On the occasion of his new film Super's release, he spoke at length about his career spanning two decades and his personal life. Excerpts from a long chitchat with the style icon.When did you feel that you have arrived?Definitely after Geetanjali. Though I had hits before that like Majnu and Collector Gaari Abbayi, it is Geetanjali that brought me new fans and I came out from my father�s shadow with that. And Shiva firmed up my position.You have achieved stardom very fast. Did you ever feel that the stardom encroached your privacy?Being a star it has disadvantages too. But when you weigh advantages with disadvantages, this lack of privacy is a petty thing. You have to sacrifice such things for it. As far as I am concerned, I can enjoy like any person in Hyderabad. I do go to movies in Prasads like you people do and visit friends� homes without any fuss here.What are the other disadvantages being a star?You will always be in the public eye when you are star. Every step is closely being watched. When you make a mistake, the media will rip you off. So one has to take care not to err and make mistakes. But again, as I said, being a star is great feeling. All these sacrifices are the price that you have to pay for being the star.Any depressed moments?No. I too went through spate of flops in my career at one time particularly after Shiva but I never felt depressed. Failures have made me realize how bad films that I had done and learnt from the mistakes.Which are the best films you feel in your career?My all time favorite is Shiva � for everything. And for Annamayya because I liked the film as an audience more than anything else.In your career spanning two decades there were also very bad films. In retrospect, which do you rate the worst films that you have done?Yes there are many bad films but I dont want to name them. I always wonder people still like me even after the duds that I have delivered, especially when I think of some of the bad movies I have done, I feel I am blessed one to stay for this long. Sometimes my kids say watching those films,You are the only star who strictly not works on Sundays. What is the reason behind this decision?I believe acting is not the be all and end all of life. I have a life apart from the movies. Thats why I take Sundays off.  After my shoot finishes, I immediately head off to my home and enjoy quality time with my family. I also go to Maldives regularly for scuba diving.What is the secret behind your fitness?I lead a healthy life. I have been swimming regularly and also practicing yoga these days. Speaking of swimming and scuba diving, it was during my honeymoon in Hawaii that Amala and I signed up for the introductory course of scuba diving there. We were hooked and returned the next day for the beginners' course and the next year for the advanced course. Since then I every year we head for there and do scuba diving. And I regularly do swimming to keep my body fit. Yoga has changed my life recently. It has brought in lot of healthy changes in me.It seems you have become mellowed over the years!I have always been gentle and calm person. But I have matured over the years. As the age grow, you tend to look everything right perspective. And you handle the situations maturely. Probably that is the reason behind my recent successes as producer, I have of late been handling maturely with the buyers, technicians and et al. I know what I want and how to handle it smoothly.There is also talk that you hardly take risks for films?That is misconception. I am hardworking actor like any other top star. I hard work till the shoot ends for the day. Unlike others, I don�t involve much after the shoot finishes. Probably my calm nature makes people believe I am very cool and thanda about everything.Who are your favorite actors?Amitabh Bacchan and Sridevi.

"I AM" is about you,me and everyone April 25, 2011 16:39

In today’s era of more and more realistic movies coming up, that revolves around the confusions, dilemmas  and  painful journey of a common man, “I am” is one such film, where after watching it, every audience will relate themselves, with the situations/roles in the film. The flick, released on 22nd April, directed by Onir, who earlier directed movies like Bas Ek Pal, My Brother Nikhil and so on… The Starcast includes Big names like Juhi Chawla, Manisha Koirala, Nandita Das, Rahul Bose, Sanjay Suri, Purab Kohli…. “I am” is produced by Onir & Sanjay Suri and Juhi Chawla, Jay Mehta, Sangita Modi and Anish Modi are the associate producers of the film… Andhra wishesh team happened to meet Juhi Chawla, one of the star cast & associate producer of “I am”… To know what Juhi talks about “I am” and her perspective on “Today’s Women”, read more… AW: You are one of the producers of “I am”, you are also acting in the film. Both put together, from which perspective you are seeing “I am” as. Juhi: Well, this is the toughest question that anyone could even think about. “I am” is one such film in which every actor want to work, so did I. I did not even have a second thought on accepting the film when Onir approached with the script. As far as producing the film is concerned, show me One commercial film maker, who would be interested in producing the film where there is no guaranteed returns for your investment? But my belief in the script and on the Director Onir, made me produce “I am”. AW: So what is “I am”? Juhi: “I am” is about you, me and everyone today. In our so called happy lives that we are leading today, everyone has got a darker side. We in “I am” are trying to talk about that “darker side”. AW: So, can we assume “I am” to be a message – oriented film? Juhi: We are not here to give messages or change people through our film. But yes, after watching “I am”, we want everyone atleast to think about all those aspects in their lives, that otherwise, we try to hide even from our family. AW: We hear some Big names in the starcast. How's it working with your co – actors? Juhi: Oh, it has been a wonderful experience. “I am” revolves around four different stories. Every character in all these four stories is common, but at one stage or the other each one has gone through many unimaginable situations. I am sure while watching the film every spectator would be shocked while certain scenes come up, and yet would definitely not feel odd. AW: How was the experience working with Sanjay Suri? Juhi: He is a sweet – heart. He is very much passionate about films. The one common thought of making a sensible movie associated us. AW: Being a Woman, what is your perspective about “Today’s Women”? Juhi: Today’s Women is a go – getter, multi – tasker, confident and smart. On the contrary, we, women are facing many awkward situations, sexual abuses, harassments from our colleagues, family members, at one point of time or the other in our daily lives. I personally feel development and negativity both are running parallel in women life today. AW: Finally, what is Juhi? Juhi: “I am” an Actress, a Film Maker, a Mother, a Wife, a counselor, and yes “I am” a Women.

Nithya Menon inspired by Magadheera April 14, 2011 15:00

Dressed in a simple off-white cotton Anarkali, shorn of make-up the very cute-looking Nithya Menon sits silently and waits for the audio release function of Ala Modalaindi to begin. One just cannot take their gaze off from her lovely curls and kohl-lined eyes. The Malayalam beauty's career happened by chance and not choice, she made her debut when she was just eight years old in an English film and Malayalam movie when she was seventeen. Even now she says her dream is to come up with a wildlife reserve or get into full-time photography. A graduate of journalism from Manipal University Nithya Menon says she had worked with many women directors, Nandini Reddy not withstanding. All of them had been brilliant, intelligent and sensitive and though she loved this current script she did it for emotional reasons. The director is her best friend. Nithya has sung two songs for this Telugu movie and even dubbed for it. She is modest and says that she didn't have to try too hard for it because she believes that singing, dancing, or acting et al skills are inborn. Her parents are okay with her doing films but her extended family is not too happy. Her granny wants her to marry and have a child. She says, "We are normal middle class conservative family and their attitude towards films is not right." She maintains that each film she had worked in is handpicked and she's proud of it, her criteria is to ensure working in projects that her parents are not embarrassed watching it. Has she seen any telugu film? Yes she has, her first Telugu film is Magadheera which she watched with her co-stars on the first day. She adds, "I enjoy watching such stuff but I don't see myself doing mass films where the heroine has nothing to do except looking good, glamorous because I can act. There are a lot of other people who cannot act and they can do those things." The plain-speaking actress says she doesn't watch too many films or idolize anyone. Simple, because movies are not her passion and she has no dreams related to it.
