Santosh Shobhan opens up on his upcoming film ‘Kalyanam Kamaneeyam’
Actor Santosh Shobhan is trying to carve out a niche for himself in the film industry. Though his last film Like Share And Subscribe did not perform well at the box office he is hopeful about his upcoming lineup of films including Kalyanam Kamaneeyam, Anni Manchi Sakunamule, Prem Kumar, and Sridevi Sobhan Babu.
In a candid media interaction, the actor opened up about his upcoming Sankranti release ‘Kalyanam Kamaneeyam.’ “I am filled with pure excitement! It is a special release on a special day and I just can’t wait. Kalyanam Kamaneeyam is an emotional and engaging drama. And we set out to make a film that values 'silence'. I have done louder films earlier, but this was a story that needed to be told with heart and honesty. To do justice to what we set out to do is my goal.”
He further added, “It is an interesting film in that sense because, for the longest time in Telugu cinema, we have seen love stories end in a marriage. Our film starts from there and follows the couple’s journey. As I said, these characters are honest. For instance, Shruti (played by Priya Bhavani Shankar) is a working woman and she is the breadwinner whereas Shiva is down on his luck, doing his best to find a job and fend for the house. It is a common thing in a relationship to support each other.”
The actor concluded by saying, “There are films that are aspirational, and then there are films that are relatable. Ours is the latter kind. You will relate to these people, their pain and what they are going through. And I, of all people, know very well how it feels not to find work. (laughs)”
