Sundeep Kishan, one of the most sought after young actors in Telugu, teamed up with Ani Kanneganti of 'Mr.Nookayya' fame for a film titled 'Run'. This movie is a remake of Tamil super hit thriller 'Neram'. Anisha Ambrose plays the leading lady and Bobby Simha plays the villain in this movie, produced by Sudhakar Cherukuri, Ajay Sunkara and Kishore Garikipati under A.K.Entertainments banner and presented by Ramabrahmam Sunkara.
Ahead of the release of the film, Sundeep Kishan interacted with media.
Excerpts from the interview....
Boy next door
I play a boy next door character in the movie. It is a relatable character. As an actor, it is a different role to me and I gave a genuine performance. The situations he face generate humour and thrill.
He is a big plus
Bobby Simha is a good friend of mine. We thought only he would do justice to this role, when we were looking for villain. It is a character which should be menacing and also make fun at the same time. He did a fantastic job in Tamil version. When the makers approached, he agreed to play the role. He is a big plus to the film. Telugu audiences would get connected to him well.
We haven't made much changes in the movie compared to the Tamil version. Because, it is not a film based on nativity. The film is in city backdrop. Hero is a software employee and the story revolves around the problems face after losing his job. The situations generate fun and will also be thrilling. Emotion, tension and comedy are the driving elements of this movie.
Anil Sunkara is one of the persons, who I am very close to in the industry. He is my well-wisher and helped me a lot when I was struggling. Dasari garu wanted to remake this movie in Telugu initially. But when Anil garu got the rights, he called me and said we should do the film. I like 'Neram' very much and I couldn't say no to act in the remake, when Anil garu asked me.
Very talented director
Ani Kanneganti is very talented director and technically brilliant. He was the first to approach me after 'Prasthanam'. But things didn't fall into place then and I am very happy to have worked with him now. He did a fantastic job as a director. Someone's talent shouldn't be gauged based on his successes or failures.
Anisha is a very sweet girl. She is very focused and worked very hard to prove herself. It has been a good journey with her.
We are planning to release 'Oka Ammayi Thappa' by the end of April or in May. We also want to release 'Maanagaram', starring Regina and me, in Telugu. It is a different movie on the lines of 'Vedam'. It would be a proud movie for me. I am also acting in C.V.Kumar - Studio Green movie.
