“This is my first film. I have worked in Hindi only and not even in Bhojpuri. I am kicked about this because I don’t even know the language. Surender Reddy came to Mumbai and told me that I should do this role. I asked how could I take it up, there is a language problem. He replied that I shouldn’t be worrying and he will handle it. I saw the confidence him and all he said was I had to learn the dialogues a little bit. The entire team showered a lot of affection and gave me cues and helped me with my next dialogues. It was a lovely experience and I even cried when I saw the film. Next time I will do the dubbing too.”
“I got a Film Fare award for Aankho Dekhi and lot of appreciation for Masaan but this one truly made me cry. Surender Reddy remarked that I did a great job without knowing the language. First time I really love myself and I am thankful that I am from Bihar, living in Mumbai and I am doing a movie in Telugu. Leaders boundaries banathe hain but actors barriers thod dhete hai..be it MS Subbalakshmi or anyone. I am doing a second film called Shankarabharanam directed by Kona Venkat.”
“I did lots of work in Hindi but here I have to be a performer, prove myself here without knowing the dialogues. It is a surprise role and I can’t talk about it now. In Telugu there is a loud kism ki acting, I want to break that loudness..I want to bring realistic approach to acting, with Shankarabharanam I will prove that. I love this city, there are so many eating joints, I tried everything and feel happy seeing the cultured people. I was just telling my wife that we should settle down in Hyderabad.”.
