I want to work with Rajkumar Hirani: Ram Charan
The actor made his Hindi debut through 2013's Zanjeer
Telugu actor-producer Ram Charan says he is ready to explore Bollywood and wishes to work with Rajkumar Hirani.
While Baahubali-fame actor Prabhas and Malayalam star Dulquer Salmaan are working on Bollywood films like Saaho and Karwaan, respectively, asked if he has any favourite director in Bollywood, Ram says, "I am a huge fan of Rajkumar Hirani sir and would love to work with him. He is one of those filmmakers who balances art and commerce in his films. I have also watched a few films of Vishal Bhardwaj's and he makes amazing cinema. Working with him would be such a pleasure."
Ram has already worked in Bollywood as he featured in Zanjeer in 2013. Asked if he has any criteria for his next Bollywood project, he says, "Yes, I tried it earlier and it did not do so well. But if I get something interesting, I will surely give that a try. But this time, I will be looking at a few factors like the director, story, production...When I am targeting an audience out of my comfort zone, I have to be very careful."
Since the actor is quite satisfied with his career in the south Indian film industry, according to him, only a good story would make him "go out of my comfort zone and work in a different language, because honestly, every regional cinema is doing experimental works these days."
