A day after director Dasari Narayana Rao’s comments on the makers of Bruce Lee set tongues wagging in the Telugu film fraternity, the film’s lead protagonist and actor Ram Charan reacted to the remarks. Shunning away from making befitting counters, Chran simply brushed off Dasari’s sharp comments.
When media asked Charan about Dasari’s comments that star hero films themselves bring festival and hence they could postpone their releases, Charan turned diplomatic and simply said, “Those words are good to hear.” “When Aagadu was releasing, we had postponed Govindudu Andarivadele following their request.
Even recent big-ticket films like Baahubali, Srimanthudu, Kick 2 have all maintained the trend by having a considerable gap between their releases. In our case, none has approached us and we’ve been maintaining that we’re arriving on Oct 16 as planned. It’s they who came in between,” pointed out Ram Charan. Charan made it clear that there was no fault of theirs in the whole issue.
Dasari earlier stated that it was unfortunate to have a big-film release (Bruce Lee) within just a week time. He said that star-studded films could postpone their releases as their arrival itself would bring a festive atmosphere. Though Dasari tried to provoke Charan, and at a time where many in Industry expecting sharp counter from Charan, he simply played it safe and kept away from the war of words.
