Yogesh, who is known as Loose Maada among his friends and hardcore fans, has now turned into an extrovert at a function to celebrate the success of his latest film Sidlingu. Perhaps, the presence of numero uno heroine Ramya has made Yogesh to behave like Super Star
Upendra in Upendra.
In the film Upendra would tell anyone comes in his way that he would speak without filtering any thought. If Yogesh’s speech on Monday is any indication, it seems that he, who has been an introvert all these days, has transformed
himself into an extrovert.
Apart from advising a few artistes to put more effort in their next film and thanking those who had acted in Sidlingu, Yogesh has said that many people in Gandhinagar have spread rumours about him.
“They said that my father had agreed to make this film since I was emptying liquor bottles whenever I remembered Ramya. Now, the success of Sidlingu has probably shut a few mouths,’’ said Yogesh with a smile.
When asked whether there was an iota of truth in those allegations, “No, not at all,’’ said Yogesh with a mischievous smile. Did he remember Ramya before the launch of Sidlingu? “I did but I never emptied liquor bottles,’’ he said. He has also thanked Ramya for
acting in this film.
Expressing joy over the success of Sidlingu, Ramya said that Yogesh has a bright future in Sandalwood. “I am very happy with the success of this film. I think that Yogesh has established himself as an artiste with this film. It is nice to see producer Siddaraju smiling,’’ said Ramya appreciating the music director Anup Silin for providing an excellent background score for the movie.
Earlier, the unit members of Sidlingu offered pooja to the reelbox and broke a pumpkin. Usually, the unit members break a pumpkin on the penultimate
day of the shooting.
“We had forgotten to break the pumpkin on that day. So, we are doing things our own way,’’ said a member of Sidlingu team. Director Vijayaprasad had thanked producer Siddaraju for giving him an opportunity to direct Sidlingu. “Sidlingu was a long-cherished dream. I am thrilled with its success at the box office. Yogesh has acted extremely well in this film,’’ said Vijayaprasad.
Recalling how Siddaraju used to be tense during the shooting of Sidlingu, the director said, “Producer Siddaraju has the habit of waking up early and reading newspaper or the script of Sidlingu. I have seen him simply reading a telephone directory during our visit to Kerala since there weren’t any Kannada newspapers available in that state,’’ said the director with a smile. Girija Lokesh, who played the role of Rangamma in the film too appreciated Yogesh and Ramya for
their acting skills.
