    I am interested in radical films: Gopichand

    Wednesday, September 14, 2005
    Action star Gopichand, also known as "Desi Stallone", is reluctant to cash in on his newfound stardom by signing numerous films. He would rather wait for the right script and team, though he has announced his unavailability for lover-boy roles.

    The son of radical director T. Krishna loves to do socio-centric movies. After Mohan Babu and Chiranjeevi, Gopi joins the band of baddies-turned-heroes.

    Excerpts from an interview:

    Why did you opt for a long gap after "Yagnam"?

    I couldn't accept offers because I was totally involved in "Andhrudu". And the film too got delayed in production. Our efforts have turned fruitful, however, as the film has shaped up well.

    I did receive scripts but they sounded repetitive. I just accepted "Ranam" with Baburao since it was an exciting script.

    Instead of cashing in on your newfound stardom, you seem to be very selective?

    That's true. I am in no hurry and keep to my own pace. I can take advances from producers but I dislike the practice. So I insist on a good story, a novel plot. Then I would choose a producer who can do justice to it and is capable of releasing it.

    I have become selective because, after "Yagnam", I heard umpteen stories revolving around the theme of the Rayalaseema factionalism, but I would prefer a different backdrop. I don't want to be typecast and would like to explore varied roles.

    You are keeping away from soft lover-boy roles. Is it intentional?

    Yes. It will be difficult for audiences to accept me as someone chasing a girl with a rose. I impressed as a villain and now I want to do good roles.

    After "Yagnam", you have teamed up with Pokuri Baburao for "Ranam". Will you describe it as a radical film?

    It is also a good entertainer. It is not a hard-hitting film but conveys its message in a subtle manner.

    My father made many radical films and I am also interested in associating with that genre. But you need a strong script without which it will be a wasted effort. I am yet to decide on my future projects.
