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
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."
