Venkatesh shared, “I had met Kamal Haasan a couple of months ago in Goa, and I wanted to have his opinion about choosing the right kind of subjects at this age. He advised me that I should be a little daring and asked me to choose roles that appear challenging. Kamal asked me to respect the intelligence of the audience and do films which suit me.” Venkatesh has been in the industry for the past 27 years and he is going through lean phase of late. His recent films Shadow, and Masala bombed at Box Office.
Actors Kamal Haasan and Venkatesh Daggubati share good rapport. It’s Venkatesh who reprised superstar Kamal in the Telugu remake of Eenadu (Unnaipol Oruvan). Their bond went onto become strong and they have become good friends. Buzz is that recently Venkatesh has met Kamal in Goa and Kamal has given him a piece of advice which apparently changed Venky’s thought process and working style.
