Sai Dharam Tej, who is currently awaiting his next release Subramanyam For Sale, says the film relates to lifestyle of engineering students, who go to study abroad. Calling the film a commercial potboiler, Tej said it will appeal to family audiences as well.
"It relates to the lifestyle of people who study engineering in India and go to the US to work. It's about their lives and how they survive. The film is also laced with family sentiments, comedy, romance and drama," he said.
The young lad from the Mega family also shared that he is consciously making an effort not to blend in to mega family since he is trying to make his own mark in order to survive in a long run.
Talking about his chemistry and ease with his second time co-star, Regina, he called her a very co-operative co-star.
"I get uneasy with intimate scenes and this usually affects the chemistry with my co-star on screen. Regina understood this very well and helped me overcome my uneasiness. We'd sit and discuss how we could do these scenes without being uncomfortable," he revealed, and said he also improved a lot on his comic timing.
The actor was all praises for his director Harish Shankar and explained how it is a learning experience working with the Gabbar Singh director.
"To even consider working with a newcomer after delivering a blockbuster like Gabbar Singh means a lot to me. It's not every day you get to work with a director who feels responsible for your growth and career," he said.
Tej believes Harish works with a "never settle" attitude. "He feels there's always room to do more when we've settled with something. Since I come from the mega family, he felt more responsible and badly wanted me to prove myself as an actor," he added.
Nearly half of Subramanyam for Sale was shot in the US, and for Tej, it was going back home after a break. "We shot Rey for 76 days here and I fell in love with this place, so revisiting it was so much fun," said Tej. Produced by Dil Raju, Subramanyam for Sale will hit the screens worldwide September 24.
