Actor Krishnam Raju needs no introduction in the World of Telugu Cinema. Popularly known as Rebel Star for his fiery dialogue delivery and power packed performances, Krishnam Raju made his mark in Tollywood with many such memorable films. On account of his birthday, here is an exclusive chit chat with the talented actor:

Hello Krishnam Raju garu, wishing you a very happy birthday! We wish you have a brilliant year ahead...
Thanks a lot!

Are you working on any film projects currently?
Yes, I am working on ‘Okka Adugu’ which is due for release this year. The film is based on the fact that anything begins with one step and lakhs of steps follow it later. Being a person who believes the same philosophy in life as well, I am happy to be making this project with Prabhas.

Can we expect films from your home banner this year?
Absolutely. Many films would be arriving from our home banner ‘Gopikrishna Films’.

When is Prabhas getting married? He is the most eligible bachelor now...
(Smiles) Yes ofcourse! But, right time has to come...isn't? However, it will be in 2015...pakka! Baahubali release and his wedding will be in the same year.

So, have you started looking for prospective matches for him?
Not really! Why so early? I don't think it is a difficult task especially for my son Prabhas. Any girl would like him and I can proudly say this.

S.S Rajamouli usually takes nearly two years for making a film. Do you think Prabhas is wasting long duration of time focusing on a single project like Baahubali?
First things first, Baahubali is a prestigious project and I personally never felt it is a waste of time. It is not easy to get international recognition through your work and I am extremely happy Prabhas is getting it with this. I have great trust in S.S Rajamouli as a director because he is a man of commitment. And Prabhas is a dedicated actor. So, their combination would yield great result. More than the duration of time, the end result is what matters the most. The film industry would be immensely proud of the film.

What are your future plans apart from showbiz world?
I would be more active in politics from now on.

Any interesting film project you have in mind?
I would make my dream project Bhakta Kannappa remake with Prabhas as the hero. Prabhas never did a devotional film before and it would be brilliant to cast him in such role.

Thank you sir. We wish you all the best in your future endeavors!
Thank You..
