Hanu Raghavapudi is awaiting the release of his romantic entertainer Sita Ramam featuring Dulqer Salmaan,Mrunal Thakur in the lead. He is pinning all his hopes on this film to reach the next level and team with top stars of Tollywood. Speaking to scribes,he shared his relation with NTR.
He said 'Earlier there were rumours that I was doing a project with NTR. It is true that I planned to do a film with NTR. I share good relationship with Brahmanandam. He likes me a lot and during Prayanam time I me him. Brahmanandam himself sent me to NTR after knowing that I had a story."
Hanu Raghavapudi continued ' Durign that time, NTR was staying in Mehdipatnam. I met NTR and he gave me 15 minutes time. However,he liked my story narration and listened to the story for 3-4 hours. He was a top star at that time itself and there were restrictions regarding the story. So the project did not take off"
Hanu added ' I am a diehard fan of NTR and used to watch his films first day since Aadi. He likes my stories and he talks with me in a cordial manner. At that time I narrated the LIE story to him. I did not tell LIE to NTR hoping to do it with him. Though NTR is ready to do a film with him,I am not confident whether I can handle him with his newfound stardom. I will think about it when I get the confidence. I told Andala Rakshasi first to Nani but we couldn't do it as Nani was busy with Eega. I readied a story for Nani and will team with Nani soon'
