Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, who is quite a pro at making hard-hitting comments on Twitter, recently watched the Telugu movie ‘Andhagadu’ and heaped praise on its leading man Raj Tarun. Believe it nor not, RGV said that the film serves as strong proof of Tarun’s growth as a performer.
“I’ve seen Raj Tarun playing boy next door and funny roles. But in Andhhagadu he has shown a lot of versatility. The film has many interesting twists. What started off like a comedy entertainer ended up being a very interesting film. Generally in Hollywood movies, we see genre changing many times. Andhhagadu is such a film. I’ve never seen the kind of versatility Raj Tarun shown in Andhhagadu in recent times. I liked Andhhagadu very much. I wish the team all the very best,” he said.
Wow, these are some encouraging words indeed!. We are sure that Tarun will be pleased to know that the ‘Rangeela’ director considers him to be such a good performer.
In case you did not know, ‘Andhagadu’ is touted to be a comedy and has been directed Velligonda Srinivas. Besides Tarun, it features Heebah Patel in the lead. Moreover, veterans Ashish Vidyarthi and Rajendra Prasad play supporting roles in it.
As it so happens, Tarun has already carved a niche for himself in Tollywood thanks to releases like Kumari 21F. If ‘Andhagadu’—which hit screens today—to lives up to expectations, it could go a long way in establishing as a bankable name in the industry.
