Age doesn't seem to have slowed down National Award-winning filmmaker Singeetham Srinivasa Rao. The octogenarian recently completed a Telugu film titled Welcome Obama, and now wants to do a sequel to 1991 Telugu blockbuster Aditya 369. Welcome Obama is based on surrogacy, which has hit the screens this Friday.
"The sequel to Aditya 369 is on. It's in the process. There will be a time machine concept in the sequel too, but I'm working on a different screenplay. But, it will only go on floors after Balayya (Balakrishna) is relieved of his commitments. We are expected to meet soon, sit and discuss the project," Singeetham told IANS.
Aditya 369, which featured Nandamuri Balakrishna in the lead, was a film about time travel, made much ahead of its time. The film was very well received by audiences. "I will also work on another film soon. It's too early to comment on it, but it will be an interesting project too," he added.
While several filmmakers spend months on a project, Singeetham completed Welcome Obama in 33 days. "It was a challenge. I don't like to waste too much time sitting on a film unless necessary. I completed the film in 33 days because we shot consistently and punctually for the entire shooting period," he said. (IANS) Continue to read Singeetham Srinivasa Rao interview.
