The trailer of Sekhar Kammula's Fidaa starring Varun Tej and Sai Pallavi has been creating quite a good buzz all over. The film slated for a grand release on Friday. Varun plays an NRI doctor. Varun Tej interacted with the media as part of the film's promotion. Let’s see what he has to say.
How tense are you about the film’s release?
Fidaa is a very crucial film for m at the moment. Me and all our Mega fans were disappointed with my last release Fidaa. This time, Fidaa has come out very well and the buzz about the film is quite positive.
How is it working with Sekhar Kammula?
I'm a huge fan of his style. He doesn't like to go overboard for the sake of satisfying a section of the audiences. He brings lot of realism to his work. What makes Sekhar sir distinct from the filmmakers I have worked with so far is his natural approach to filmmaking..
Has Sai Pallavi dominated you in the film?
Laughs! Yes. But to some extent. When Sekhar sir narrated the story, I felt Sai Pallavi's role will be the highlight. But Sekhar has designed my role also very strong and especially, in the second half, my role has many strong moments where I give it back to the heroine.
Tell us about Sai Pallavi's acting?
Sai Pallavi is a devoted actress. Her commitment shocked me. We shared a very healthy competition, which made working with her even more exciting. Audiences will see our competitiveness reflect on screen and it'll work in the film's favour.
About the story and climax?
I play an NRI doctor in the film and falls in love with a girl from Telangana. I connected to the story right away when Shekhar sir narrated me. The way he has treated the film's climax, which breaks the tradition of how marriage is viewed in our society, made me fall in love with the film. I could call it my ‘fidaa' moment of the film. I was moved by the climax and I'm sure audiences will love it too.
What was the reaction from your family?
Dad was used to all my scripts initially but he did not do it for Fidaa as Dil Raju garu involved. He watched the film yesterday. He was very much happy with the way the film came out. And, Chiranjeevi garu will watch the film today.
What kind of roles you want to do in future?
I am ready to do all kinds of roles. I personally want to do action films. Though I tried it with Loafer, things could not work out properly.
