Success, according to many industry folks, is all about hitting box office with blockbuster movies. If someone is going through a rough patch, then they will be written off without mercy. This bitter truth is revealed by maverick film maker Krishna Vamsi the other day.
‘From last 3-4 years, things are not working for me in industry. I’ve passed a toughest phase, during which thoughts like ending my life are at peaks. None dared to say me a hello even, as I’m not a happening director anymore’, Krishna Vamsi confided, with moist eyes. In a tearful revelation, he stressed that Megastar Chiranjeevi helped him recover, as always, offering him Govindudu Andarivadele without even asking the story. ‘Never in my life had I asked for an offer. But when I really need one, Megastar is there for me’
Provided with the kind of movies Krishna Vamsi made, including a fairytale romance like Ninna Pelladutha, a sentimental family drama like Murari, a patriotic social subject like Khadgam, he is someone for whom there is no alternative. Couple of flops doesn’t really affect the history he created. It is quite unfortunate that cine-biggies have looked him down and neglected his presence.
Happy thing is, KV is stubborn and he got moral support from Mega family to bounce back. Hope Govindudu Andarivadele works big time for him. ‘I’m not saying this with arrogance, but belief. GAV is going to become a memorable cinema’, he concluded, still with tears rolling in his eyes.
