Katti Need Not Be Violence - Gunasekhar

Gunasekhar

Ask Gunasekhar if he is glorifying violence he says no, Katti means sharp..and there have been many instances when we refer to a person's wit and intelligent behaviour to the term..like "katti laanti kurradu". Gunasekhar also has an idea of coming up with a film with newcomers. This one with Ravi Teja will be a stylised action entertainer which he has never attempted before. Ask him about his fetish for extravagant sets, he says sternly that the subject demands such a backdrop, then they will have to ahead with the idea. It's just a coincidence that all the sets in his films have been lavish. He adds that after Choodalani Vundi, many movies came up with such similar backgrounds.

Gunasekhar's Anguish Over Snatching Off Title

Gunasekhar

Director Gunasekhar says the title Katti was registered three years back but it is unfortunate that it has been taken away by some other filmmaker. "The reason for registering a title is to ensure that none stake a claim over it, if this is the way things function then it's unfortunate," he adds. Kalyanram's film is currently called Kalyanram Kathi though the prefix hardly compensates Gunasekhar's movie title. There is a possibility of people getting confused. Katti is currently in the scripting stage. It has Ravi Teja as the hero, the heroine is yet to be decided. The movie will be launched in April as soon as Veera wraps up.

Siddharth’s film with Disney titled ‘Anaganaga Oka Dheerudu’

Actor Siddharth has been doing quite a few movies at a time. One of them is being produced by the internationally prestigious production house ‘Walt Disney’. The film is being directed K.Prakash Rao, son of K.Raghavendra Rao. It is said to be a fairy tale kind of a film with loads of visual effects and graphics. However the film is yet to be titled.
There was a talk previously in the industry that they titled the film ‘Once Upon a Tear Drop’. This was probably the working title. However a new title was registered in August by a banner owned by Prakash Rao. Prakash Rao also directed his first film ‘Bommalata’ on the same banner.
The banner is ‘A Belly full of Dreams Entertainments’ (ABODE) and the title is ‘Anaganaga Oka Dheerudu’. Please note the words ‘Once Upon…’ and ‘Anaganaga…’ – this is how any ‘fairy tale’ would start in English or Telugu. Can we assume that Siddharth’s film has been finally titled? We’ve got to wait.

Secret about Ram Charan

Ram Charan Tej – the world at his feetRam Charan Tej – the world at his feet
Like most interesting people, he holds within himself many different aspects. At once charming, elegant & then exhibiting the confidence of a Mega Power Star, Ram Charan Tej is a package of contradictions. He is at times shy, at other times disarmingly outspoken; his speech is peppered with references to philosophy, his love for cars & horses; he’s the ultimate industry insider’s outsider, an artist who could take full advantage of a high-profile star son’s career, but who has instead blazed his own trail towards his own brand of fulfillment. He’s been patient and methodical and, with the best of acting offers still coming in, he’s just about where he wants to be in life. MAA Stars had the pleasure of speaking with Mega Power Star Ram Charan Tej, where he spoke about life before & after movies, the likely comparisons between him & his dad and lots more… .
1.First up, your comments on this shoot
To be frank, I am more comfortable with film shoots rather than photo shoots. I admit I even get scared at times. But this shoot with maastars has been an amazing experience. I never realized that photos shoots can also be done so easily with such perfection. I felt very comfortable as everything was planned and organized so well. Everybody, right from the cameraman to every individual in the team, was in proper sync with each other. And the photos have come out great. It was a really amazing experience. I’ve had lots of fun.
2.From being the Megastar’s son to being the Mega Power Star in your own right…the journey… what has changed?
Nothing really has changed per se. I still feel the same. But when it comes to the fan support, I personally enjoy all those accolades showered on me. They say that one should grow step by step in his field, but it feels like I am already placed on a pedestal, way above where I deserve to be right now. I love my fans for this though I have a lot more to accomplish.
3. Obviously your dad is a role model. How was life growing up as his son?
Having a person at home who has 30 years experience in his field is definitely advantageous to an actor like me by all means. Keeping his star image aside for a moment, but the obedience he has shown towards his directors, the way he moulded himself to his Director’s needs is just amazing. The knowledge that he gained in all these years fetches me many things. I got to learn a lot from him each and every single day for the past 27 years. The attitude which an actor should carry, his behavior in the industry, I learned every bit of it from my dad. Normally many actors may take time to realize & learn all these things on their own. But luckily, I learnt everything even before I entered the industry itself!
4. How did the fact that you’re from a film family shape your sensibilities? Did it give you some sort of a direction early on in life?
Frankly speaking, I was never pushed by anyone to become an actor. I believe one should take their own path as per his/her wish in life. Otherwise we can never justify one’s purpose in life. Never did my dad try to push me into acting. After I finished college, I just went upto him and put forth my wish to act. Those were the happiest moments for my dad. He told me that he was waiting for the day his son would walk up to him to say those words for a long time. He felt elated over my interest to act. Without doubt, he has given me a very good platform and I strive to make the best use of it.
5. Did you always feel drawn to movies?
Seriously, I never thought of acting until I was 16 years old. I used to enjoy watching dad’s movies but never envisaged myself to become an actor like him on screen. But when the time came for me to think of making a career, the thought of cinema came to me for the first time.
6. What’s the best thing about being in the film world?
To me, it’s about living all those emotions. Usually, people end up frustrated because they are unable to find that outlet to vent their emotions out. An actor’s biggest advantage is that he can take all his frustrations & irritations out naturally onscreen. We get to play the navarasalu (nine emotions) in a single day. It may sound funny but it really works.
7. And the worst?
We lose our sense of comfort. Getting up at odd times, following strict instructions, the rigor & discipline an actor has to put himself through can sometime get to him. But soon, it turns itself on its head & becomes a blessing in disguise. So I am not really complaining.
8. What about fame?
Irrespective of a film’s result, you need to keep a balanced mindset. Never let fame get to you. That’s my dad’s biggest plus point. If his movie’s a flop, he plans his next project carefully. If his movie’s a hit, he still plans his next project carefully. He loves what he does. He doesn’t let fame or success get into his head. Once he finishes a movie, he’ll have a dinner with the unit and move on the next project. I have grown up in the shadow of his qualities, which I always strive to emulate. It makes me happy that my movie does well. But I never let that success get to my head and never let arrogance creep into my attitude. It will demean my success.
10. People are so judgmental about star sons. What goes through your mind when you read stuff? How do you take criticism?
I take it the same way as well. Just like how I take my hits and flops, I take criticism also on the same note. I think this is all part of the game. Along with money & fame, we have got to accept criticism also. There is a famous saying in horse riding which says “Until & unless you fall at least 7 times from your horse, you will never be recognized as a horse rider”. If I don’t possess the capability to take criticism, I can never be called a complete actor. That’s what I believe.
11. Do you find it strange that people have already started trusting you, with so few films to your credit?
I accept it with all humility. The admiration & love showered on me makes me really happy. I will try to take my skills to the next level. And I will definitely not disappoint my admirers!
12. How much of your acting do you put down to genetics and how much to the rest?
Growing up, obviously my dad is an inspiration and I have imbibed some of his traits. Even as an actor, I am inspired by him though I have consciously tried to develop a style of my own. Acting in my dad’s style of body language comes naturally to me. But I blend it with my own style. Maybe an 80% Charan, 20% Chiranjeevi! People keep saying they see a bit of my dad’s style in me, but they also say that they found my style different than that of my father’s! That’s what makes me happy.
13. Interestingly, in an interview with MAASTARS, Chiranjeevi garu has remarked that Charan is not just one or two movies old but in fact he’s 150 movies old, since he considers all his experience passed on to you. Your reaction….
Yes, my dad’s movies always keep playing in my mind. His experience is behind me, driving me, pushing me forward with greater force. Chiruta is my 149th movie and Magadheera is my father’s 149th movie.
14. What aspects do you both discuss about movies?
We talk about general issues. Cinema is the last thing on our mind then since we would have been on the sets the whole day & we just want to relax. We discuss about life, we watch DVDs together, and we play games together on a big projector in our bedroom. Our film magazines, awards etc are all limited to the office only. None of them reach our bedroom. 9am-6pm is when we are associated with films. We switch to family mode after that. And this was taught by dad a long back.
15. As an actor, are emotions easily accessible to you? Or do you have to work hard at them?
Every actor is able to some emotions easily and others not so. It’s the same with me. In such a case, I discuss with & follow my director’s instructions.
16: Are you emotional in real life?
Yes I am an emotional person in life. Because I grew up in a huge family and have seen all kind of emotions in my life journey so far.
17: Are you more of an optimist or a pessimist?
I am pretty optimistic. I believe one fact that every person is not the same. One of the best qualities in optimism is to let everybody be who they are.
18. As a son, what have you learnt from your father?
Family is always first in dad’s mind. Every Sunday, he invites all 30 members of our family home. And he spends the whole day with all of us. It’s a Sunday tradition that we follow even till today. Maybe we miss an odd Sunday here and there because of his travelling & other important commitments but invariably we are all together. He’s taught us about the importance family & about morals. It’s with him that we learnt to be together irrespective of what we have and what we don’t. If we have family, they will never let us down, their support will be with us all the time.
19. As an actor, what have you learnt from Chiranjeevi?
I feel his innocence is his biggest asset on screen. He has never played any intelligent character. He has always played characters that are close to the common man. He always retained that innocence. I am still learning that from him.
20: As a young leader in the industry, do you think you are obligated to pushing the creative boundaries of your field sufficiently?
Definitely, we are trying to push our limits more than our previous generation. Every actor should have such openness. Otherwise I would have never committed to ‘Orange’ after ‘Magadheera’. I would have opted for another big banner or director. I am interested in doing versatile roles. Orange is a sensible social movie.
21. Your comments on the ‘new wave’ of cinema hitting our industry…
It is very healthy. If you look at the recently released movies, all those so-called ‘small budget’ films like ‘Ashta Chamma’, ‘Prasthanam’, ‘Vinayakudu’. ‘Andari Bandhuvaya’ have all done well. I personally encourage the new wave of talented directors that are coming along. These people should have a better platform to showcase their talent.
22. Speaking of new, we keep hearing about this new movie called Charan Arjun…
I hope that rumor comes true one day. We are searching for a good script that would suit both Bunny & me. If any director convinces us, we are ready to jump in. We will both give our dates immediately without any second thought.
23. There is a talk that you and Jr.NTR both are good friends. Is there any possibility of doing a film with NTR and other heroes?
Definitely, the idea of working in a multi starrer has always been there in my mind. Personally I feel that there should be healthy competition in any field, not personal rivalry. Nobody is competition to you. One should understand that no two people are the same. I have my own strengths and NTR has his own. Our talents are different. Earlier there used to be a comparison between dad and Mr. Balakrishna. Again, both are different and have their individual talents. Jr NTR is a good person who always wants to work in his own space. We never carry any egos with us. We are very normal when we meet outside. I wish fans also understand this and stop creating controversies in between us. I wish fans would limit their emotions to within the boundary of cinema itself.
24. Please tell us about your new movie “Orange”..…
‘Orange’ has completed almost 70%. 30 more days shooting is left. We are trying to release it sometime in October. While working on Magadheera, I felt my next movie should be a love story. This was because I didn’t want to restrict myself to a particular image. That’s how I came about to doing “Orange”. I took the initiative first, met Bhaskar and got the movie started. I wanted to do a different kind of love story. Hope ‘Orange’ fulfills my wish. It’s a very educative movie and it’s going to be unique.
25. Bhaskar Vs Rajamouli Vs Puri Jagannadh 3 different styles. How did you cope?
It’s about blending in & delivering what the director wants. I always try to be a director’s actor. All 3 directors have got their own style of treating a movie. They are confident, talented individuals.
26. What is discussed more at home nowadays- films or politics?
We’re balancing it out nowadays. He updates me on politics and I update him on the movie front. I’ve just returned from Malaysia, so we’re catching up on the past events & happenings.
27. Any movie that when you watched as a child that made you feel, “That’s the kind of film I want to be in?
Thought professionally I do big commercial films, personally I prefer soft and emotional movies.
I like ‘Rudraveena’ a lot. I connected to that movie very well. My other favorites are ‘Abhilasha’, and of course ‘Gangleader’.
28: What kind of a child you were?
Sometimes I was a stubborn kid. But my folks knew that even I would listen to them if they fulfilled my demands or not. My mom still keeps saying that my behavior reminds her of her dad, Late Allu Ramalingayya Garu. My dad also said the same recently. Now I try to act according to their wishes only.
29. Did you do any acting in school/College?
I did not do anything specific. Although just before I joined acting, for a bird’s eye view, I went to the London School of Theater and Drama, did some courses there. I also went to the well-known Namit Kishore of Bombay.
30. Had you not been into this film industry, what would you have become?
I love cars. I admire those automobile design professionals. I planned to take up Automobile Engineering. Who knows I would have become an industrialist with my own Automobile Industry?
31. What’s the best piece of advice anyone’s ever given you?
When I was in London, an old man said “You are already a Star’s son. I have seen your efforts and work in the school. Don’t forget to take everyone along with you when you are reaching heights in your career. Do not ignore anyone when you are climbing up. Who knows, one day you may fall, and at that point of time those people will be there to catch you”. Those words made me think so much. That’s the best advice I got so far.
32. What does style mean to you?
Being comfortable in what you wear is style. No matter if it is a t-shirt worth Rs.50/- or a jacket worth Rs. 50,000/-, it all depends how comfortable we look in it. And oh yeah, be fit.
33. What does power mean to you?
Power is not controlling or dictating people. I believe power is nothing but responsibility.
34. Tell us something about your passion for horses. (in detail if possible)
I believe that every human being relates to an animal. My dad relates to Lions as his sun sign is Leo. And I connect to horses. A young horse is a majestic creature. Yet it is humble. It keeps quiet until someone tries to ride it. Very few animals exhibit such traits. And moreover, horses are completely owners’ pets. They are true companions. And that’s why I love them!
35. Now that this interview has come to an end, deliver a “Mega Power Style” punch dialogue for your fans…
Okkokkarini kaadu Sher khan. vandamandini okesari pampinchu…. (Dialogue from “Magadheera”)

Delhi Common Wealth Games 2010 Closing Ceremony Photos


















Category: 1 comments

T he little known facts of the CWG Opening Ceremony

About 1,200 moving lights, 25 stacks of speakers and about 2,700 shots of fireworks spread across the roof of the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium combined with a stage weighing 500 tonnes to create a spectacular opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games here today. The gigantic main stage, inspired by the ”mandala”, a sanskrit word for the geometric designs symbolic of the universe in Hinduism and Buddhism, which is one of the largest built for an opening and closing ceremony.
The stage was built within seven days by about 500 workers. Weighing an approximately 500 tonnes.
The stage is large enough to hold 500 people under it. The opening ceremony would have never been that spectacular had it not been for the lighting arrangements.
1,200 moving lights, 120 space cannons and 16 follow spots weighing approximately 75 tonnes was what it took to enchant the about 60,000 spectators. The 25 stacks of speakers produced 500,000 Watts of sound.
If one was impressed by the fireworks, it was because of the 2,700 shots spread over 88 locations on the roof of the stadium. The crowd had erupted in joy as the firecrackers went up in air heralding the beginning of the Games.
The entire system was supported by over 50 km of power cables that were used to provide constant power for the opening ceremony.

ICC Award 2010 Winners List (with Photos)

icketer of the Year
Sachin Tendulkar (India): I’m really excited to have won two awards (also people’s choice award). I think right from the start of the season when we won in Sri Lanka and I scored a hundred in the finals, the season took off for us. We became number one in Test rankings, something we all wanted to achieve and we’ve been able to maintain our performance in the last 10 months. Surviving so long is a challenge and I’ve taken in my stride. I continue to enjoy the game. At 20/21 the body was different from what it is now. It’s a challenge I enjoy… I’ve got to thank all my teammates and the support staff… Coach Gary Kirsten who works hard day in and day out, keeps throwing some hundreds of ball at me at nets… All this allows us to be in good spirits… My son Arjun must be thrilled with this award. His birthday was last month and daughter Sara’s is on the 12th. These will be wonderful birthday gifts for them.
Test Player of the Year
Virender Sehwag (India): It’s fantastic to win the award and take over the title from Gautam Gambhir. I try to play the best I can in Test match cricket and play the same way I do in every format of the game. I’m a huge fan of Test cricket and love to play it more than Twenty20 or ODI.
ODI Player of the Year
AB de Villiers (South Africa): I’ve really enjoyed this season. It’s a World Cup season and a World Cup is something we would love to win and we rate our chances pretty highly.
Associate Player of the Year
Ryan ten Doeschate (The Netherlands): I’m really upset that I am unable to attend tonight’s ceremony to accept my second ICC award. I feel extremely privileged to be once again recognised by the ICC and the voting academy for my performances this year.
Emerging Player of the Year
Steven Finn (England): It’s a great honour to win an award I wasn’t expecting, and, I’m very pleased and honoured to be playing Test match cricket for my country. I’ve enjoyed the last few months representing my country and I hope it continues. Next up is the Ashes and I think we’re well prepared to win the series.
Women’s Cricketer of the Year
Shelley Nitschke (Australia): This year has been fantastic and to cap the year off with winning the ICC Women’s Cricketer of the Year is brilliant. A huge part of increasing people’s following has been because of playing double-header matches with the men’s sides and to be playing T20 cricket on a global stage.
Umpire of the Year
Aleem Dar (Pakistan): I think the fact I’m still playing cricket in Pakistan makes me a good umpire. In the last four times I’ve played cricket, I scored centuries. So, I definitely think that has helped. I’m honoured to have been named the winner for the second year in a row.
T20 International Performance
Brendon McCullum (New Zealand): The Kiwi batsman, who is currently touring Bangladesh, said on hearing the news: “That score is my highest in a T20 international and on the day everything just seemed to go right for me. I feel honoured that the voting academy felt my performance was the best amongst some other extremely strong candidates for the award in the form of Mahela, Mike and Ryan.”
Note: McCullum got the award for his 116 not out off 56 balls against Australia in New Zealand.
Spirit of Cricket
New Zealand: Though Daniel Vettori couldn’t collect the award on behalf of his team due to national commitments, the Black Caps skipper said on hearing the news: “It’s great to win the award for the third time. The team I have led over the past year has without a doubt shown great sportsmanship and played the game of cricket in the right way.”
Note: The awards were given to players and officials based on their performance in the period between August 24, 2009 and August 10, 2010.
