Koratala Shiva is flying with the success of Bharath Ane Nenu. On this occasion, we caught up with him for a detailed interview. Here is the transcript.
How are you enjoying the film’s success?
I am all set to go for a family vacation after a very long time. I am very happy with the way the film has been performing at the box office and is also receiving critical acclaim at the same time.
What was the best compliment you have received so far?
After watching the film, KTR garu called and appreciated me a lot. He said that he loved the manner in which a social message was delivered in a commercial manner without losing the grip on the script. That was the best compliment I received so far for the film.
How is the response from the political parties?
People from different political parties have been calling and congratulating me or the film. Politicians like Jaya Prakash Narayan and several others have seen the film and are praising Mahesh’s performance and my work. I am elated hearing such good compliments.
Mahesh gave credit to you for giving him a much-needed hit. How do you feel?
It was absolutely no need for Mahesh to thank me like that. It clearly shows how well brought up he is and what a real superstar can he be in the future. I am thankful for Mahesh because he has given life and soul to the film.
Talk is that you are turning producer soon?
Yes! There are some stories which I cannot handle. For this reason, I am going to produce such films with all newcomers in the future.
