Mime is in our daily life and with little effort, we can all perfect the art form.
It might be true that we all like to be entertained, but it's also true that we all like to be equally touched by a film.
Rallapalli used to slip in a hundred rupee note into my shirt pocket before I woke up to help me meet my daily expenses. He is a considerate human being and always helped strugglers.
I am happy that I could contribute my bit and enable the use of colloquial Telugu words in mainstream films and literature.
I was born here and have been in love with the colloquial Telangana dialect ever since. I even wrote a play titled 'Grahanam Pattina Ratri' that was set in the heart of the region. It was well received across literary circles.
I am fond of my writing in the film 'Mondi Mogudu Penki Pellam,' one of the first films to feature a mainstream actor like Vijayashanti speaking in Karimnagar-slang.
We can make his work reach youngsters by organising literary events and competitions in schools and colleges. We can also use mainstream media to spread Kaloji's work among the public. Also it's important to honour litterateurs when they are alive; sadly Kaloji never got his due in his lifetime.

Every film I do, I want to leave a signature.
Surrealism is my stamp. I have a post graduate diploma in theatre and I was introduced to this concept and it stuck by me because it speaks of the hypocritical nature of the reality. We are something more inside and I want to portray the pluralities in thought.
What is big cinema? That which earns money.
I cannot do the boy-girl romance, villains etc.; I cannot relish such cinema and I cannot make it.
No one knows which film will be a hit or flop. Film making is a gamble.
It's true that films are made on mere calculations such as fight and item song. If the audience is lucky enough, there will be some story.
In my childhood, we had only one toilet. It was my dream then to have a good bathroom where you can have undisturbed bath.
It is a new trend, and it is here to stay. Unfortunately, if you cannot write punch dialogues, you are not treated as a dialogue writer.
People are waiting for good movies and they are ready to accept them.
Films gave me name, fame and money. But my heart always yearned for literature.
