Comedian-politician Venu Madhav needs no introduction. His histrionics in SS Rajamouli’s Sye or VV Vinayak’s Dil say that all. He was once referred as next to Brahmanandam, Ali. But of late, Venu’s career is on downward spiral. He is not seen much these days.
Ask him about his sagging career Venu admits, “Before bifurcation, real estate business was happening. There was big boom which resulted in profits for several people and many of them forayed into film production. We used to have a lot of offers, roles. But that phase is passe. Bifurcation costed real estate business to the hilt. With this, the number of producers in industry have come down leading to dearth of good films.”
Venu Madhav further adds, “However, it’s also my conscious decision to act in limited number of films. I’ve become choosy. I don’t want to act in mediocre films, slapstick comedy. Recently, offensive dialogues have taken over good comedy.” He signs off.
