Interview- Director Guna Sekhar (Rudramadevi)

Wednesday,October07th,2015, 01:22 PM

Gunasekhar's passion for cinema is well-known. But little did anyone except that he will produce a huge budgeted historical film like 'Rudramadevi', which is India's first historical stereoscopic 3D film. He says that only the story of the film has driven him to invest so much on the project. In an interview, he talks about the film, why he made the film in 3D, Anushka, Allu Arjun etc. It's for the first time in Indian Cinema that a movie is being made with the historical stereoscopic 3D technology. Highly elevated upon the story of a brave woman Rudramadevi, the movie has got many polarities that makes it one of the most awaited movies.

Here's what the captain of the ship Rudramadevi- the director Guna Shekhar has to share with us about the journey he had to travel during Rudramadevi:

Q: Why specifically 3D technology for the movie? What were the barriers you had to cross for this movie?
A: It was not at all an easy task. You know, it literally takes 40 minutes to change the camera lens for every shot. We had two cameras and there were many challenges. Despite all the odds, all I wanted was the uncompromising technicality. Every detail was taken care of.


Q: What are your expectations? What might be the box office situation?
A: Analysts suggested to me to make the movie based upon Gona Gannareddy's kink. As I had an idea about what I wanted to spectrum, I never made my mind up. Rudramadevi is such a bold and brave woman from the history. I don't care if it is a lady-oriented movie. I believe Rudramadevi is such a powerful role that I would feel proud because I have made this project happen. Though it was a tough task, I made the decision to produce as well as direct for this movie. I learned a lot of things technically.


Q: Why only Anushka?
A: Maybe there was a little influence due to "Arundhati". It was Anushka that came to my mind first and I am happy that she is a part of this historical, mythological movie. It will be a big plus for her too.


Q: There are rumors that you approached Mahesh Babu and NTR for the role of Gona Ganna Reddy. How far is that true?
A: Both Mahesh and NTR are good friends of mine. We normally meet, discuss each other's projects. It was Allu Arjun who came up that he would like to do the role of Gona Ganna Reddy. I was surprised by this gesture from him even after the disaster of "Varudu". He assured to me that he was always a phone call away. I just can't express how I felt at that time. I feel so lucky he is a part of this epic movie.


Q: There are many mythologies. Why only Rudramadevi?
A: It was in my 8th Standard that I had this story of Rudramadevi in the academic syllabus. I was moved, inspired by the bravery of Rudramadevi. I always had this in mind but as everything went well now, I could finally make my dream come true.

Q: What's the reason behind repeated postponements?
A: Immediately after "Okkadu", I wanted to start "Rudramadevi". No producer came forward to do this project then. Even after the pre-production started, the producers back stepped. Then I myself produced for the movie.


Q: How did you manage to do such a big risk?
A: A person should risk in order to prove his caliber. With Choodalani Undi, we introduced DTS and then, no one encouraged. But as we risked at that time, and stood unique. Can you now imagine any theater without DTS? Through Sainikudu, we introduced DI- Digital Intermediate. Now its time that we get an updation. Its Stereoscopic 3D in Rudramadevi.


Didn't you feel it is a risk to invest so much on the movie ?
A: Someone should take the risk if we have to introduce, a new technology. When we wanted to introduce DTS with 'Choodalani Vundi', no one encouraged us. But we dared and now you can't find a theater without DTS technology. We also introduced Digital Intermediate (DI) with 'Sainikudu'. We had seen 3D films like Kuttichathan long back. But we are more updated now. Now there is digital 3D. We can convert 2D to 3D using that technology. But we shot Rudhramadevi in Stereoscopic 3D.


Q: Briefly about Rudramadevi?
A: The movie opens with the birth of Rudramadevi and closes with a celebration in her rule. History of Kaakatheeyas, Rudramadevi's reign...the movie reflects the society of Kakatheeyas in 13th century. The runtime of the movie is 2hours and 38minutes.


Q: About the course you have done in 3D? Why is stereoscopic 3D so contrast?
A: I have done a crash course in London. I got an understanding and tried to shoot in Germany based on what I have learned. I did not vaguely do this project. I have a good knowledge about this technology now. Normal 3D movies can be shot in 2D technology that is later converted into 3D. But for stereoscopic 3D, the shoot also is to be done in 3D only. Two cameras are employed in the same time and two lenses are utilized. The quality and output are so promising and hope the viewers enjoy this experiment.


Q: Impact of "Baahubali" upon Rudramadevi?
A: Rudramadevi was already on sets when Baahubali got kickstarted. But, there was not much business for our movie. But after Baahubali, the market suddenly was so boosted. As Baahubali proved the caliber of Telugu people to the world, people are now found for our movies. Hindi market for Rudramadevi has a great impact from Baahubali. Baahubali has set records as the most expensive talkie movie. Rudramadevi also promises high-technicalities and standardsGuna Shekhar ended the interview thanking all the supporters and technicians like Ilayaraja, Srikar Prasad, Neeta Lulla, Thota Tharani etc.
