Vijay Kumar Konda says he always views his work in the perspective of a moviegoer rather than that of a director. He says that audience were not happy with homosexual jokes in his previous film Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde. So he has managed to include healthy humour in his Telugu romantic-comedy Oka Laila Kosam, which is gearing up for the release soon.
Talking to IANS, Vijay Kumar Konda said, "When you're making a film for the audience, you should see it from their perspective. Only then will you understand what's right, what's wrong and what's missing in your work. I always see my work as a moviegoer and it really helps me make better films."
Vijay Kumar Konda says that he analysed his first film Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde the same way and learnt vital lessons. He said, "My first film was a huge hit, but there were a few things I learned. I realised that not everybody was comfortable with the homosexual jokes in it. I learnt it after I watched my work as an audience.It helped me make some changes to my work, especially the humour in my films."
Akkineni Naga Chaitanya and Pooja Hegde are playing the lead roles in Oka Laila Kosam, which is slated for a September release. Talking about the film, Vijay Kumar Konda said, "The humour in Oka Laila Kosam is very healthy. It's a love story suitable for family viewing with kids too. I feel that as a director, it's very important to respect the point of view of audiences because at the end of the day, they watch a film."
