"Ofcourse I'm very strict, I don't like and neither my unit encourages anything hanky panky, any extras when we begin to work. But it isn't true that I use obscene language, I don't address any actor as orey. But when it comes to work I expect discipline. It isn't true that I don't work with stars, didn't I work with Mahesh?
But the problem with them is that they are established actors and I have the additional burden of making them unlearn certain aspects of acting before I make them act as per my requirement. It is not about egos at all. Fresh faces come with no baggage and they assimilate matter like a sponge," says Teja.
Teja adds that he always makes films ahead of the times, he observes, "When I made Chitram and other films I made it for a generation who were young. They have now grown up, got married and have children. I am now targetting youngsters of this generation, their point of view."
