Must read

Actor Suhas, who is coming up with his next film Ambajipeta Marriage Band, which is already making enough buzz in the filmy market, speaks to The Hyderabadi media during the film’s pre-release event, sharing more insights about the film.

Suhas, the promising young actor of Telugu cinema, has been making waves with his performances in films like ‘Colour Photo’ and ‘Writer Padmabhushan’. He is now ready to entertain the audience with his upcoming film “Ambajipeta Marriage Band.” The film produced jointly by GA2 Pictures and director Venkatesh Maha’s Mahayana motion pictures, the film is coming also under the banner of Dheeraj Mogilineni Entertainment. The film is directed by Dushyanth Katikineni and stars Shivani Nagaram in female lead role. It also stars Saranya Pradeep, Nithin, Goparaju Ramana, Jagadeesh Prathap Bhandari in key roles. After completing all pre release programs, the film is releasing on February 2nd.
Speaking to the media on Tuesday, actor Suhas shared, “Writer Padmabhushan’s release in February last year received good success. We believe that this film will be successful. My son was born recently. It looks like it’s going well. We prepared for the movie ‘Ambajipeta Marriage Band’ for many days, learning to play in a band. We practiced the scenes that we wanted to connect well in the story, even shaving my head twice for it. We believed in this project for two years and worked hard. We believe and hope that two years of hard work will yield good results in the form of success. We shot in Amalapuram and Ambajipet, areas I am familiar with due to the atmosphere and the slang. I have friends there, and I visit those areas with them when I have time. Dushyanth’s story moved me. During the lockdown, we read the script many times and discussed which points were good. Believing in the story, I agreed to shave my head. Our entire team worked on the script with confidence.”
The story of the film is inspired by what the director has witnessed in his life, with the rest being a result of cinematic liberty. ‘Ambajipeta Marriage Band’ is set in 2007. The story of this movie is fun until twenty minutes before the interval, reveals Suhas, after which it intensifies.
“After watching until the interval, you will feel that the movie is well made. After that, the movie continues with an emotional tone. The films I have done so far are fun, and there is also emotion in ‘Color Photo’. But this movie runs on high emotions. When you watch the movie tomorrow, you will wonder how I managed to act so emotionally. I have known director Dushyanth since I was acting in short films. He worked as an assistant director for ‘Dear Comrade’ and ‘Uma Maheswara Ugra Roopasya’ movies. He had always said he would do a movie with me. My career as a comedian is good. I used to worry that my career would be ruined because I am not a traditional hero. He said, ‘I have always thought that once the ‘Color Photo’ movie comes out, you will be the hero with them.’ Then we immediately started on this movie.”
Color photo movie has no similarity or relation with “Ambajipeta Marriage Band, clarifies the actor.
He further shares, “Although caste is mentioned in ‘Ambajipeta Marriage Band’, the actual theme of the movie is not about caste. The main point is the barriers created by ego between people. Sharanya and I are twins in the movie, and how events on our birthdays turn our lives around is a key aspect of this story. The audience will likely connect with most of the scenes, as some may feel like they have happened in their own lives too. My excitement for this script increased during production. Now, with Shekhar Chandra’s BGM, it has reached another level. After seeing the final copy, I felt very satisfied. As the lead actor, I feel pressure during the release, especially when it’s said that I carry the film on my shoulders. It’s scary to hear that. The movie’s title includes ‘marriage band’, and though we considered different names for the town, we added ‘Ambajipeta as it sounded good. Dushyanth and Venkatesh Maha are great friends. Dushyanth liked the story and approached Venkatesh, Dheeraj, and Geetha Arts to initiate the project.”
Recalling the experience of shooting in Amalapuram, he shares, “The local people treated us with incredible warmth. They refused to let us eat in a hotel even when we offered to pay, asking if they should charge us for shooting in their village. Their love left us speechless. Allu Aravind praised ‘Ambajipeta Marriage Band’ as a good movie. When we met at the SIIMA celebrations, he appreciated my performance. His compliments made me very happy.”
Suhas is confident that all the cast members will be receivingsignificant recognition from this movie. Nitin is from Malayalam. Basically, I am shy about doing romantic scenes. Our directors often reprimand me. During this movie, when we were about to shoot a romantic scene, directors like Sandeep called Dushyanth, warning him that I might not perform well. ‘Bro, when will you start doing romantic scenes properly in your career?’ Dushyanth asked. The premiere of ‘Writer Padmabhushan’ received positive feedback. Premieres are crucial for my movies. If early viewers like it, others will book tickets and go to the theaters. For actors like me, the response to premieres is very important. ‘Writer Padmabhushan’ collected 400k in the US, marking my first US release. Now, ‘Ambajipeta Marriage Band’ is releasing in 200 locations, and we are expecting good collections. I have known producer Dheeraj for a long time. He supported ‘Color Photo’ and ‘Writer Padmabhushan’ in time by providing theaters. My parents couldn’t believe I was doing a film with Geetha Arts until they saw my name on the poster.”
Suhas is currently focusing on selecting concepts that are new and different from the types of stories that he has done before. “I prefer to be known as an actor rather than just a hero. After my role as a villain in ‘Hit 2’, I received many similar offers, but I want to continue as a hero. It seems that when I get a bit older, I’ll fit into more diverse characters. Right now, my youthful appearance limits the variety of roles I can take on,” signs off the actor.
