Director Maruthi is gearing up for the release of his new film Mahanubhavudu now. The film stars Sharwanand and Mehreen Kaur in the lead roles. Maruthi, during the promotions of the film, interacted with the media.
How do you see the failure of Babu Bangaram?
It is a mixed feeling. Now, I feel that I could have narrated the film in a much better way.
Why Sharwanand for Mahanubhavudu?
He is one actor who can pull any role with ease. He plays the role perfectly and hence I chose him for this role of a person who has OCD. Having OCD brings a lot of entertainment. People will surely enjoy the film.
How do you react to comparisons with BBM?
People will understand the difference between the two films only after watching them.
Is there any inspiration for the story?
There is no inspiration as such. I created Sharwanand role after seeing many people.
Is it a conscious decision to team up with young heroes?
No. I made a film with Venkatesh too. My story decides the hero of my film.
