Chiranjeevi Garu Told Me, Where’s The Story: Bobby

While Megastar Chiranjeevi is the matinee idol for director Bobby, Mass Maharaja Ravi Teja is the one who first gave the opportunity for him to debut as a director. Bobby is fortunate to work with both of them for the most awaited movie Waltair Veerayya.

Megastar Chiranjeevi hugged and posed for photographs with Bobby when the latter recalled an incident of how the former scolded him during an event when he came twice for the photograph. Bobby also thanked Ravi Teja for encouraging him as a writer and director.

“I didn’t have the second half ready when I first approached Chiranjeevi garu to narrate the story. After listening to the first half, he told me where is the story. Though he liked his characterization and basic idea, he wanted me to work on the emotional part as well. When he gave me the task of writing the climax and villain part, I got the idea of including another hero. When I told the same to producer Naveen garu, he got excited. I readied two different versions- one with the changes proposed by Chiranjeevi garu and the other with addition of Ravi Teja’s character. He liked the second version and gave his go-ahead nod.

I was meeting Ravi Teja regularly, but I didn’t tell him about the proposal. After 6 months, after the story was locked, I told him to hear the story. He listened to the story and came on board. Thanks to my producers for believing in me. Devi who has good judgment on stories gave Veerayya the theme song on the day, I told him the story. Mohan Raja garu created great impact with no dialogues for Chiru for GodFather interval. But the interval of Waltair Veerayya will create a mass Jathara. The 8 mins episode will give you goosebumps. You will know why we are using the term Poonakalu regularly, after watching the episode.”

Bobby assured fans that Waltair Veerayya will reach all their expectations.
