“I’d Love To See Samantha Continue Acting After Our Marriage,” Naga Chaitanya



“I’d Love To See Samantha Continue Acting After Our Marriage,” Naga Chaitanya

I’d Love To  See Samantha Continue Acting After Our Marriage,” NagaChaitanya Opens Up On His Impending Marriage With Samantha Ruth

If I thought I’d be encountering a nervous young actor awaiting the release of his big film , I was wrong.Telugu superstar Nagarajuna’s elder born is Naga Chaitanya is surprisingly comfortable in his space.

“We’ve worked really hard on Premam. Though it’s a remake of a Malyalam film, we wanted to give it a fresh look feel and execution. For me the challenge was to play a guy in love who goes from age 14 to 30. I loved doing the physical and emotional transitions. Also, love and its fascinating facets are very close to my heart.Yeah , this is a film very close to home.”

He laughs shyly, as talk veers towards Chaitanya’s  relationship with actress Samanth Ruth.  Chaitanya is disarmingly candid about his feelings and plans with Samantha. “Yes, we’ve been in  a relationship for a while now.And we’re getting married. The marriage will happen in the later part of 2017 sometime in the final months next year.We haven’t fixed on wedding date. We’re getting engaged shortly.My younger brother Akhil is getting married first.”

There is no tradition of female actors in Nag’s illustrious family.Chaitanya doesn’t mind breaking that tradition. “I’d love for Samantha to continue acting after our marriage. She has worked hard achieve her stardom. Unlike me she had no family empire to back her career in Telugu cinema. She is a first-generation actor in her family.Her struggle and success are far more  admirable than mine.”

I disagree with Chaitanya and point out that Samantha came to the industry with zero expectations whereas a star-son  like Chaaitanya is weighed down by audiences’ unreasonable expectations.

The young actor who started his film career with Vasu Varma’s Josh , mulls over that one. “You may be right. But I’ve made many career mistakes in the 8 years that I’ve been acting. I did films that I never should  have. I was young inexperienced and a bit reckless. I think I’ve finally come into my own Premam.”

Chaitanya watched his new film and he was happy with what he saw. “We’ve achieved what we set out to make. Audiences like me in  soft romantic roles and Premam ticks all the boxes . Now everything depends on how the audience responds to my film in relation to the other films being released this week. It is the festive season and people are  in the  mood  to see films. But this doesn’t mean they will favour my film just because I am from a distinguished family. I am now going to be judged for what  I deliver, and not where I come from.”

The clear-headed youngster admits he takes his father’s advice. “I show him all my scripts. His approval in every aspect of my life is very important.Being his son has been a huge advantage for me. Of course after the initial advantage I am on my own.No one will go to see my  film now because of my father.”

Are the two brothers close? “Akhil and I more friends than brothers. Being younger, one would expect him to seek my advice. But it’s the other way around. Akhil gives me  advice.And I gladly take it. We are all looking forward to his wedding .It would be the first marriage in our family in a long long time.”

Chaitanya’s next is a home proction produced by his father Nagarajuna to be directed by Kalyan Krishna. “It would be slightly removed from the romantic roles that audiences expect from me. But not too much of an experimentation. I think I did experimental roles too early in my career.At the moment I need to consolidate myself at the boxoffice. I hope Premam achieves that for me.”

He is promoting Premam  to the best of his abilities. “But we really can’t match Mumbai in promotions, even if we tried.”

Subhash K . Jha



It’s party-time for Telugu superstar Ramcharan Teja whose new release Rangasthalam has broken all records in Andhra Pradesh  to become the second-most successful film in that state after Baahubali of all times.

The humbled and  stunned  star Ramcharan and his legendary father  Chiranjeevi are now planning a huge celebration bash for next week which would give the  film’s team a chance to celebrate with  their fans.

All the gates of the celebratory venue would be thrown open to the fans and  distributors.

Says Ramcharan, “We want to celebrate  with all the distributors  of the film who believed  in our  dream and fans who made it possible.Because  of them I am now encouraged to attempt more  out-of-the-box films. My next film to be directed by Boyapati Srinuwould be routed  to reality. It would be a  subject very  close to the grassroots.”

News & Interviews

Sairat Director Plays Child Rapist In New Marathi Film

Subhash K . Jha



Nagraj Manjule

“Someone Has Got To Do The Dirty Job…”

The  very accomplished Marathi filmmaker Nagraj Manjule has just  made his full-fledged acting debut in the Marathi  film The Silence.

Shockingly enough, Nagraj plays a child rapist and a wife beater. He is not only shown brutally raping and  beating his wife(played by the  very accomplished Anjali Patil) his character also violates a little girl who happens to be his niece.

Now Nagraj is  flooded with hate calls from all across Maharashtra.

Says the  shy reticent media-wary director, “Did I expect this kind of a backlash? I  wouldn’t say I am surprised. Because ours is a predominantly emotional audience and it reacts  not to the performance but to the character played by the actor.”

While accepting this heinous role Nagraj was aware he would be  judged harshly. Actors like Farhan Akhtarhave gone on record to say they would be loath to play rapists and serial killers,given the rise in crimes against  children and women.

Argues Nagaraj , “That  perception of keeping away  from morally reprehensible characters  is  not  to be judged by me.Actors who say they will stay away from negative characters are right in their own way, as they are seen as role models. Me? I have a different take on  the issue of actors pre-judging their characters’ morality.Someone has  to do the dirty job in order to bring out the morally correct viewpoint in a  film. If I hadn’t  played the evil sexually discrepant  Maama(uncle) in The Silence  the  film’s strong statement  on protecting our children and women from violence would have been diluted.”

About being seen as a villain by the audience Nagraj shrugs, “Isn’t that a compliment to my skills as an actor? The very distinguished Marathi actor Nilu Phule who was a fine human being in real life, spent most of his career playing evil characters, so much so that he was perceived as an undesirable human being.And he was proud of that.”

Nagaraj sees the sexual predator in The Silence as  no ordinary  villain. “He is that evil force within us  lurking in so many middlclass homes. So often we hear of children being violated by trusted relatives. We all have  evil and positivity within  us. Which of  the two sides in our personality is given predominance is determined by  our own moral values.The uncle who rapes  the little girl in The Silence could be anyone anywhere in any home. We  need to be conscious of  his presence. One way of doing so is by putting him on screen  for all to see.”

Nagaraj sees a lot of reformist cinema such as The Silence and  Nagaraj’s own historic Sairat happening in Marathi. “I suppose historically , West Bengal and Maharashtra were at  the forefront of  the reformist movement.Samaaj sudhar is an  organic part of Marathi society and  cinema.We need to make many more films on issues such as  sexual violence and paedophilia.”
So is  this the beginning  of a parallel career  for the National award winning filmmaker?

“Not really . If you remember I’ve done bit parts and cameos earlier. I had one in my own film Fandry. But  The Silence is  my first full-length role. I’d love to explore more acting  possibilities.”

In November Manjule Nagaraj begins shooting for his  first Hindi film starring Amitabh  Bachchan.

So would he have a role in that?

“I  will see if there is a chota-mota role for me .Who wouldn’t like  to share screen space with Bachchan Saab?  But  when I am directing I’d rather not do a major role myself.I am not so skilled as  to balance out two roles as a director and an actor in the same film.  But when I am directed  by someone else I’d like to  be seen in bigger roles.The Marathi stalwart Dada  Kondke could act and direct himself in film after film. I don’t have a  multi-tasking skill.”
