Comedian turned hero, Srinivasa Reddy’s fun-entertainer, Jamba Lakidi Pamba is hitting the screens on June 22nd. On this occasion, we caught up with him for a brief interview. Here is the transcript.
Q) Were you satisfied with Jayammu Nischayammu Raa’s outcome?
To be frank, we were a bit disappointed with the film’s result. Everyone thought that the film will be successful but the film’s length and demonetization also had an effect on the film’s result.
Q) After a brief gap, you are once again coming as a solo hero. Tell us about it?
After Jayammu Nischayammu Raa this is my second film as a lead. As per the story, I need to act as a lady and I took this as a challenge and performed it the best of my capabilities. Hope the audience will also like it.
Q) Are there any similarities between iconic Jamba Lakidi Pamba and this film?
Expect for characters interchange nothing is similar between both the films. That too in old JLP, the entire city get interchanged. But in our film, the lead pair only get interchanged in their genders.
Q) Tell us about your director?
The moment I heard the script I immediately said okay to do this film. Our director JB Murali Krishna has narrated the film in an entertaining manner with a good message.
Q) Apart from you and the heroine who else did major roles in the film?
Vennela Kishore will be seen in a hilarious character. Tanikella Bharani and Posani’s roles will also have the proper weight.
Q) Are you part of Geethanjali-2 also?
No. Till now, no one approached me regarding that film.
Q) Apart from this, what are your upcoming projects?
Currently, I’m doing NTR-Trivikram’s film, Ravi Teja-Seenu Vaitla’s project and F2 with Anil Ravipudi. Pantham is ready for release. Recently, I okayed a film as the lead hero. Will reveal the complete details shortly.
