Raja Mouli -Dreams are my foundations

Our former President Abdul Kalam many times said to dream first then other things will materialize. In this concept young director SS Rajamouli is dreaming in higher level. Combination of Jr. NTR and him the films Student No1 and Simhadri were super hits and both have become stars in their respective fields. Now once again these two youngsters are coming with Yamadonga. It is a socio fantasy movie. On August 15th it is going to release as a gift of Independence Day to Telugu people. In this juncture Rajamouli expressed his views.

After Student No.1 and Simhadri now you are coming with Yamadonga. Your hopes are high is it not?
It is natural that there will be high estimation from the people and fans keeping in view of hit combination. We have to be careful in questioning ourselves because it will be very tension. Further we stepped to make this film feeling indifferent story comparing with my other two films. There will be 100% comedy and entertainment.

After the film Simhadri you both went into the path of mass. Now what is the reason to select Socio Fantasy?
Generally I like socio fantasy movies very much. I can’t say how many times I have seen the movies Pathala Bhairavi, Maya Bazar, Jagadekaveeruni Katha and so on. Imaginary magic and tricks will be more attractive and impressive. Hence I used to dream to make such fantasy films. Jr. NTR suits perfectly for such roles. Moreover it is not like Student No. 1 and Simhadri. It is entirely dissimilar one.

Is it remake of Yamagola?
No not at all. However, the interactions with Yamadharma Raju and human being are given most important by which audience get feeling of Yamagola.

Yamagola and Yamadonga, both are grandpa and grand son’s films then audience observes the differences no?
Up to stepping into the theatre audience may think in that sense no doubt. However, when the viewers digest in the story then there will not be such feelings. Moreover the scenes and sequences between NTR and Mohan Babu will impress and take them too exciting.

How you assigned Mohan Babu?
I assigned by the story itself. Many of them made me advised not to select him feeling he is a angry man, speaks about rules and regulations etc. but one thing is true he maintains perfect timings and punctuality. He never came late in the sets until the completion of the shooting. Moreover he cooperated in the shooting also. He is a well experienced artiste and I felt very happy and I cannot forget gesture and friendly manners. Mohan Babu gave life to the role what I have thought.
What is the technique you adopted to make NTR slim and handsome?
Laughingly he said if we announce all our techniques then how? If it is mixed with mass, action and other sorts of spices then if hero appears little bit stout there will not be any problem because, the story and storyline runs with emotions and feelings. But this film is entirely comedy and entertaining hence hero should appear with new out look. Hence, I strictly instructed to NTR to become slim and consequently he reduced his weight. Further, we changed the hair style and other costumes.

What is the necessary to interfere in the Keeravani’s music?
He knows everything from the starting the performing of OM. Moreover, regarding the details of entire songs he will only takes responsibility. After completing the shooting he observes the rushes and frankly he says whatever the mistakes keeping in view of the audience’s feelings. Further, he changes as per the requirements. Mainly at the time of film Vikramarkudu Annayya gave many excellent suggestions which benefited more in this film.

Except your first movie all other films are having with huge budgeted and many establishments. What is the reason?
We cannot imagine the silver screen as a small one. It should be shining. I dream more and it should be in high level. Whatever the scenes I am showing grandly my dreams are foundations to me. On those foundations alone my storyline proceeds. Moreover I like more fights, sets, costumes and everything if it is in high profile. Audience also likes more for such things. Definitely the set of Yamalokam is one of the tremendous and excellent one which will be highlight for the film. With big pillars we prepared very huge set at Ramoji Film City. In entire Asia this is the big indoor set. In addition, we brought the experts from Iran for visual effects. Everything will be highly in the film.

Why you are unable to choose sensitive stories leaving mass and other spices?

Naturally I am very much interested in such stories and films. Hence I like to make such films. I don’t say that I will not watch the sensitive story films. I liked the film Bommarillu very much, but I cannot make such type of films.
What experience you got in making this film?

It is a great experience to make socio fantasy film. All the artistes and technicians cooperated and worked hard with dedication. Entire scenes of Yamalokam were picturised in Ramoji Film City. In the beginning we thought to make the required set it may take more than three months. However, entire staff struggled and completed the set marvelously within forty five days. We have utilized the entire infrastructure available here.


Trisha Family problems

Glamorous doll Trisha is facing with many problems. She is coming out with some or other news frequently. Until now she played opposite with many top heroes and acquired a fame and name in Tollywood. Though her performance is excellent and looks appeasing, she could not come out of rumors and frequently caught in web.

In this connection, she says some people are facing with lot of problems due to various reasons. And few, those who do not have any work, create rumors and gossips. There was a news spreader that my father is not staying with us which is entirely ridiculous and meaningless. My father is one of the employees with high position in one of the hotel. Since my child-hood he worked and brought up me and my family. Then why I will look down him and send him out of the house? Is it not senseless creating such false propaganda against me and my family members?

No outsider knows about my father who is my breath and he loves me very much. Unnecessarily some people are creating all sorts of nuisance and wasting in gossiping about me and my family which I hate such things she said. In addition, she said that why these people are spreading rumors such as Trisha made suicide attempt and so on. I do not understand what is the necessary I have to go for suicide attempt? If really I have any problems then I will face all the consequences and fight boldly but I never run away showing my back. Moreover I am not a coward and there is no need for me to attempt suicide or involve in doing other sorts of mad things.

Another two wheeler and mobile companies are also in discussing with him. further, there is a news that UTV has been acquired all the rights of the film Athidhi to exhibit in the entire Andhra Pradesh for which there will be a big deal with Mahesh Babu and UTV.

Telugu actress Ileana is one of the hottest and happening actress in the industry today. She caught the fancy of the youth in a big way. She shot to fame more for her figure-glass figure and her looks than for her acting abilities. She is now said to have become proud and is playing hard to get. She is shunning the media and is also asking for unheard of remuneration for acting in films. And the result is already there for her see.
