When it comes to comedy entertainers or rom-coms, writer-director Maruthi's name is like a brand in Tollywood. After 'Mahanubhavudu', Maruthi is all set with upcoming directorial 'Sailaja Reddy Alludu' starring Naga Chaitanya and Anu Emmanuel. The movie is slated to hit the screens on September 13th. Promoting the movie, Maruthi recently interacted with the media and shared some things about the film. Here are the details:
Why have you chosen the same old Atha-Alludu concept for this film?
Everyone is getting mistaken that 'Sailaja Reddy Alludu' features a routine Atha-Alludu rivalry. But the movie is far different from it. It is all about how Chay finally impresses Sailaja Reddy and becomes her son-in-law. This is a feel-good family entertainer and the audience will definitely fall in love with the movie.
Does the hero have any disorder in the film?
No. No one in the movie has any disorders. In fact, I have kept such concepts aside for now. I will come back with another such film soon but maybe after a year or so.
Did you make to changes to Chay for giving a mass image?
The audience will now see a completely different Chay in this movie. Till now, Chay played very silent characters. But this film will feature an entirely new Chay who will be very active. Chay also changed his body language for this movie and performed in a subtle way.
What 'Sailaja Reddy Alludu' is all about?
The movie features a soft-hearted guy like Chay who struggles between two complicated women. One of them is his egoistic girlfriend and the other would be the girlfriend's mother. Chay was the perfect pick for the film because he actually is very simple and has a lot of patience in real life too.
Any reason behind choosing Anu Emmanuel?
After I narrated her role, Anu said that it was quite similar to her real-life character. She plays a very egoistic girl who won't comprise in anything. But as it is a film, I have increased the dosage and showed her realistically.
About Vennela Kishore’s role in the film?
He is playing a vital role in the movie. His character has been designed in a very funny way and the scenes including Vennela Kishore in the second half will be hilarious.
I signed a few projects with UV Creations, Geetha Arts and Mahesh Babu's sister Manjula. I will start writing for my upcoming films soon.
