Most People Don’t Know My Name Yet
Actor Sree Vishnu is humble, modest and down-to-earth. The actor who recently tasted success with Appatlo Okadundevadu is now on a roll. Ahead of the release of his next film Maa Abbayi that’s releasing on Mar 17th, we get talking to Vishnu.
It’s based on a real-incident that happened few years ago in Hyderabad. The plot isn’t new. But the screenplay is novel. We made sure the treatment is fresh, different. This is the highest-budget film in my career so far. It has good span. Even I was skeptical about putting so much money on me. But the producer is so much confident on the film and so we. The film has come up really well.
I’ll be seen as confident youth in the film. As title suggests, it appeals to family audiences. The sister-brother sentiment stands out. There’s action element as well but it’s part of the story.
We had started the film with a passion to tell a different story. Seriously we didn’t had business goal in our mind when we started it and we made the film with love. But we were so confident about people receiving new, different films provided they’re well-made. And the result of Appatlo Okadundevadu was beyond our expectation. It’s successful. But had we released in better time and had we got good number of theatres, definitely we’d have got better result.
Until Appatlo Okadundevadu, in fact, even today most of the people don’t know my name yet. Many call me ‘Railway Raju’. Before Appatlo Okadundevadu too, I was called ‘Royal Raju’ that again was my name in my debut Prema Ishq Kaadhal. I’m so happy to be identified with the characters I play on screen. This means that I’m successful as an actor. In fact, I want audiences to notice me with my onscreen names only.
On Hiking Remuneration:
I had agreed this film even before the release of Appatlo Okadundevadu. So, certainly I haven’t hiked my remuneration.
Seriously, I wasn’t comfortable while doing the romantic scenes. It was really tough. (laughs)
Yes, Rohith and I share great bond. But we talk mostly about films and nothing more. And no, we haven’t finalised yet about his Rohith’s special role in my ongoing film ‘Needi Naadi Oke Kadha’. We had thought to have Rohith but somehow we couldn’t do it in the previous schedule and we need to decide it before the next schedule.
Apart from this, I’m doing ‘Mental Madhilo’ and it’ll be interesting story.
