Excerpts of Pawan Kalyan interview
Is there any projects you
have rejected in the recent times. What do you look for in a film?
I declined two offers recently as the my character and the story
were not meeting my expectations. I look for a good story that would
entertain the audience and be commercially successful. I do not
recommend heroines, but would like a good one to be cast opposite
Is there any actress who fell in love with you?
Antha scene naku ledu! I don't interact much with them, beyond work.
If it so happens in the future, I will let you know though (laughs).
Whats the difference between a good and a bad movie?
A movie is what is a commercial failure as it did not meet the

think, we're making movies for money and career sake. We don't even
show them the movies for free, but why do they idolize us so much.
Now, I've realized my bond with them was formed from the previous
lives itself. We all are born to 'kalammathalli'. If I do have a
next life, I would like to be born as Pawan Kalyan again and serve
my fans with what they expect from me.
People expect your Geetha Arts films to become another Kushi.
Tell us about Trivikram.
The success of the film is not totally in our hands. I always used
