Sandalwood's much anticipated film Gajakesari is all set to hit silver screen this week, May 23, 2014 across the state. The movie is also set to clash with two big movies of Tamil and Telugu - Superstar Rajinikanth starrer Kochadaiyaan and Tollywood Star family Akkineni family's Manam respectively. However Rocking Star Yash, who plays the lead role in Gajakesari says that his film is not having any threat from the big movies of other language, but it will be well received by audience.
Amidst his busy shooting schedule with his forthcoming movie Mr And Mrs Ramachari, Yash made himself free and spoke to Oneindia about his upcoming release Gajakesari. The actor is paired opposite Golden Queen Amoolya in the film, which features him in two different avatars. Gajakesari is the first combination of Yash and Amoolya, which is being produced by Jayanna and Bhogendra. It is the directorial debut of cinematographer Krishna, who had handled camera for Yash's earlier movies like Lucky, Jaanu and Drama. Talking about his experience of working with Krishna aka Kitanna, Yash said, "It was not new to me since me and Kitanna had worked in many movies earlier. I am sure he will be the maverick filmmaker in Sandalwood one day." Click on slide show to continue to read the excerpts from the interview...
Is There Any Threat From The Two Big Movies Of Other Languages?
Yash: Yes the movie is clashing, but there is no threat from either the movies. We have a set of audience in Kannada, who are awaiting the release of the film since many days.
Blessed By Kannadigas
Yash: More than competition, I am very confident on my product. I am blessed by Kannadigas without which it was not possible for me to come up with a movie like Gajakesari.
How Was Your Experience Working With Amoolya?
Yash: Amoolya is such an actress, who gets into the skin of the character. It was nice working with an actress, who have also delivered few hits in Kannada film industry.
What About The Hair Style?
Yash: To be frank that was the tough task for me. It was very hard to maintain that hair style. It was designed by a man called Alex, who is from Hyderabad.
One Day Work
Yash: Sporting that hair style was not an easy job for me. Nearly it took one day for them to design the hair style.
Does The Under Water Scene Was Demanded By The Script?
Yash: I don't want to reveal about that and it is not unnecessary used. It will be one of the attraction of Gajakesari.
What Role Does The Elephant Arjuna Have?
Yash: Elephant Arjuna plays an important role in my film. I don't want to reveal anything about his role too. Let's audience enjoy his role on-screen.
Last But Not Least
Yash: Audience have never rejected the good films in Kannada. Like my earlier films audience will be bowled over by Gajakesari too.
