with the delay wonderfully. He is a producer’s delight.
Q) Whose idea was it to name the film Courier Boy Kalyan ?
It was completely Nithin’s idea to have that name as everyone knows that he is a big fan of Pawan Kalyan.
Q) How different are both the Tamil and Telugu versions ?
Jai is doing the Tamil version and yes, there are some difference in both the versions. There is a lot of comedy in the Tamil version where as romance has been added keeping in Nithin’s image in mind.
Q) Tell us about Nithin’s performance in the film ?
He has done a wonderful job and looks handsome in the film. He also took good care of the production and helped us a lot.
Q) What are your inputs for this film ?
After hearing Prem Sai’s script, I was involved with the editing part of the film and had my say about the final cut.
Q) Why do you always make either cop films or love stories ?
Laughs ! I wont be making cop films for some time now. Coming to romance, everyone loves that genre and I will keep making romantic films.
Q) How is your film with Chaitanya shaping up ?
We have already shot 60% of the film and it has come out really well. Chaitanya is doing a superb job in this action entertainer.
Q) Would there be a sequel for Ye Maaya Chesyave ?
Yes ! The Tamil version will have a sequel but not for the Telugu version as it ended on a happy note.
