  • Why don't you release your films simultaneously in Tamil?

    Which hero doesn't want to expand to another language. I never force my producers to expand my market. It's always the producer's choice if they want to invest.

  • What is your true inspiration to turn as an Actor?

    Firstly, thanks for understanding that it's a difficult job! I really get inspired from every actor; someone who is not on the top, who is not working, who has stopped working.. Everyone.. I think in a way, every actor in the Indian film industry has inspired me in different ways.

  • How was your childhood with Pawan Kalyan?

    Kalyan Babai used to live with us since he was 16 and till after his second movie. He used to be in charge of me and used to take me horse-riding and other places I wanted to go. We've had some really great times together. He was a very naughty uncle.

  • Tell us about characterizations in Dhruva?

    Villain in the film is an young scientist, Padmasree awardee and an inspirational icon in the society. Hero has to match his intelligence. But, hero and villain don't want to kill each other. It is about changing the perspective and thought process. Such type of rivalry was seen in Hollywood films like Heat (Robert De Niro & Al Pacino) and The Dark Knight (Batman vs Joker). The approach between hero and villain in Dhruva is intelligently designed.

  • Tell us about script changes Kathi has undergone for Khaidi No. 150?

    There were considerable changes made for Kathi script to suit dad without disturbing the content which Murugadoss has written. These changes have been done to fulfill the expectations movie lovers. These are minute, yet beautiful changes. I have never seen him this enthusiastic even when he worked for his last film 9 years back. He is looking very young. He has worked on himself a lot. He gets up at 5:30 and hits gym. The first take is taken at 8 am every single day. VV Vinayak kept on requesting me to delay dad’s visit to set at 8 am. Me, bunny and other heroes have to buckle up now, work harder and be more disciplined. My dad has come with a whip now. He has given his 100%. I just saw a song in edit room. His dances are a feast.

  • You took a bold decision to attend USA premieres for Dhruva. What if the film got rejected?

    We were confident about the content of Dhruva. I usually am tensed about releases. I don’t even venture out to watch premieres of my films in Hyderabad. I have decided that living in fear is not the solution. I want to jump into ocean first and then to learn swimming. In case of bad reports, we had to cover all centers as we promised them. I have experienced immense appreciation in the first premiere at New Jersey. Our tension was relieved after that show.

  • Did you predict the demonetization to affect the collections on the opening day?

    Dhruva is the first major Telugu release after demonetization. We didn’t have a choice as we had to release dad’s 150th film for Sankranthi and we have to ensure a sufficient gap between these two films. We did expect Dhruva’s openings to be 15% - 20% lesser than my previous films. And we had 15% to 20% lesser openings on Friday. The content and positive mouth talk ensured that it picked up from day 2 to result in packed houses. The word of mouth is so powerful that it worked against the blues of demonetization.

  • What is Chiranjeevi response for Dhruva?

    He never blatantly said mistakes in my past 7 films. He always appreciated good things in my earlier movies. We never dwell on failures. My dad always thinks that the next generation should achieve more than the present generation. My mom tells him to sit with me and watch DVDs of my films to analyse my work. He feels that I should evolve myself and he doesn't believe in spoon-feeding. When I returned from USA today morning, dad told me that my performance in Dhruva is better than that of Magadheera. Then I realised that he never spoke like that for the past 7 films. I felt happy to see my father feel proud of my acting.

  • Tell us about songs in Dhruva?

    There are only 2 songs in the original. We had 4 songs in Telugu version. We have made sure that they are short in duration. Music director duo is a good asset to the film and they did fantastic background music. We wanted to songs to be away from the popular taste and it worked well. We (me and Suri) wanted the fourth song (Neethone dance slot) to be a romantic number with montages on hero and heroine. But, Allu Arvind garu insisted that we should have a proper dance number. It was a good call by him.

  • What’s the reason for such a rapid physical transformation for Dhruva?

    I just wanted to be fit for the role when I accepted the film. Then I thought to myself what I was contributing to the subject. During script modifications in my farm house in Bangalore, Suri came to me and said that since we don’t have to contribute much to the script, we have to show some difference with looks. He has added Ashta Digbandhanam concept and altered the characterization. I had opportunity to do six pack during Magadheera and Toofan, but didn’t do it as it was not absolutely essential. Suri convinced me to do a six pack for Dhruva and I am happy that everybody is talking about it. The opening scene of the film shows how intelligent the villain is. To counter that and to convince audiences about the gruesome training hero goes through, I had to do a 6 pack.

  • What are the additions/modifications done for the original script of Dhruv?

    Ashta Digbandhanam: The concept of 8 is wonderfully thought out by the director Surender Reddy. It’s not there in the original. The concept of Ashta Digbandhanam gave completeness to the film.

  • How did Dhruva happen?

    I saw Thani Oruvan on fourth day of release and loved it as an audience. NV Prasad (producer and distributor from Ceded) asked me to act in Telugu remake. I felt happy that a man from such a mass territory like Ceded has envisioned me as a hero for such a class and different film like Thani Oruvan. I saw the film again and okayed it. I felt that the content is way stronger than any hero image. Then I approached Allu Arvind garu.

  • How was your experience working with Surender Reddy?

    After several deliberations of working together, I finally forced him to okay this remake and I'm glad he agreed because the result is wonderful.

  • Was Bruce Lee movie a lesson for you?

    Not just Bruce Lee, every film has got something to teach. And I think with time, the way I choose a story has changed and I should say it is a good change because I am slowly moving out of the zone I was in.

    View Source:

  • Did you do any homework for your role considering you had to play a serious character?

    (Laughs) No! I'm not a method actor! But yes the work put into my physical appearance was immense. I've worked as hard as ever but this time the change is more prominently visible.

  • How was the experience of working with Aravind Swamy?

    It was obviously great! I was initially tensed because he is such a senior actor. Plus, he has already done the same film earlier and was instrumental in its success. It was amazing sharing screen space with him. He transitioned into a new person on camera and the fact that we made a great bond offscreen made it difficult to perform on camera at times. In fact, he had performed with such conviction in the original that it was difficult for us to even think of someone else for the remake. And why not? He was an asset there and we wanted him in this film too.

    View Source:

  • Your transition is interesting. Are you trying for an image makeover?

    We just can’t be constant like the statue at Tank Bund and have to keep changing with time. The image of previous films and the roles cannot stick to us forever. We need to try out new arenas all the time and need to transition according to each role.

    View Source:

  • Why did you choose to do a remake movie?

    Well, I don’t have ego and don't mind remaking someone else's story. And because it would be new for our audiences, there is nothing wrong in showing it to them. When N.V. Prasad first brought the story to me, I really liked the subject and felt it was a new theme that our people would appreciate. This is just like any hero-centric film we are used to but with a twist in terms of narration.

    View Source:

  • How is the anticipation before the release of Dhruva?

    I'm going through mixed feelings; there is tension and at the same time I'm confident too. It's just like the release of any of my other films release but since it’s a remake, the tension is a bit more pronounced. Since the story has already proved its mettle, the desire is that we should go a notch higher.
