tell a friend

Tamil superstar Vikram made his first appearance in Telugu films with 'Chirunavvula Varamistava' in the last decade. He came to the film industry 10 years back and struggled a lot while playing different types of roles in 8 films each in Telugu and Malayalam. His Tamil film 'Sethu' got a break for him. He did not look back since then. The government granted National award for him as best actor this year for his terrific performance in Pithamagan (Siva Putrudu in Telugu).

Vikram is Hyderabad now to shoot for his latest bilingual film Anniyan (Aparichitudu in Telugu) in the direction of Shankar (jeans fame). On this eve, Vikram organized personal press meet to meet Telugu film journalists on the morning of 15th October at Taj Residency.

Wanted to quit films at one point of time
Vikram recalled his days of struggle. He expected his film 'Sethu' to get lots of critical acclaim for him. But nobody bought the rights of that film even after 67 previews. The collections were dull in the first week. A frustrated Vikram wanted to do multimedia course and planned to go to USA with the help of a friend. But the collections started increasing from the 2nd week onwards and Vikram never had to look back since then.

Will do one straight Telugu film per year
Vikram showed his keen interest in acting in straight Telugu films. He said that he is willing to act in straight Telugu films from next year onwards.

Telugu film personalities like Burugapally Sivarama Krishna, Sivaraju, Tatineni Rama Rao, Madhu, Medikonda Murali Krishna, Sivalenka Krishna Prasad. RB Chowdary, Vakada Appa Rao, VR Pratap, Subramanyam, Atluri Purnachandra Rao, Chinni Krishna etc were also present at this occasion.
