Excerpts from the interview...
Biggest asset of it
When I decided to act in a Telugu film after a long time, I wanted to make a romantic entertainer. Then I thought that the remake of 'Aashiqui 2' is a better option. It is a huge hit in Bollywood and the music is the biggest asset of it. Love stories like this have not come in Telugu in the recent past. So we decided to do it.
They are inevitable
Comparisons are inevitable when making a remake film. It is a film with an intense love story, drama and a great performance. Telugu audiences will see a very different film with a different subject. Such intense love stories are very rare in Telugu.
It will be a surprise
We have used the original sound track and the content is not changed. But we have made changes and enhanced the performances, so as to suit the Telugu nativity. Especially, the climax will be a surprise to the audiences and they have to watch it onscreen.
He has done an excellent job
The music is the asset of the original film and it is cult. We don't have to change it and disturb the subject. So we sustained the music and instead we have added some beautiful words to it. Chandrabose has done a great job with the lyrics.
She is very apt
We have considered big names like Tamannaah at first for the lead actress role. But then after, we thought a fresh and innocent face would be apt for the role, as audiences know the strengths and weakness of big actresses. Naziya Hussain has given an extraordinary performance, though this is her first Telugu film.
Great journey with him
Director Jaya Ravindra's name was suggested by Bandla Ganesh. I love his previous film, 'Bumper Offer' and he has done a fantastic job for this film. The way he captured the emotions is superb. I know Bandla Ganesh for a long time and he is a good friend of mine. It is a great journey with him and he has not compromised anywhere regarding the production values.
I am going to do a horror film and it is an out of box subject. I am really excited about it. I have some other projects in pipeline and I will reveal the details shortly.
I am going to start a production house named, 'Think-tank'. It will be completely online and we will encourage new talent through this.
Sachin Joshi said that though 'Nee Jathaga Nenundali' is a remake, audiences will sure love it. He said that the music and lyrics by Chandrabose will the major highlights of this film.
