us about the hero character in Muddula Koduku?
Ravi Krishna plays a middle class boy next door called Venu.
As the title suggest, Muddula Koduku is the relationship between
mother and son. Like 7GBC, the last half an hour of this film
too is very emotional and it would make you cry. Ravi Krishna
has given very subtle performance in those last 30 minutes.
Unlike 7GBC, a couple of songs in this film are duet songs
shot in abroad.
us about the progress of Bangaram?
The schedule would start on 19th of this month in Tamilnadu
and the shooting would continue at a stretch till the completion
of film at various locations. After Tamilnadu shooting, we
would shoot in Hyderabad for 60 days and in Araku for 10 days.
do not need to go for abroad for songs shoot, as all the songs
in this film are situational. National award winning music
director Vidya Sagar has already recorded 2 extraordinary
songs so far. There would be two heroines in this film. Meera
Chopra is doing the female lead. We are yet to identify the
right actress for the role of another heroine. This film is
a commercial entertainer that would have all the ingredients
we expect from Pawan Kalyan's film.
is one director who goes into minute details while working
on the script. We employed many people and coordinated among
the offices situated in various places to work over the script.
We have the perfect script with minute details ready. We used
to do such kind of meticulous script work for Shankar's films
the commercial aspect, Bangaram would become such a big hit
that it would continue playing in theaters.
did you prefer soft title like Muddula Koduku and Bangaram
for your films?
We titled the films as per the demand of script. These titles
might appear soft for you now. But after watching the film,
you would realize how apt they are. We started the Pawan Kalyan's
film Kushi with the title 'Cheppalani Vundi' in Telugu and
'Muttum' in Tamil. Muttum means kiss. Director Surya wanted
Muttum title and I wanted to change it. Somehow the word Kushi
stuck with us. Kushi means happiness. Kushi is not even Indian
word. It is basically a Persian word that penetrated into
all Indian languages. The people who questioned about the
title Kushi before release got convinced after watching the
me tell you another incident. T Krishna wanted to name his
Pratighatana film as Goonda Rajyam. But Ramoji Rao wanted
it as Pratighatana as it's apt for story. After the release
of film, everybody accepted that Pratighatana is the right
seem to be getting the best out of Vidya Sagar all the time?
I produced 3 films - Run, Dhool & Gilli - with Vidya Sagar's
music in Tamil and all these films were blockbusters. Five
Star music also arranged a special function and felicitated
him for providing chartbuster music. Likewise, Bangaram music
would also be extraordinary.
Krishna seems to be sticking to the roles of boy-next-door
He would be doing such kinds of roles for the first 5-6 films.
Later on, he would be doing powerful roles.
are you planning to release Muddula Koduku?
Currently dubbing and rerecording of the film is going on.
We are planning to release Muddula Koduku simultaneously in
Telugu and Tamil on 12th August 2005.
about Ravi Krishna's film in the direction of Jyothi Krishna?
Shooting of this film is currently going on. We decided title
for Tamil version as Kallan with the tagline 'Romantic Thief'.
Kallam means thief in Tamil. In Telugu we have not decided
on the title yet. Khareedu (value of love), Mayagadu and Kithabu
are the titles under consideration for this film.
are you planning to direct a film?
Right now, I am very busy as producer.
