Sanjay Rao and Pranavi Manukonda are starring in the upcoming film Slum Dog Husband. This film which started as a small film is going to be released by a big company like Reliance Entertainment. Produced by Mic Movies banner, the film is directed by dashing director Puri Jagannadh’s disciple Dr. AR Sridhar. Produced by Appireddy and Venkat Annapareddy, this film is going to release tomorrow. Brahmaji interacted with the media on this occasion.
Brahmanji revealed that he has never got to play any unique and new roles, having played various roles. However, in Slum Dog Husband he opens up playing a new role, and continues, “I play the character of a lawyer based in Old City. A character who speaks a mixture of Urdu and Telugu. I will be seen as a specialist divorce lawyer.”
Producer Appi Reddy had told him about the story and concept while shooting Mr. Pregnant. Later, the producer asked him tolisten to the director’s story, which Brahmanji liked and said ‘good’. It was then that the debutant director asked him if he would like to play the lawyers role. Initially, he also revealed that the lead actor was not confirmed, However, later he approached Sanjay, who loved the concept.
He further spoke about how while shooting for Pushpa 2, Allu Arjun aka Bunny had saw the trailer and praised it. “We rarely talk about movies at home. But I don’t give any advice about movies. What is the point of making films like everyone else? I would say choose different concepts. That is the better option,” he said adding, “Saptagiri is my best friend. In this movie, our scenes will be competitive. Saptagiri energy levels are good. The highlight is the appearance of Fish Venkat as a judge.”
The film which was initially supposed to release on July 21, is now going to hit the theaters tomorrow (July 29). Ironically, even Pawan Kalyan-Sai Dharam Tej starrer Bro has hit the theaters today. However, in a joking way, Brahmaji says, “If they don’t get tickets for Bro, they will come to our movie (he laughs). When RGV heard the story of Slum Dog Husband, he said to give the title as Kukka Mogudu. But the producers said that it would be better if they put it as Slum Dog Husband. Anil Ravipudi is the star director. There is no need for him to promote films with a knife on his neck. But he wrote the script and said let’s do that, let’s do this. He is really great. Everywhere everyone kept helping me. Pradeep, Ali, and Nagarjuna supported everyone. In this way, I feel my property is to earn everyone’s love.”
Brahmaji who enjoys social media a lot shares, “I don’t take it seriously. I try to keep a smile always. If you have wrinkles, you will not look young. If you always smile and laugh, you will look young. But now we have to talk only if we are over eighty years old. Until then, everyone is young. (he laughs)”
Meanwhile, sharing some insights about working in Pushpa 2, he says, “The second part is stronger than the first part of Pushpa. I will be seen next to Fahadh Faasil.”
On the work front, he has Guntur Kaaram, Salaar, Bhagavanth Kesari, Ooru Peru Bhairavakona, and Naga Shaurya’s next film.
