Tamannaah Interview about Oopiri MovieApr 13, 2016 11:57 AM
Nagarjuna and Karthi's multi-starrer movie 'Oopiri', which has been making good buzz every since the release of the trailer, is slated for a big release in Telugu and Tamil on 25th March. On the eve of the release, heroine Tamannaah interacted with the media. She spoke about her role, working with Nagarjuna and Karthi, her upcoming projects, 'Baahubali 2' etc in this interview.
I play a personal assistant to a millionaire, played by Nagarjuna, in this movie. I play a girl, who is well-educated and reserved. It is a very good role and I was very excited when the director narrated it. I am very happy to be a part of this movie.
I haven't watched the original version "The Intouchables" yet. Director made many changes to my character when compared to the original. I learnt it during the discussions when shooting for the film. I just followed what the director said.
Vamsi Paidipally took care regarding my looks in the film. I should look stylish and elegant as per the role and he took care regarding my outfits and hairdo. I look completely different in this movie.
He is superb
It is never easy to act sitting in a wheelchair without moving. Nagarjuna sir did a great job in quadriplegic role.Two assistants were appointed just to see if he was moving. He deserves applause for playing such a role.
I dubbed myself
When I was acting in this film, I felt everything so original and so I also wanted to dub myself. I felt it would be positive if I dub myself. When I told it to Vamsi, he liked the idea and encouraged me. But I dubbed only for the Telugu version. I am looking forward to dub myself for more films in the future.
'Oopiri' is my third movie with Karthi. He has matured as an actor now. Some do method actor and other spontaneous acting. But Karthi balances these two.
My part in 'Baahubali 2' is very small and I haven't started shooting for the movie yet.
After 'Oopiri', I have 'Baahubali 2' in Telugu. I am acting opposite Vijay Sethupathi in Tamil movie 'Dharma Durai'. I have also teamed up with Prabhu Deva and Sonu Sood for a Telugu, Hindi and Tamil trilingual.
