Actor Tamannaah Bhatia confesses that she is a huge admirer of filmmaker Karan Johar’s body of work. The Baahubali star feels that [in her view] almost everyone would wish to collaborate with him. And it goes without saying that she is also looking forward to work in one of Johar’s films.
“I think it’s every actor’s dream to be a part of his films, and I am no different. A lot of us [the current generation] have all grown up watching his films. If I get an opportunity to work with him, it’ll definitely be dream come true for me,” says Tamannaah. KJo’s production house had distributed the Hindi version of Baahubali.
Asked if a film with Karan is happening any time soon, Tamannah says, “I did meet him quite a few times. We had regular conversations but there were no talks of movies. So nothing is on the cards as of now.”
Tamannaah is on cloud nine after the success of Baahubali, and says that the movie is special because people are still talking about it. All praise for the director of the film, SS Rajamouli, the actor adds, “I have been a follower of his work since I started working in films down south. And Rajamouli sir has a 100 per cent success rate because of his storytelling style and screenplays being extremely strong. Those who have worked with him, would know what I am talking about. He is a well-planned director who knows what would appeal to the audience. Along with all of that, he is a humble man.”
Meanwhile, Tamannaah is working in filmmaker Kunal Kohli’s debut Telugu film, and will also play the role of Rani in the Telugu remake of Vikas Bahl’s Queen. Talking about the films, the actor shares that she had a wonderful time shooting the film with Kunal, and is looking forward to how the audience react to it.
About the remake of Queen, Tamannaah adds, “Ever since I had watched Queen [starring Kangana Ranaut], I felt that it should be made in other languages too because I walked out of the theatre feeling really good. With all my heart, I have strived to keep the essence of the original with Telugu nativity and flavour.”
