Young hero Naga Shaurya’s forthcoming romantic entertainer, Chalo, is gearing up for a February 2nd release. On this occasion, we had a small chitchat with Shaurya. Here is the transcript.
Q) You have started your own production house for this film. How was the whole experience?
A) It’s been a very good experience. Me and my family are quite happy to enter into production with this project. We will continue producing movies on our IRA Creations banner.
Q) Tell us about your character in the film?
A) The role I have portrayed in this film is very close to my original character. I should thank my director Venky for designing this character keeping me in mind.
Q) What is Chalo all about?
A) The entire story happens in a village which is located on the Andhra-Tamil Nadu border. Why do I go to that village and what happens afterwards is narrated in an interesting manner with a good dose of entertainment.
Q) Are you planning to release the film in other languages?
A) As of now, we are not having such plans but the film will have a direct release in a few locations in Tamil Nadu.
Q) How about the film’s pre-release business?
A) Expect for Nizam, all areas were sold for fancy prices including Hindi satellite rights. We have kept Nizam with us and planning for an own release.
Q) Tell us about your parents’ support in the film’s making?
A) They did everything for the film. Especially, my mom used to come to sets daily and check everything so that the shoot was smooth.
Q) Why did you name the film as Chalo?
A) Initially, we had several options and we took time to finalize the title. In the process, I happened to listen to Ram Charan’s Bruce Lee song Le Chalo and took the word Chalo. After a thorough discussion, our team had finalized Chalo as the title.
Q) What are your next projects?
A) My next film with debutant Sai Sreeram will go on floors from February last week. It’s a different love story. I have also signed a film with yet another debutant named Srinivas.
