Both NTR and director Koratala Siva are friends since long, right from the time Koratala worked for NTR’s ‘Brindavanam’ as a writer. Did NTR force the director to work with him? Koratala says, ‘No’. ‘Janatha Garage’ story was told to NTR when he was doing ‘Rabhasa’.
The director also added, “NTR is a star. One phone call from NTR is enough for me to be ready to do a film with him”. Koratala says that he was afraid to do a film with NTR as there is always a danger of relationships tumbling down depending upon the result of a movie.
Koratala absolutely has no problem regarding the comparisons that are being brought between ‘Janatha Garage’ and ‘Simhadri’. He feels that there is nothing wrong when fans expect a successful film from their star. He is also confident that the story revealed in the trailer of the film will make audiences to come to theatres.
