Director Teja is gearing up for his next film release now. The film Nene Raju Nene Mantri is hitting the theatres on the Friday and the director is interacting with the media. He told many things about the film.
Have you narrated the story to anyone in the past?
Yes. I told this to Rajasekhar garu with the title Aham. I could not make it due to several reasons and I changed it and narrated it to Rana. That is how the film started.
When did the film start?
It started before Baahubali 2 began. But we took lot of gaps in between before completing the film.
Were you satisfied with the response that the trailer received?
Yes. I enjoyed all the response. Those who hated me all these days are appreciating me and congratulating me.
Is Rana playing a negative role?
Not exactly a negative role but we will show both the positive and negative things about our hero. Jogendra character is a replica of a common man.
Is Rana a good actor?
Rana is a clever actor. He acts smart all the time. Many will feel that they are good actors but Rana is different from all of them.
Is the story a new one completely?
No. The story is a predictable one but we presented it in a new way.
Tell us about the heroines in the film.
I have a lot of confidence on Kajal and she did well in the film. Kajal developed a lot and she delivered a great performance. Catherine played a bold role in the film. She was very much involved in the film too.
How is it working in Suresh Productions?
I always wanted to do a film in their banner and I finally did it with Suresh Babu.
