Nandamuri Kalyanram is among the actors whose films are being released this Sankranti. His Entha Manchivadavura is releasing on January 15. “I don’t have any tension as I am happy that my film’s budget definitely worked out well”, he says.
Most of the screens will be occupied by the two big films being released this festive season. Ask if he had got space for his movie, he says “For a big festival like Sankranti, big films and medium-budget films also release. My film has got a good number of screens, just as we had planned, so, no complaints”, he says.
Talking about the Entha Manchivadavura, Kalyanram says it’s a complete family entertainer. “It’s the remake of a Gujarati film, Oxygen, but we changed a lot. When I first saw the film, I didn’t like it, but after director Satish Vegesna changed the script, I loved it,” he says.
His brother Tarak (Jr NTR) and his wife both wanted him to do this kind of film. “When Sathamanam Bhavathi released, my wife wanted me to do that kind of a role. I told her that it was up to the director. So, now the same director has come up with this script, and I am happy,” says the Pataas star.
The actor says his role in the movie is a positive one. “It is very close to my own life. The character is very simple, calm, and always has a smile on his face.
When my uncles and aunts visited my home, I would wish they would stay for a long time. I like the atmosphere of a home filled with people. There are a few episodes like that in the film, which I liked,” he says, adding, his real-life situation is similar to the one in this film. “We are nine people staying in my house and I always spend an hour talking with them before I go for shoots.”
Kalyanram is all praise for music director Gopi Sundar.
“When I saw the film Ninnu Kori, I liked the music composed by Gopi Sundar. I have been wanting to work with him for some time and my wish came true with this film,” he says.
He also commended director Satish Vegesna on his writing skills....
