Tamannaah’s next release will be Endukante Premanta in which she stars opposite actor Ram. “It’s a love story as well as a family entertainer. We travelled to quite a few places while shooting and it’s an exciting film. People are expecting a lot from Ram, director Karunakaran and me,” says the actress.
About her co-star, Tamannaah says, “Ram is good friend, working with him was fun and energetic. He is very humorous and at the same time, very passionate about his work. It’s nice to be around someone like that.” She adds, “Working with director Karunakaran was also amazing. He says ‘thank you’ after every shot, which is very encouraging and motivates one to work harder. I have never seen anyone else doing that in my life.”
The actress is being called a lucky mascot for those going through a rough patch, since the movies she’s been part of have been faring well at the box office. She responds, “I am flattered by the compliment, but I think people are just being kind. I think I have been lucky to have worked in movies that went on to become hits.”
Tamannaah is excited about her B-town comeback film, where she will be playing Sridevi’s role in the remake of Himmatwala. “I am looking forward to the film. I will be starring opposite Ajay Devgn I’m very excited to be doing Sridevi’s role. It’s a huge responsibility since it was one of her first Hindi films. She’s been an inspiration to me, so I’m looking forward to meeting her and hopefully, getting some tips as well,” she says, adding, “I don’t see this as a comeback film because I never did a proper Hindi film, so this is a new beginning for me.” She also denies the reports that she has signed a movie opposite Ranbir Kapoor.
She has also simultaneously been working opposite Prabhas in the Telugu film Rebel, which is nearly complete. Next, she will work in the Pawan Kalyan starrer Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu, directed by Puri Jagannadh. When she is not shooting, Tamannaah likes to read, watch films, and spend time with her T-town friends: Kajal, Ram, Ram Charan, Samantha, Bunny, Rana, Shruti and Nayantara. “We hang out and laugh at all the rumours about us,” she chuckles.
