Each actor goes by way of the Friday blues earlier than their film launch. Throughout promotions although, they challenge confidence and contentment. Forward of the discharge of Gang Chief, Nani is his typical jovial self and says he abhors taking a break from shoot earlier than he begins his subsequent. That is additionally one cause why he has been transferring from one movie to the opposite for the previous few years and in addition taking good care of his manufacturing home that stored him busy. As quickly as Gang Chief releases, he’s shortly transferring to the units of Indraganti Mohan Krishna’s V.
On the media interplay, he says he’s glad to have been requested a query on Jersey not making sufficient cash on the field workplace. He elaborates, “For a movie like Jersey which has a 36- year-old cricketer, who’s a loser, lacks bodily health and has points in coping with his spouse and son that every one turns into part of a tragic climax, has damaged each stereotype in Telugu cinema and has collected 30 crore on the theatres. How will you say it collected much less? When Center Class Abbayi minted cash, individuals questioned me if I’ll ever do a superb, content material oriented script and now after I do Jersey, individuals comment it didn’t beat MCA on the BO. Jersey is being remade in a number of languages and I’m trying forward for a launch in China and on the home degree, made income. There’s no cause for complain.”
Jersey was intense and he’d really feel ‘heavy’ on a regular basis going again residence after the shoot, say Nani. However Gang Chief was like taking part in round. Be it laughter or melodrama, any emotion requires the identical effort. If an actor does it genuinely, individuals will imagine it and prefer it, he says as a matter of reality.
Isn’t it alarming that his title has been added as a prefix to the title? Doesn’t it imply he takes away the credit score of the director by calling it ‘Nani’s Gang Chief’ as an alternative of ‘Nani…Gang Leader’ like ‘Kalyan Ram Katti’? He dismisses it as a mere beauty change and says that one shouldn’t be studying an excessive amount of into it. “Except for the title confusion, there is no issue. It is a Vikram K Kumar’s cinema. When the title comes for discussion, we didn’t want to have any dispute so it was the production’s call,” he provides.
He remembers the day when he was practising cricket for Jersey, director Vikram Ok Kumar waited patiently to share the title with him and requested his opinion. Comparisons are uncalled for as Gang Chief belongs to a special style. Nani warns, “Don’t expect too much romance here, this isn’t a love story. There is a nice, emotional angle and the story is very entertaining and least complicated. It is a very simple story, even if there are twists and turns, it’s still fun. Nani goes to elaborate his character, Pencil Parthasarathy — he writes books and believes he is world famous. He watches all English films, and writes books ‘inspired’ by them. He now wants his 29th novel to be original. As the process of his revenge begins, his writing too takes off in a parallel manner. His friend and publisher knows his so called talent. Revenge is an intense emotion but here it is dealt in a light hearted manner by four women and a child.”
He provides that every one the characters belong to totally different age teams, every one with a special attribute trait. Their background is totally different, their cause for revenge too is totally different. Nani offers with them at their particular person degree and the villain (Karthikeya Gummakonda) at his degree. He reveals Vikram’s narration is entertaining, his hilarious dialogues come to the fore. He remembers, “I laughed loads, you’ll do within the theatres too. There was no movie up to now that tapped his comedian angle of Vikram. Vikram mentioned he didn’t know there’s a lot enjoyable in doing movies and not using a break like me, Gang Chief was an eye fixed opener.”
Karthikeya Gummakonda’s inclusion within the crew occurred and not using a fuss, says Nani who remembers with a smile the time when Karthikeya spoke to him non cease for 15 minutes when he was supplied the function. There have been different actors who have been being thought of for the function, however Karthikeya by no means gave them an opportunity as he was approached first and was greater than excited to take it up.
On Aniruddh, Nani says he was taken for the vitality he infuses in his songs. “For Jersey, we did debate a bit however repeating him for Gang Chief, there was no dialogue. We didn’t want huge jokes from Saranya or Lakshmi — one look and one phrase was sufficient to get what was required.”
