Pawan Kalyan is no doubt multi-facted personality. Besides donning grease paint for his films, Kalyan often involves in the making of his films as well. And it’s a known fact by now. He sings a song if he likes to, or he directs stunts or composes dances as he’s master at them and soon he’s going to venture into film production too. And he’s a director and screen writer too where he worked for his film Johnny and Gudumba Shankar. The fact is that he and his films can’t be seen separately. And it’s once again proved with his recent film Atharintiki Daredhi. Here’s the inside thing about the film which revealed by none other than Trivikram himself. Pawan has sent Trivikram out as he was not okaying the scene. Pawan had sent Trivikram out and directed on himself.
He shared, ‘After narrating the story to Pawan, his immediate question was who will play the Athar role. I said it’d be Nadhiya. Pawan had given his nod immediately. We have roped in her two years before we start the shooting of the film. By then, she had done only a Tamil film and Nadhiya hadn’t signed even Mirchi. I told the whole story to her over phone and she said okay and I said that I’ll ask her dates once our schedule is planned.’
Writer-director recalled, ‘As soon as Pawan saw Nadhiya on sets, Pawan said our choice was perfect. But while shooting scenes with Nadhiya, I used to laugh out loud due to her dialogue delivery. Since she wasn’t perfect in Telugu, I’d used to laugh whenever she tried to mouth dialogue. Nadhiya complained to Pawan garu that she can’t do the scene if Trivikram is there on sets. Then Pawan took over the charge and sent me out and he directed the whole scene. I came after a while and saw the output and said okay.’
