Posani Krishna calls comedy safest genre
Telugu actor-filmmaker Posani Krishna Murali, who was recently seen in Telugu action-thriller "Naayak", feels comedy is the safest genre of all and guarantees a high success rate.
"Even though audiences loved 'Naayak' for its full length commercial presentation, they also loved it for the comedy, which was an integral part of the film. Comedy is a very safe genre as it helps the audience to enjoy despite the quality of the film," Krishna told IANS.
"Not all commercial films have been successful but seldom do you see audience ignoring a full length comedy film," he said and added that the success of Telugu comedies "Sudigadu" and "Seema Shastry" proves his theory.
Murali essayed Sultan Bhai in "Naayak", which had a host of comedians, including Brahmanadam, M.S. Narayana, Jayaprakash Reddy and Raghu Babu.
Posani, also a well-known writer, has written and directed Telugu films such as "Mental Krishna" and "Operation Duryodhana".
Asked does he personally prefer comedy over other genres, he said: "I strongly believe comedy gives audience a strong reason to come to cinemas because any viewer would love to get entertained. All my films have good amount of comedy and audience have loved it".
