Naga Shourya is busy with the promotions of his latest film Ashwathama and on this occasion, we caught up with him for a detailed interview. Here is the transcript.
Reason behind your emotional speech at the audio launch?
Right from the day, this film was launch, I have gone through various emotions in my life. I have closely seen every aspect of film making and how people stay with you and what are the problems you face. That is the reason I said I have learned a lot in this film. I have got the tile of the film tattooed on my chest and you can understand how special the film is for me.
On whom has been this film based?
I have a very close friend called Priya and I have written this story keeping her in mind. What if something happens to a girl close to me or in fact any other girl in the country. The story is quite relatable for every girl in society.
Did you allow changes that were requested by the director in your story?
From the day I started writing the story, Teja was with me. He gave a lot of inputs and I happily added them in my story. Teja has made the film in a superb manner and everyone will love his work once the film releases.
Why did you opt for Ghibran in place of Sri Charan for the BGM?
The moment we saw the final output, I felt that this needs to be taken to the next level and it will only happen with an experienced person like Ghibran. We met him in Chennai and he told us that he will only work on this film after he sees the movie. He saw the film and liked it so much. His BGM is the biggest asset.
Comparisons with Rakshasudu?
Yes, the film has that flavor and in fact, the audience will also remember Khakee and Khaidi. As the investigation and some set up of the film is will have that flavor and will impress one and all.
Struggle after the failure of Nartanasala?
For six months, there was silence in our lives. The respect, finance, and many other factors were on a stake with me and my family. From the day the film began, we knew the output and as I gave the word to the director we went ahead.
The reason behind the change of image?
I am sick and tired of doing the same old love stories and also want to prove that I can do any sort of role in my career. As an actor, I want to grow and Ashwathama is the first step.
Your future projects in your production?
There are so many projects in my production house and I am writing a love story as of now. I am planning to make this film with a young hero. Everything depends on how this film works out at the box office.
