Sharwanand is elated that his Sankranti release ‘Express Raja’ completed 50 days run at the box-office. “It released amidst several biggies and I’m relieved that it did well. It came like a breath of fresh air. I want to do more films in commercial format henceforth and as such I’m spending more time on multiple scripts. Recently, I have green-lit Kesineni Nani’s younger brother Chinni’s project,” he says.
However, the actor, who would turn a year older on Sunday, is puzzled with his next Telugu release ‘Rajadhi Raja’ (Tamil dubbed film ‘JK Enum Nanbanin Vaazhkai’), directed by Cheran. “The film was completed long back and was released in DVD format in Tamil Nadu. I’m perplexed to see it releasing in theatres in Telugu. I have nothing to do with it,” he wonders.
Responding to the buzz that he hiked his fee, the actor clarifies, “Surprisingly, the producers of my next films are hiking my remuneration, not me. But having said that, it all boils down to market value. I have been in the industry for over a decade now and it’s all because of the kind of roles I got. Just because my previous film did well, I don’t want to put my filmmakers under risk by increasing the budget.
I clearly advise my directors to sketch roles within my market reach." Sharwaa is also keen to collaborate with top shot Puri Jagannadh. “I’d like to work with Puri. He is someone who pens quirky roles. Hopefully, he might come up with something for me soon,” points out the actor who will be ringing in his special day with besties.
