Mega Prince Varun Tej is an action and emotional thriller ‘Gandeevadhari Arjuna’. Sakshi Vaidya played the female lead in the film. Stylish filmmaker Praveen Sattaru has directed and it is produced by Sri Venkateswara Cine Creations. The film releasing on August 25th and the makers are busy with promotions. On this occasion, Mega Prince Varun Tej interacted with the media about the film and shared few interesting things
*I have been following Praveen Sattaru’s work from the start. There are sensibilities in his concepts and he tries to do different films. I have seen movies like Chandamama Kathalu and Garuda Vega. I gota call from him during the Ghani shoot. I didn’t ask anything about the story at that time. He said let’s make an action movie. I knew that he can handle action films well. After listening to the story, stylish action movies usually focus more on action and stylish elements and the content is minimal. But when Praveen told this story, I knew as a young actor that whatever issue he wanted to talk about was very big. Because of the busy life, no one cares about that problem. It does not affect us immediately but its effect will last for years.. I liked the main point and emotions of the story when Praveen narrated it.
*The actor rarely gets films in which he plays socially responsible roles. I’ve done comedy films like F2 and F3 but I love action film with solid emotions. I also felt it would be good to make a film that reminds us of social responsibility along with a good story. It felt like it is my responsibility tell these kind of stories with every chance I get.
*I love watching action movies. Praveen has an understanding of how to get action. That is why action sequences are so good in his movies. When it came to Gandeevadhari Arjuna, we did it without using too many rope shots and CG work. We have done a different kind of action sequences thats focused on realistic nature.
*Gandeevadhari Arjuna is a title that fits the story. A title means “Call for Help”. In this movie too, the hero is called when there is a problem. His name is Arjun. That’s why we gave this title.
*’Gandeevadhari Arjuna’ is not a spy film. I played a bodyguard role in this. Usually, when representatives of our country go to other countries for talks, they take private security there. Most of these people are working in the national defense system.
*’Gandeevadhari Arjuna’ is not giving any message and telling you to change. We re just showing what kind of problem we are facing right now. It would be good if someone changed because of it. I recently watched the movie and I loved it thoroughly.
* If someone says anything like a documentary, it sucks and feels boring. Even if it is a movie, if it is told in an entertaining way, the audience will connect. When it comes to ‘Gandeevadhari Arjuna, we have tried to narrate it as an action entertainer.
* The story of ‘Gandeevadhari Arjuna’ is a film that takes place in four days. There are good emotions along with impressive action scenes. We shot the film in London, Budapest as per the demand of the story.
* Sakshi Vaidya is a very focused person. I found it surprising , when she told three pages of dialogue in the film in a single take. She wants to achieve something and she is well prepared for that.
* In the film Matka, there will be many variations in my role. There are four shades in my character. It opens with the concept of how the game Matka started and how it changed lot of lives.
