Team VC |Thursday, 12 Jan 2023 - 3:53 PM


The Megastar spoke about how he gives the director full creative freedom for the movie

Chiranjeevi has been in the industry for more than four decades and is one of the biggest names in Indian cinema. His latest film Waltair Veerayya is helmed by KS Ravindra (Bobby), a relatively new director who, albeit known for his craft, isn't as big a name as some of the others from the industry. In an interview for ‘Waltair Veerayya’ Chiranjeevi was asked about the reason for choosing to work with new directors and how he makes sure they have the creative freedom required to make their vision come true. 

Talking about new directors and how they bring fresh content to the industry, the actor said, “New directors are coming up with good stories. For example, Arjun ReddyUppenaJathi Ratnalu, and Pelli Choopulu are all directed by new directors who brought stories with good content. New directors and writers with good talent are entering the industry.”

Further, he spoke about how he makes his directors feel comfortable when directing him, “I never look at the monitor when filming. When I am in a shot, I stay put in my position until I hear the ‘OK’ from the director.  I tell them to treat me like a rookie and not as a seasoned pro. It helps them get the best possible performance from me.”

‘Waltair Veerayya’ also features Ravi Teja in a pivotal role. The movie is slated for a theatrical release on January 13.
