Krishna Chaitanya-directed the movie Chal Mohan Ranga, which is all set to hit theatres on this April, happens to be Nithiin’s 25th movie also.
Speaking at the pre-release event on 25 March, Sunday in Hyderabad, Nithiin open up about his movie Chal Mohan Ranga and said the movie is not special because it happens to be his 25th movie but this one is special as Chal Mohan Ranga is produced by his mentor Pawan Kalyan.
“25 is just a number. Chal Mohan Ranga is special because it’s produced by Pawan Kalyan along with my father and director Trivikram. It’s been 16 years since I started acting and this journey has been a roller-coaster ride. It was Pawan Kalyan’s Tholiprema which inspired me to become an actor. I consider myself extremely lucky to have worked in a film produced by Pawan Kalyan. All I ever wanted in life was to meet him once and spend some time with him. To realize I have acted in his production means the world to me,” Nithiin said.
On this occasion, Nithiin thanked all his directors and producers for giving him the opportunity to proved his worth, till now since he marked his acting debut. “I need to thank director Teja for launching me in Jayam. I didn’t know anything about acting. He believed in me and taught me everything. I also have to thank my parents for encouraging me to get into films when I expressed my interest.”
Nithiin and Krishna Chaitanya go back a long way. Talking about the experience of working with Chaitanya, Nithiin said: “He’s been my friend for many years. With other directors, I’d always hesitate to discuss a few things because I’m not usually very close with them. Krishna and I even fought on a few occasion over things because of the bond we share. We’re really close. I want this film to succeed so that it brings him laurels.”
Nithiin also requested Pawan Kalyan to not bid adieu to acting as now the power star is very serious for his political career. “As your fan, I request you to not stop doing films. As much as we want you to succeed in the path you choose, we want you to continue doing films. Even if you do one film in five years, we’ll wait patiently. But please assure us that you’ll continue doing films whenever time permits.”
When it was Pawan Kalyan’s turn to speak, he said he usually avoid to grace the film event as for him it is difficult to speak on such situation and occasions. “I came today because of Nithiin. I know the pain of making it on your own in this industry. He’s someone who has made it on his own without any major support. When I was going through a bad phase with back to back failures in my career, Nithiin’s father invited me to be chief guest at the audio launch of their film Ishq. I could sense the love in their invitation and I saw it as a good sentiment. We’ve maintained very good relationship since then and it’s wonderful to collaborate with them today for a project.”
Megha Akash plays the leading lady in Chal Mohan Ranga and this is second time she pair-up with the actor Nithiin after Lie, in 2017. “It’s an honour to be associated with Pawan Kalyan sir and Trivikram sir via this project. I thoroughly enjoyed being part of this project. The entire team was like a family.”
Director Krishna Chaitanya, who is also a popular lyricist, it is very special for him that he helmed a movie under Pawan Kalyan’s production. “It feels so surreal to have worked in his production. I need to thank him and Nithiin for having their faith in me.”
Chal Mohan Ranga also stars Lissy, who is making a comeback to Tollywood after a hiatus gap of ten years.
The rest of the cast includes Rao Ramesh, Naresh, Sanjay Swaroop and Prabhas Sreenu.
