Sharwanand has been in superb form post the success of Shatamanam Bhavati. He is back with yet another hilarious entertainer called Radha. The film is up for a release tomorrow and we caught up with him for a detailed interview. Here is the transcript.
Are you tensed about Radha’s release?
Yes! I am a bit tensed as there a lot of the expectations from the audience post the success of Shatamanam Bhavati.
Why did you choose such a commercial film like Radha?
Frankly, I was myself bored of doing the same old serious stuff so I decided to do Shatamanam and now Radha. I think I still have time to do those roles and as I am young enough, my concentration is towards simple and entertaining stuff.
How did this project materialize?
In fact, this film started even before Shatamanam Bhavati but as Dil Raju garu felt that Shatamanam needs to come early for Sankranthi because of its subject, we resumed this film after Shatamanam’s release.
Tell us about your role?
I play a very interesting character which has full of mass elements. How I become a police officer and things change for good in my character is the whole film about.
Did you have any problem with the title Radha?
No! not at all. Even I did not want to showcase myself in a too much heroic manner so we named the film Radha. As the heroine’s name is also Radha, the title is quite apt.
How are you enjoying your recent rise in your star status?
I am very relaxed and am currently very happy with the way things are going with me. I am taking things one at a time and am seeing that all my films come out quite entertainingly.
Did you ever expect Shatamanam to be such a huge hit?
I always felt that the film will be a decent hit but never imagined that it will be such a rage all over. The amount of appreciation that I have received for this film is too much and I am very thankful to the audience who made this film a huge hit.
Why are you not on social media?
Frankly speaking, I don’t even know how to use these platforms and feel that too much time is being spent on these things which are taking away too much of time in our lives. I am very happy with the way my career is going and don’t want to distract myself.
