Megastar Chiranjeevi is back to what he is best at. He will be coming before audience after nearly a decade. Khaidi No 150 is just few hours away from its release and here is the exclusive interview from Mega Star himself.
Do you regret missing these 9 years in movie field ?
No Not at all, there are no regrets whatsoever. Every decision is made by me after going much thought process. I didn't miss cinema world in these years as I am closely moving with it even when I am active in politics.
Kajal seemed to have revived trend by pairing with you after pairing with Charan..
Ya.. I told this at pre release function too. Probably it is for the first time such thing has happened. Ram Charan, Kajal is a hit pair. Even our pair has got good acceptance with the posters released so far.
What is the reason behind choosing a remake for a milestone film ?
After deciding to re-enter movies, I heard lot of scripts and of these, there are some scripts which I thought to move forward, but as it is my comeback film, apart from entertainment, social message should also have to be there. So after watching Kaththi we thought that this is the project we have been waiting for.
Are you tensed to watch you back on big screen after 9 nine long years ?
Not actually. We have good product in hand. All the teasers, songs, trailers have got tremendous response which build up our confidence. I am curious to watch me back onscreen.
What kind of changes did you made for this remake ?
Basic story plot will be the same. We tried to cover up few lags and incorporated a comedy track with Brahmanandam, Raghubabu etc., Dialogues will be completely different and we changed song situations as well. Few improvements were also made to suit our nativity.
Though your last movie released 10 years before, your look in this movie is much younger than that. What kind of training did you underwent before moving onto sets
For this all credit goes to my son Ram Charan. He is my gym trainer, dietician etc., He suggested me what to eat, what not to, how much to.. everything. Despite his busy schedule he did all this. Besides all this, I try to be calm and composed.
How well do you think Charan managed his role as a producer
Initially I was skeptical when Charan said he will be producing this movie. Now I am very much impressed with his commitment. He has so much of conviction. He provided me the best technicians. I really appreciate.
Naga Babu's comments in the function created controversy. How do you react on this ?
Every individual reacts to an issue in his own way. Naga Babu reacted on his way. Generally I give deaf ear to these kind of comments made on me. Naga Babu is correct in his thoughts.
This Sankranthi, You and Your friend Balakrishna are competing for Sankranthi. Both movies are milestone flicks. There is huge buzz on it. What is your comment
I attended for the muhurtam shot of GPSK and on that occasion, I wished all the best then. GPSK is a genre which is totally different from us. I wish Satakarni to be hit as well.
What are your future projects after Khaidi No 150
Much awaited Uyyalawaada Narasimha Reddy is in stand by mode and we will revive this project after Khaidi release. Surender Reddy is going to narrate script to me by this month end. My film with Boyapati will be my 152nd film which will be produced by Geetha Arts.
Are you out of politics as of now
There is a vacuum in politics in current scenario. Congress is not in Power and in this gap I will be occupied by movies and Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu show.
Can we expect PK kind of films
Except for first scene. (laughs). Aamir Khan is such a talented and dedicated actor, I don't think I am as talented as him.
Will you be interested in biopics ?
I am open for all kind of roles but important thing here is whose biopic will it be.
There is a competition within Mega family. Comment on it
There is a healthy competition within our family. Youngsters be it Charan, Allu Arjun, Dharam Tej, Varun Tej, Sirish they all are cool with it. Everyone enjoys eachother's success.
That concludes our interview with Chiranjeevi..
