Gunasekhar lines up a series of mythological dramas

1

Talented filmmaker Gunasekhar returned back to the track with Rudhramadevi. The film ended up as a decent hit and Gunasekhar took a long time and penned the script of a mythological drama Hiranyakashyapa, the story of a demon god. Rana Daggubati will be playing the title role in this big-budget film which is delayed due to the pandemic. In this while, Gunasekhar took up Shaakuntalam and the film features Samantha in the lead role. The entire shooting portions will be completed this year and the film will have a pan-Indian release next year.

Utilizing the coronavirus pandemic break, Gunasekhar penned the script of Prathaparudhra which too happens to be a periodic mythological drama. Prathaparudhra was the last king of the Kakatiya dynasty and is the grandson of Rudhramadevi. Prathaparudhra is the sequel for Rudhramadevi and Gunasekhar worked on the script of Prathaparudhra during the lockdown time. He will narrate the script of Prathaparudhra to a top actor very soon and the film will start rolling after Gunasekhar completes the shoot of Hiranyakashyapa.

Rudrama Devi director now crossing swords with Jeevitha

0

Director Gunasekhar who directed the movie Rudrama devi has been expressing his displeasure for not getting Nandi awards for his movie. Earlier, he wrote an open letter questioning CM’s decision of not granting tax exemption to his film. After Nandi awards were announced, he questioned why Rudrama Devi movie, which speaks about women empowerment was not considered for any of the first, second and third best films. For this question Jeevitha in the capacity of Jury member responded.

She responded – “We received Baahubali as well as Rudramadevi movies for the awards in the same year and both the films belong to same genre. So in the process of accommodating films of all genres, we could not give many awards (Telugu360: It is actually wrong on part of Jeevitha to say Baahubali and Rudramadevi belong to same genre. Obviously she could not differentiate the genres of historic films against the genre of folklore – Rudramadevi belongs to first and Baahubali belongs to second genre respectively).” She also responded on Gunasekhar’s question on – “Why Allu Arjun was given best character award instead of best supporting actor award”. She told, the award that was announced to Allu Arjun is called “SV Ranga Rao best character award” and he should be proud to receive that award, at least that’s what we, the jury members, had believed.

Now Gunasekhar responded to Jeevitha’s statements. He told, immediately after announcing awards, she praised Chandra Babu Naidu and his ruling. When asked by journos if she would join TDP she replied,yes, if you want. So Jeevitha lost her credibility by supporting to one political party. It is wrong to accommodate such people (film people expecting political benefits) into the jury. He also said regarding Allu Arjun’s award, jury can not change the category themselves. They have to examine the deservingness of the candidate only for the category for which he was nominated.

It seems this Nandi awards debate is going to continue for few more days!!!

Gunasekhar praises Chandrababu Naidu

The prestigious Nandi Awards announced by AP Government for the years 2014-16 seems to have turned to be a series of controversies. While some of them expressed their disrespect with their closed ones, some of them lashed out in public. Veteran director Gunasekhar took twitter to express his displeasure about his last movie Rudhramadevi getting ignored by the jury. The ace director started his question with Rudhramadevi not given tax exemption.

He reminded that Nandamuri Balakrishna’s periodic epic Gautamiputra Satakarni has been given tax exemption and for questioning this, his film Rudhramadevi has been badly ignored by the jury, which announced the Nandi awards. “In which country are we living. A film that has been made on women empowerment was not even considered for the jury award (which is given after the first, second and third best films). My sincere apologies for directing a film like Rudhramadevi” Gunasekhar added in his statement.

However hours after his statement, Gunasekhar corrected his stand and lauded AP Chief Minister Chandra Babu Naidu calling him a people’s leader. “Chandra Babu is one of the prominent leaders of the country and I was impressed with his Vision 20-20 long ago. The whole country knows about the development he initiated. I am one among his biggest admirers. He has no time to take any revenge on me. I feel there is some communication gap and I even admire Balakrishna as an actor though I am not close to him”.

“I received Nandi award for my debut film Lathi and I have received 8 Nandi awards till date in my career. Sometimes we feel bad for not getting award for our best work and this is may be because of the awards for three years announced at the same time” expressed Gunasekhar. On the whole, the ace director managed to correct his stand calling himself one of the biggest fans of Nara Chandra Babu Naidu.

Gunasekhar’s Question for Chandrababu on Rudhramadevi

Critically acclaimed filmmaker Gunasekhar after a series of debacles produced a periodic drama titled Rudhramadevi. Though the film received tax exemption in Telangana, AP Government did not approve the proposal of tax exemption. Now the AP Government announced Nandi awards for the years 2014, 15 and 16 respectively. He even reminded that Balakrishna’s Gautamiputra Satakarni has been given tax exemption last year and his film Rudhramadevi did not receive a single award as he questioned AP Government regarding the tax exemption.

Rudhramadevi elevated the culture and the life story of warrior queen Rudhramadevi but it failed to impress the jury asked Gunasekhar. “I directed a film reminding about the history of a warrior queen which could not get minimum appreciation from the AP government. Sorry for making a film like Rudhramadevi” revealed Gunsekhar who questioned the jury along with Chandrababu Naidu about the film missing in the list of the awards for the year 2015.
