Naga Vamsi, the producer behind Mahesh Babu’s latest film, Guntur Kaaram, expressed his frustration during a press conference in Hyderabad when confronted about the movie’s unfavorable reviews.
Vamsi suggested that certain individuals may have a predetermined ‘agenda’ against his film, emphasizing that these reviews held no significance for him.
Addressing the gathered media, Vamsi asserted, “I want to make it clear that your intellectual opinions haven’t impacted us or affected our box office collections. Reviews are subjective, representing only one person’s viewpoint, and they don’t necessarily mirror the audience’s preferences. If you can critique my films, I reserve the right to challenge your reviews. None of you are Gods, and your critiques carry no weight when the film is performing well.”
While Guntur Kaaram received mixed reviews, Mahesh Babu’s stellar performance in the movie garnered widespread acclaim. When asked about Babu’s contribution, Vamsi sarcastically remarked, “Mahesh is an exceptional actor. He looked impressive, danced gracefully, but who orchestrated it all? Credit should be given to Trivikram for that, right? The film is a collaborative effort, and both the hero on-screen and the unseen director deserve acknowledgment.”
Released on January 12, Guntur Kaaram, featuring Mahesh Babu and Sreeleela, marks the third collaboration between Babu and director Trivikram Srinivas after Khaleja and Athadu. Despite mixed reviews, the film has surpassed the Rs 200 crore mark worldwide at the box office.
Following Guntur Kaaram, Mahesh Babu is set to join forces with director SS Rajamouli for SSMB29. This project, tentatively titled, is Rajamouli’s next venture after RRR.
Reports suggest that Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone is under consideration for the lead role in this adventure thriller set against the backdrop of Africa. Rajamouli has promised a grand cinematic experience with cutting-edge technology, positioning the film as a pan-India spectacle.
