I hope to get awards for 'Hamari Beti': Naidu (INTERVIEW)
By B. Anuradha, Indo-Asian News Service
Hyderabad, June 10 (IANS) Well-known Telugu producer Rama Naidu is coming up with a comedy titled
"Sri Krishna 2006" and says it will entertain all sections of society.
"It's a full-blown comedy aimed at all sections. I have been laughing from the day I heard the script and Vijendraprasad has ably transformed it on celluloid."
But his expectations are high from the Hindi film "Hamari Beti", which has an atypical story. "It is a sensitive film revolving around a dumb and deaf girl who becomes an Odissi dancer after many struggles."
Q: How do you describe "Sri Krishna 2006"?
A: It's a full-blown comedy aimed at all sections. It will be on the lines of my blockbuster "Aha Naa Pellanta". I have been laughing from the day I heard the script and Vijendraprasad has ably transformed it on celluloid.
Srikanth and Venu have done a good job and actress Gauri Munjal is promising.
Q: You seem to be fascinated with art films and your next, "Hamari Beti", is ready for release?
A: That's right. I hope to grab big awards for "Hamari Beti". Director A.K. Bir has delivered a sensitive film revolving around a dumb and deaf girl who becomes an Odissi dancer after many struggles.
We intend to participate in various foreign film festivals before eventually releasing it in India. As of now, I am keeping my fingers crossed.
Q: Is it true that you are making a cop story with Suresh Gopi in Malayalam and also trying to fulfil your ambition to make films in all Indian languages soon?
A: It's not a cop story but a story set in a village. Suresh and Jayaraj are doing a good job and we intend to release it in July.
I am also planning films in Marathi, Bhojpuri and Punjabi, to name a few, in order to accomplish my long cherished goal of making films in all Indian languages. My dream will come true sooner rather than later.
Q: Will you revive Hindi film production?
A: Yes, in a big way. I am going to Mumbai to talk to director Satish Kaushik. We intend to launch a film in August. Either it could be a remake of my earlier hits or a straight subject.
Similarly, I want to make Telugu films regularly and I am finalising a few subjects to keep my banner floating high.
