Telugu spoof on Kejriwal to encourage voting: Director
Upcoming Telugu comedy "Crazywala", a spoof on Arvind Kejriwal, is not a film on the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader but an effort to encourage voting in the country, says its director Mohana Prasad.
Kejriwal will be impersonated by comedian M.S. Narayana in the movie.
"I admit we have made M.S. Narayana look like Kejriwal in the promotional posters, but our intention is not to make a film on the AAP leader. Through this film, we are attempting to encourage people to vote, choose their leaders and change their own fate," Prasad told IANS.
"We have only used Kejriwal's get-up. This was just to create some curiosity and also underline some of the good ideologies of his party. But the purpose of our film is to encourage people to vote and choose a deserving leader," he said.
Prasad says he has not tried to portray Narayana as a comedian in the film.
"He is a great comedian and a good actor too. We all see him only as a comedian. I have tried to break that stereotype in this film. This is not a full-lengthy comedy. Audiences will get to see the serious side of Narayana as well," he said.
He says he had sought the permission of AAP party before he started shooting.
"We didn't want to take any chances. Therefore, I had sought the permission of the party before shooting the film. If required, I'll show the film to them before releasing in cinemas," he added.
