RGV Can Make out a Lot from our Mistakes, Says Actor Kishore

With films like Arrambam and Haridas in Tamil and a few other Telugu and Kannada films in his popular basket, Southern actor Kishore has got a break from an unexpected camp. That of Ram Gopal Verma. According to the actor, it was an assistant director working in RGV camp who recommended his name for the Telugu film.
“I had done a Telugu film titled Dalam with his first assistant director, Jeevan Reddy. When a particular character was being discussed by RGV and his team, they thought that I fit the bill. I was called to meet up with RGV and landed up with the role,” he says.
Currently shooting for the film at Ramoji Film City, Kishore admits he is doing the film only because RGV is the director. “Look at his track record. He started with Shiva, then followed with Rangeela, Sathya, Nishabd and more. Watching his films, I felt he goes and breaks his own rules in terms of filmmaking, storytelling and perceptions of his movies. Nobody could have made a film like Nishabd and that too with an actor like Amitabh Bachchan. He has always set a benchmark. We also have a few good directors coming out of RGV camp,” he says.
According to Kishore, his role in the film is small but impactful. “The film has a Rayalaseema backdrop. Mohan Babu plays the lead and I play his elder son’s role. The character is villainous who plays the spoilt brat misusing his father’s power,” says Kishore, who also states that RGV’s portrayal of villains has a certain charm to it. “Mine was a 10-day schedule. I have completed a few days. I am learning a lot and when I approach RGV and tell him that I think a particular shot may not come out well, he says, ‘That is what I wanted’. He can a make a lot out of all our mistakes,” says Kishore.
