Nara Rohit has created a league of his own and is doing some interesting films off late. His latest venture is the action thriller Asura, which is up for release this Friday. On this occasion, we caught up with Rohit for a brief interview. Let’s see what he has to say.
Q) Tell us a bit about Asura ?
Asura is complete action packed thriller in my style. Story is the key asset and my character will be the highlight of the film.
Q) What kind of a role do you play in this film ?
I play the role of a jailer whose is very adamant about his work. My character will be quite new and the film will have all the necessary commercial aspects.
Q) You have played the cop in your previous film too. How different is Asura ?
My characters in both the films are quite different from each other. Right from the story to the narration, everything will be very new in this film.
Q) You are also producing this film. What made you turn producer ?
If not an actor, I would have definitely become a producer. I had decent knowledge about films and always wanted to produce them. From now on, I will make more films in my banner.
Q) Why do you always work with newcomers ?
Right from the beginning of my career, many new comers approached me with interesting scripts which completely suit my body language and my style of working. I find it very easy and comfortable to work with them.
Q) All your films are mostly catered to A centre audience. Why is that so ?
Asura will change that myth. This film has all the hardcore commercial aspects and an item song to impress the front bencher’s.
Q) Most of your films have not done well recently. Any particular reason ?
We have done our part and me and my team take complete responsibility for the failures. But hopefully, all my upcoming films will do well as I am planning them pretty carefully.
Q) What are your future projects ?
I have nearly four to five films in the pipeline. After Asura, Sankara will release and then two of my new projects will go on floors in June and August.
Q) When can we see you in a six pack look ?
Smiles ! Hopefully there is something in the pipeline, and I will let you know when the time comes.
Q) Tell us about the director and heroine ?
I knew Vijay from my Banam days. I heard this script long back and the project materialized now. Coming to the heroine Priya Banerjee, she has done a decent job in her role.
Q) Does your uncle watch all your films. What suggestions does he give ?
Yes ! he watches all my films. He is yet to see my last film Rowdy Fellow and always suggests me to make my films in a more commercial way so that the masses can enjoy more.
