Industry lo valla journey gurinchi ‘ The Hindu ‘ ki icchina interview lo ila chepparu
A huge boulder was our first guru. It was lying in the middle of the village and people were pondering over removing it some day. We were 18 years then, we lifted it and threw it aside; that’s when the villagers took note of our strength for the first time. The incident was a testimony to our willpower and confidence. We would take out the goats for grazing, and would be dressed in lungis; when the opportunity to compose fights for the movies arrived, we were delighted not because of the job but the chance to move out of the village and wear pants. Fight master Raju supported us and we bought trousers for Rs. 70 for the first time.
