This is the general question that comes to mind when people watch promos being aired about senior director K Raghavendra Rao’s breaking of silence. Celebrating his 50 years of cinema career, KRR is now hosting a show ‘Soundaryalahari’ to share his experiences and thoughts. Why all this now?
Fact is that many media houses are running after K Raghavendra Rao from years to give at least a 5 minute interview. Even to promote his films, KRR never opens his mouth and he got a reason to support his decision. ‘Before release of a film we have to say all positive things about the flick. What if the film fails? Audience might think that I’ve lied’, he said, explaining reasons for his silence. However, KRR justified his opening of mouth at the moment.
‘Among the recent generation of directors, I share thoughts and spend time with many stars including Rajamouli, Puri Jagan, Sreenu Vytla and many more including Maruthi. All of them requested me to write a book at least to share my experiences, techniques, and guidance. That made me do this program and break my 50 years of silence’, Raghavendra Rao said in a bold tone.
Probably we have to thank our entire star directors for making the legend speak on a TV channel, such that his words will go recorded forever.
