Gearing up for the release of Jai Lava Kusa, actor Jr. NTR has told a leading Telugu television channel, about how his life and career changed post the arrival of his son in his life. “I’ve reached a stage in my career where I’ll only take up projects that excite me more than being with my son and family. Only when I get something so exciting, will I even feel like leaving home and stepping out and working,” he said.
Explaining how his life has changed after the entry of his son Abhay Ram, he said, “When my son was born, I walked into the room and tried to prove to him that I’m his father. Even without knowing who I was, he was genuinely smiling at me. I realised that moment that my son wanted me to become as genuine as him. In that room, it didn’t matter to him whether I was a star or Jr. NTR. It was a wake-up call for me. Since then, I seek genuinity in the work I do and in the characters I play. When you genuinely work towards something, irrespective of the result, you don’t feel guilty.”
In Jai Lava Kusa, slated for release on September 21, NTR will be seen playing triple roles. Directed by Bobby, the film also stars Raashi Khanna and Nivetha Thomas as the leading ladies. Bollywood actor Ronit Roy plays the antagonist and the project also marks his Telugu debut.
