“Power Star” Pavan Kalyan, after a considerable gap is coming With “Jalsa”. The film is on sets and going to be released soon. Pawan Kalyan says “The film we make should meet audience expectations and many more. Here is a A one on one With Pavan Kalyan.
Is there any projects you have rejected in the recent past?
I declined two offers recently as the my character and the story were not meeting my expectations.
What do you look for in your films?
I look for a good story that would entertain the audience and be commercially successful
Do you recommend your leading lady to the production houses?
No, I do not recommend heroines, but would like a good one to be cast opposite me.
How do you differentiate a good movie and a bad movie?
A movie which is a commercial failure is a bad movie as it did not meet the audience’s expectations.Nobody would spend crores to make a bad film. But, not all movies that fail are bad. Some don’t meet what the audience expect out of it.
So is it true that some movies are good, but the audience had made them flops?
Not at all. The audience is never wrong, its always the filmmaker who doesn’t deliver. We make movies to entertain them. What I meant is some movies are commercial failures, which are appreciated only by a few or might not be termed a hit because of the cost is to returns factor.
Why you are so cocooned, all the time?
I just do my thing, I don’t feel the urge to involve in somebody else’s issues. But, I don’t ignore anyone.
Tell us about Ram Charan.
I would definitely place my bets on him. He is very hard working, and doesn’t take being Chiranjeevi’s son. His behavior and personality will take him to great heights in life.
Can you say something about your fans?
They are some one, whom even I am trying to understand. I used to think, we’re making movies for money and career sake. We don’t even show them the movies for free, but why do they idolize us so much. Now, I’ve realized my bond with them was formed from the previous lives itself. We all are born to ‘kalamatalli’. If I do have a next life, I would like to be born as Pawan Kalyan again and serve my fans with what they expect from me.
People expect your “Jalsa” to become another smash hit like “kushi”.
The success of the film is not totally in our hands ….
How do you feel about Trivikram Srinivas?
The success of the film is not totally in our hands. I always used to wonder if we have technicians who would make the industry proud and cross the boundaries of the state. Trivikram Srinivas is one of them. He is a great learner, wants to know everything what’s happening.
