Baba Bhaskar is well-known as a passionate dance choreographer and dancer. He has occasionally also dabbled in filmmaking and acting. After being seen in a number of South Indian movies across languages, Bhaskar will be seen as Kiran Abbavaram's friend in the upcoming release 'Nenu Meeku Baaga Kavalsinavaadini', which heads to theatres on September 16.
In this interview, Baba Bhaskar talks about his role in the movie, working with Kiran, his next plans and more.
I have donned a number of hats in the film industry. I have never constricted myself to only one or two roles. I have been an assistant director, too. For me, life is all about cinema. Money doesn't matter to me. I am ready to embrace even a small part in a film if it excites me.
The story of 'Nenu Meeku Baaga Kavalsinavaadini' is exciting. I have got a dance number, besides a good role opposite the hero. I have got scenes in combination with Kiran, who is such a dedicated actor. We both discussed modulations and how to enact the scenes. The film essentially belongs to the director's vision. I thank him on this occasion. I thank the producer Kodi Divya Deepthi, who is the daughter of Kodi Ramakrishna garu.
I and Kiran are super friends in the movie. I watched the movie while dubbing and the scenes between us are so nice. This is a content film that can be watched with your family.
I choreographed a song titled 'Lawyer Papa' in the movie. Dance and acting both involve emoting. I don't see much of a difference between the two.
My next film in Telugu is directed by Neelakantha garu. I am playing a nice character in it. I am doing choreography for a Tamil movie.
I have previously directed a movie. And I have readied a couple of subjects for my next directorial. Everything has to fall in place for me to take it up. My aim is to win a National Award in the Best Choreography segment.
