Mega Powerstar Ram Charan is currently working on a lavish pan-India project under the direction of Shankar. Tentatively titled RC15, the film has recently wrapped a fifteen-day schedule at Newzealand. Being bankrolled by Dil Raju, the film has Kiara Advani and Anjali as the female leads. Thaman is the music composer for this prestigious project which also has SJ Suryah, Sunil among others in key roles.
Meanwhile, in his video interview with one of the leading English web portals, Ram Charan expressed his opinion growing OTT culture. “We will lose a huge chunk of our audience if we remake the film. Audiences may not want to go to theatres to see the remake after seeing it on OTT. Perhaps the star’s charisma and star power would have drew people back to the theatres. It will not always work”. The star actor further added ” We should remove all the Pans & woods now and make it Indian cinema & Indian actors. On Wikipedia if you open it, it shouldn’t say South or Hindi etc., It should say Ram Charan, an Indian actor. & Akshay Kumar, an Indian actor. This beautiful change happens very soon”.
Talking about making remakes, Charan said”I’m not sure I’d continue doing a lot of remakes. If I did a remake, I’d probably ask the original’s producer not to release it on OTT. I might do a remake under those conditions. Otherwise, we’d all prefer to do original scripts in the future. Taking his father’s Chiranjeevi’ GodFather, Charan said”I recently released a film God Father. It’s a remake of Mohanlal’s #Lucifer. Despite being extensively watched on OTT before even beginning the remake, the remake film did fairly well. It grossed between Rs 145 and Rs 150 crores at the box office”.
After witnessing Charan’s comments on GodFather, netizens started a discussion on how much GodFather originally collected at the box office. Did the film really collect Rs 150 crore gross at the box office, is only known to Charan and the makers of GodFather.
