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."
