Telugu director Krishna Vamsi believes he can never direct his wife Ramya Krishnan, because it would be too personal. Ramya has only acted in two of his films, Sri Anjaneyam (in a guest role) and Chandralekha, both prior to marriage.
“I can’t see her as my artiste. I get personal, so I never cast her in my films,” he told Deccan Chronicle in a recent interview. The director also lauded his wife’s performance in films. “I give credit to the director and writer for making Ramya’s character so amazing and, of course, she performed very well,” he says about her role in Baahubali.
The director is currently gearing up for the release of Nakshatram, starring Sundeep Kishan, Sai Dharam Tej, Pragya Jaiswal and Prakash Raj. Set in a city, the film is an action-thriller that focusses on the lives of policemen, besides touching upon terrorism and factionism. He believes this film will make everybody respect a policeman’s job.
“I have depicted society from a police officer’s perspective. Most of the characters are from the police department or closely related to them — the commissioner, a constable’s son who wants to become a sub-inspector, a constable’s daughter and an undercover policewoman,” he says.
Nakshtram will release on July 28.
