In between scoring industry hits at very young age with ‘Aadi’ and ‘Simhadri’, and reviving his career with ‘Temper’, NTR Jr went through a terrible phase. Neither mass entertainers nor his experimental films worked at box office during that period. The ‘Jai Lava Kusa’ has recently opened up about that stagnant phase in an interview and poured his heart out.
‘I saw big hits like ‘Student No.1’, ‘Aadi’ and ‘Simhadri’ at very young age. I was only 22 when ‘Simhadri’ happened. No one can handle such a big hit at such young age. I don’t say that success went to my head but I somehow missed the right direction. I knew that my career was sinking with each failure but I couldn’t do anything.
Everyone told me that I shouldn’t have done that kind of film but no one suggested me about what kind of film I should do at that time. When mass films didn’t work, I did a film like ‘Rakhi’, which received appreciation but it couldn’t make my producer happy. With each failure, I wasn’t sure of what kind of film to do next until the day I made the right decision of choosing ‘Temper’,’ Tarak said.
He has a crazy project with Trivikram lined up next.
