I have to behave like that – Boyapati Srinu

Boyapati Srinu is one of the few directors who could develop into a brand all by himself for the commercial films. He is always seen as eccentric maker and a man who is comfortable in his strides and doesn’t really try for new things.

More than that, he has a name for being highly serious on sets like a dictator. As his new movie, Vinaya Vidheya Rama with Ram Charan and Kiara Advani as leads is releasing on 11th January, he did say the reason behind that reputation.

“Yes, I am like a dictator and lion on my sets. I am answerable to a producer who wishes to spend certain amount and gain back a profit. If I let the budget crawl out of control, I will be losing credibility as a director who thinks about well-being of a producer.

I live for that and my movies single day costs upto Rs. 10 lakhs to 12 lakhs. That is a huge amount hanging on the team shoulders. While we behave like that on sets, I am very caring as well. I won’t let anybody question my team. This is how we have to be on sets and in real life,” said the director.
