Director Praveen Sri, who is the former assistant of filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, is all excited about his latest Telugu movie Kaali Charan, which also happens to be his maiden production. The Telugu political drama is slated to release this Friday (November 8). The young filmmaker says that producers are not always keen to back unusual films.
In an interview to IANS, Praveen Sri says that he decided to produce Kaali Charan on his own, when nobody came forward to invest money on it. "I pitched my film to several producers but nobody was interested because it was different from the usual type of Telugu films. They felt it wouldn't suit Telugu audiences but I decided to produce it on my own with great difficulty."
It was reported that the film Kaali Charan is loosely based on the life of late MLA Erra Satyam but Praveen has denied it. Praveen said, "It's a political drama with strong revenge element as backdrop and is not based on anybody's life. Since it is set in Mahabubnagar, which happens to be Erra Satyam's constituency, it is being speculated the film is based on his life."
The director added, "Some people had problems with the names of some characters that we had used in the film. They objected to the same when the trailer was released. I also had to cut down the violence after the censor board suggested that I make these changes for theatrical release." Continue to read more in the slideshow.
