Chiru’s latest is

Chiranjeevi Sarja is an actor who switches between originals and remakes. The actor’s recently released film was Rudratandava, a remake of the Tamil film, Pandiya Naadu. He followed it with Chaitanya’s Aatagara, an original subject, for which he has just completed shooting. Chiru, is yet again, set to be part of a Telugu remake Loukyam that will be made as Ramleela in Kannada. The film, which starts from April 2, is produced by Soundarya Jagadeesh and directed by Vijay Kiran, “Ramleela is sure to have all the magic of the original,” maintains Chiru adding, “According to me, for an original, you need to have imagination to emote the character while with remakes, you need to have  a reference. However, in the case of both kinds of performances, we have to give life to the characters we play onscreen. Ramleela is  considered a  remake because we have taken the main subject idea from the original and currently, our story is developed around that one-line idea by our director Vijay Kiran. We are not doing a simple cut, copy and paste. Our treatment is going to be very different.”

Vijay Kiran who has also written the screenplay of Ramleela and has roped in Amulya as the female lead and Anup Rubens as the music director. According to the director, the story revolves around a hero who believes in using certain tactics to get things done and how he deals with the family members and the people around him without any harshness or judgement. Chiranjeevi says, “Today even a serious matter should be told in an entertaining way. Ramleela will also fall into that bracket. This particular film is for all those who expect me to be part of family oriented subjects.”

With regard to Aatagara, Chiru tells us that it was more an experimental film and that he accepted it only for the story. “I wish to be an all-rounder and  want to do all kinds of roles and characters. My track record shows that I have done genres like horror, comedy, family as well as masala films. It is always easy to do films, which have a standard formula. More than the director, I always try to think out of the box with my roles,” he says.
