Firebrand Teja Mellows Down

Director Teja often branded as firebrand director has suddenly become diplomatic. Contrary to his nature, the director is not making wild comments on anyone.

In a recent TV interview, he said didn’t beat Kajal Aggarwal or Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas during the shoot of “Sita”.

In the past, several actors levelled allegations that he slapped on their faces when they didn’t give required expression during the filming process. Teja seems to have mellowed down in life.

The most surprising admission was that he walked out of NTR Biopic project because he felt he couldn’t do justice to the movie. The explanation he gave was lame excuse. He is clearly being diplomatic now.

Now that NTR Biopic movies bombed at the box-office, he doesn’t want to add salt to injury and irritate Balakrishna further.

People close to the developments say, Teja walked out from the project as he had huge creative differences with Nandamuri Balakrishna.

Balayya wanted to don various getups of the characters that his father NT Rama Rao portrayed in his long career to which Teja objected.

Teja wanted to explore more about NTR’s lesser-known off-screen life. This led to differences between them. But Teja is putting blame on himself for the walkout, obviously not to rub Balakrishna on the wrong side.

As they say, once you hit 50 (Teja is now in his early 50’s), you lose fire and gain more patience.

Familiar Setting, Interesting Characters

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Teja’s upcoming film SITA has interesting lead characters in a familiar setting. Contract marriage seems to be the theme with a villain modeled after Ravana.

Here Rama (Bellamkonda Srinivas) is an innocent yet a strong guy, while Sita (Kajal) is a selfish and arrogant lady.

Ravana (Sonu Sood) comes to take away SITA either hook or by crook. Teja has given away the plot of SITA in the trailer by showing key scenes and dialogues. However, ot still intrigues the viewers to know the complete story of it.

Kajal seems to have gotten an author backed role while Bellamkomda looks different from his previous films. We have to wair for the full feature to see if he has pulled it or not.

Sonu Sood is good as the bad guy and dialogues are raw and striking compared to other mainstream movies.

SITA promises to be a contemporary film with regular themes and setting.

Has Teja delivered another mass entertainer like Nene Raju Nene Mantri? We will know it on May 24. The film is bankrolled by AK Entertainments.

No Comments

Teja’s upcoming film Seetha with Kajal Agarwal playing the lead role has finally got a kick start to its promotions with the launch of teaser.

In one minute teaser of Seetha, the director gives a glimpse of the lead characters played by Bellamkonda Srinivas and Kajal Agarwal.

Seetha is a shrewd businesswoman who can go to any extent for her business sake and Rama (Srinivas) plays the innocent protector’s role.

Kajal looks stylish as the businesswoman and Srinivas’s styling is like that of a typical villager.

Teja’s films have powerful antagonists and Seetha is no different. There is Sonu Sood who make an indecent proposal to Seetha.

The film is gearing up for release on April 25. Can Bellamkonda Srinivas put an end to his flop streak and Teja continue from where had left from Nene Raju Nene Mantri?
