Interview : Venu Thottempudi – My role in Ramarao on Duty is completely new to me

Ravi Teja starrer Ramarao On Duty hits theaters around the world tomorrow. On this occasion we met Venu Thottempudi, who played a key role in the film for a short interview. Here’s the transcript.

How did you become part of this movie?

After Ramachari I was busy with my family business. Although many producers approached me to make movies and I softly declined them. But Sarath Mandava approached me with the Ramarao on Duty script and even though I said I don’t want to make movies, he asked me to listen to the story once. He told me the character and it’s impressive. I immediately nodded to play the part.

Tell us more about your role?

I play CI Murali in this movie. This character is completely new to me. It is not a negative role and at the same time not quite a positive role. You’ll see it in the cinema tomorrow. My character also has a bit of comedy.

Work experience with Ravi Teja?

He’s one of the great artists I’ve worked with. He is super talented, energetic and also a straight forward person. 90% of my scenes are in combination with him.

About multi-star movies?

Multi-star movies are nothing new to me. I worked with star actors like Jagapathi Babu and Arjun in Hanuman Junction immediately after Chirunavvutho. So I don’t mind acting in multi-star movies if the script is right.

Are there any plans to make OTT debut?

I decided to return to the industry just because of OTT. Thanks to Corona, because it made me watch a lot of series and movies on OTT platforms. And I got a few chances and approved them to be in the spotlight. I love OTT series than movies.

Future projects?

I am currently starring in a movie produced by Chai Bisket production. There are also a few OTT projects in my pipeline. I will be announcing more details about them in the coming days.
