Ram Charan’s recent film Dhruva might have been a remake, but it was a subject that he hasn’t worked on so far.
One look at his previous films and it is pretty obvious that he had been acting in typical commercial potboilers for a long time now and had stuck to the “mass image” that came with it.
So, he took up Dhruva solely because he wanted to do films driven by content. And the person who inspired him to do so was director Mani Ratnam.
Speaking at a recent promotional event, the actor revealed that it was on the advice of the ace-director, that he took up the film.
“Mani Ratnam had told me to occasionally listen to different and experimental stories instead of only concentrating on commercial cinema,” Ram Charan said while adding that he wasn’t interested in breaking records anymore. “With a focus on records and making money, you tend to miss a good story,” he said.
