Director Ohmkar shot back to limelight in the year 2015 with Raju Gari Gadhi, a horror genre film, which became a successful film. Ohmkar is now back again with Raju Gari Gadhi 2, which he says, is not a sequel and neither is a remake of a Malayalam film as being said. Interacting with the media recently, Ohmkar, spoke about how he managed to get Samantha Ruth Prabhu onboard and how this film is different from the Malayalam film Pretham.
“I have taken the central point of the film and changed the entire script for the Telugu version. If we would have remade it scene to scene, the film might be a flop; so I changed the script entirely for the Telugu version,” Ohmkar was quoted in a report in DC.
Speaking about how he came up with the script for Raju Gari Gadhi 2, Ohmkar said, “When I approached producer Niranjan Reddy, I narrated a family story to him. But he advised me to do Raju Gari Gadhi 2. Then I came up with this subject and approached Nagarjuna for the mentalist character.”
Revealing how he managed to get Samantha Ruth Prabhu onboard, Ohmkar said, “Nagarjuna did not know that we were approaching Samantha for a role. It was the producer’s idea and then I narrated the story to her. She immediately said yes. We completely changed the story for the Telugu version so as to include Sam’s role.”
