The announcement by the makers of ‘Sardaar Gabbar Singh’ to release the film in Hindi (dubbed) version simultaneously on April 8 did raise many eyebrows.
Justifying the move, Pawan Kalyan, in a rare media interaction in Hyderabad on Saturday, said the film’s backdrop encouraged him to look into the request made by Eros International, which co-produced the film along with him and Sharrath Marar.
“The plot transpires at Khammam and Chhattisgarh border and when Eros came up with the idea to dub the film in Hindi, I nodded my head,” said the actor, who has also written the action-drama. Does that mean Pawan, who is a press-averse, promotes the film in North India too? “I don’t know.. I haven’t given it a thought yet,” he replied.
To the question whether he quit direction, the actor said, “I have a certain visual sense and in the process of pushing my unit to achieve it, they will get annoyed at me. I will not stop until I get what I want. Since there are chances of the unit losing patience over it, I’ve stopped direction.”
The soundtrack of ‘Sardaar Gabbar Singh’ is set for a grand launch in Hyderabad on Sunday with Chiranjeevi as the chief guest.
“Till Friday I was in a dilemma whether to go ahead with the music launch or not over security concerns raised by the cops. But Sharrath Marar’s efforts coupled with assurances from top cops ensured that we are sitting pretty. I even thank Telangana State ministers Harish Rao and KT Rama Rao for their support in this regard,” the actor informed. He further lamented that he had to give in to the trade demands for the soundtrack launch.
“The audio launch has become a trade norm and I’m unhappy that I had to bow down to the demand though I’m not in favour of such launches where security is always a concern.” On a concluding note, he appealed his fans to refrain from attending the event sans the entry passes.
