Naga Shaurya is on a roll. After scoring a hit earlier this year with Oohalu Gusagusalaade, the actor will soon be seen in a romantic comedy, Dikkulu Choodaku Ramayya. Directed by Trikoti, the film's storyline has already become the talk of the town — it is about a son and father falling in love with the same girl and how they manage the repercussions of this tricky relationship.
As edgy as it may sound, Naga Shaurya confesses that the decision to act in this film was a "no-brainer". "I got this offer even before Oohalu Gusagusalaade had released and since it was being produced by Sai Korrapati, I accepted the role immediately. Honestly, I want to do more edgy films which have fresh storylines and I believe that such films will help me to reach out more people," he says.
It's the second film in a row that he was working under Vaarahi Chalana Chitram banner which had produced blockbusters like Eega, Legend in the past and by his own admission, he shares a great rapport with Sai Korrapati. "He's the one who gave me my first breakthrough and given a chance, I would love to work with him over and over again," he says, as a matter-of-fact.
The actor is all praise for Trikoti. "He has great clarity about what he wants to do and I never felt that it was his first film as a director. Since the plot of the film was based on a delicate theme, we had a lot of discussion about how to handle the subject. However, Trikoti assured all of us that it'll turn out just fine," he says, adding, "More than anyone, I hope my parents will feel proud of me when they watch the film."
Dikkulu Choodaku Ramayya, jointly produced by Sai Korrapati and Rajani Korrapati under Vaarahi Chalana Chitram, is releasing on October 10, 2014.
