Venky Atluri made his debut in Tollywood as an actor with ‘Sneha Geetham’. However, he turned a director with ‘Tholi Prema’ movie which starred Varun Tej in the lead. It has become a success at the box office and now he is all set to repeat the magic again with Nithin’s ‘Rang De’. The movie will hit the screens tomorrow i.e. on 26th March.
On this occasion, the young director has shared his views on Rang De.
Speaking about its story, Venky said that he thought of doing a film based on an emotional concept that relates to most of the people in real life as well. ‘Accordingly, I chose the issues that arise after marriage and weaved the story. ‘The final forty minutes breathe life into the movie and I ensured the emotional content is depicted naturally than unfolding it melodramatically.’ explained Venky.
About choosing Nithin, the director revealed that the Ishq hero was not in his mind initially but roped him in when the movie’s producer suggested his name. Besides, Venky stated that he was surprised when both Nithin and Keerthy okayed to do the film in the first sitting itself. And he added that they breathed life into the roles of Anu and Arjun believing in the subject more than him.
Moreover, Venky Atluri expressed that he is awaiting Rang De’s release as a student waits for his exam results. ‘I got to work with the great technicians like Devi Sri Prasad, PC Sriram and etc which I always looked up to them. Above all, I was fortunate to have magnanimous producers who never imposed any restrictions on the budget. Finally, the trailer has brought so many accolades for me.’ said Venky.
Subsequently, the director also stated that Keerthy Suresh was so friendly to work with and shared that all his preconceived notions about working with her were gone for a toss from the second day of her entry in sets.
Speaking about his future projects, Venky Atluri clarified that his next film will be jointly produced by Sithara Entertainments and Sri Venkateswara Creations. He said that the actors will be decided once the subject which is in the initial stages gets finalised.
