In an exclusive chat, Rajendra Prasad talks about his work in Quick Gun Murugan: "32 years in film industry..overnight none become experts. I have achieved everything from stage by stage..as a natural growth. Only after years of experience I could play the role of Raghuram, as an editor in Aa Naluguru. One has to plan a career and use it in a right way and we should work hard to make the characters successful.
This film is a promotion to me, I will be reaching out to a larger audience. Cinema has moulded me, more so characters have given me a chance to prove myself. I have become an entertaining hero because my characters were close to reality. There is no end to learning in this field. My comedy here was totally different from what I have done in Andhra.
Quick Gun Murugan is a Tamil superman/superboy character who advocates vegetarianism, it's an epic battle to preserve health in the time of global warming. August 28th is the day it releases everywhere except Andhra Pradesh. A Telugu guy, doing a Tamil character in an English film with Bengali director, Tulu writer, Marathi make-up manů.it became possible with this film.
I feel proud and am thankful to god..we've been seeing superman from all over the world but none from India. I will be the first person to play this character. QGM's attitude matches with Rajendra Prasad's character that is one why I enjoyed the role."
About Ladies Tailor sequel? "I too heard about it, but have no info. All the jokes you see in Telugu cinema have been a recycled stuff of what I had done earlier."
"Fox has already announced the sequel The Good, the Bad and the Idly. Gunwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Dus Ka Dum, dosa record, there are many promotional activities I need to involve in as Quick Gun Murugan. I have signed five films, details will come out soon. All the roles have been different from one another. From now onwards I will do films regularly, the ones which each of you all will remember."
