Director Santosh Srinivas is a bundle of joy after working with Junior Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao (NTR) in upcoming Telugu action-drama Rabhasa. He says he thoroughly enjoyed directing the actor, who is one of top stars in the South Indian film industry.
In an interview to IANS, Santosh Srinivas revealed his excitement over directing young tiger Jr NTR. The elated director said, "It was so much fun directing him (Jr. NTR). He always wants to be treated like an actor and seldom like a star. He arrived on sets before everybody else and kept himself ready for a shot even before I called for him."
Santosh Srinivas is overwhelmed by the support and co-operation that he got from Jr NTR. He said, "Although there was pressure of directing him initially, but he made sure that I was at ease at all times. Even when I was down with jaundice for a while, he ensured that the team went ahead and completed shooting for the songs."
Santosh Srinivas promises that Rabhasa will be high on entertainment. The director said, "I cater to the masses with my films. With inputs from Jr. NTR, we've made 'Rabhasa' into a highly entertaining commercial film. Comedy sequences between him and Brahmanandam will leave the audiences in splits."
The director added, "It's not easy to make a commercial entertainer because you need to keep in mind so many elements. If you have good action and don't complement it with an emotional story, it's unlikely you're film will work with the audience." Continue to slide to see pictures of Santosh and NTR on Rabhasa set.
