Dhruva Sarja: Overwhelmed to see houseful boards for Pogaru
Thrilled with the opening that Pogaru has got, Dhruva says people are returning to theatres to watch it a second time
Dhruva Sarja's action family entertainer Pogaru, directed by Nanda Kishore, hit the screens on February 19, and the actor took to Twitter to express his elation with the tremendous response the film has been receiving.
Dhruva, who is personally visiting theatres in rounds, tells us, “I am excited with the collection my film is making, and it's exciting to see houseful boards at theatres. It is overwhelming to learn that the film has cash registers ringing, and has collected about Rs 30 crore in three days.”
He compares this response to the initial feedback he got for the Karaabu song. “Initially, people made a lot of comments about the song, but later, they went on to make it a hit. We are getting similar responses to the film. I hear different opinions, but the reports are extraordinary. A few people who watched it initially, came back with their family to watch it again,” adds Dhruva Sarja.
Pogaru, which was bankrolled by BK Gangadhar, has Rashmika Mandanna playing the female lead.
Reacting to the objection raised by the Brahmin Development Board for a sequence that has allegedly hurt the sentiments of the community, Dhruva says, “The film is made for the audience, and if a particular segment has hurt a particular section of people, we are ready to erase it. However, it takes 48 hours for the whole process.”
The Action Prince will now be collaborating with Nanda Kishore for the second time for Dubaari. The film will be produced by Uday K Mehta. Dhruva Sarja plans to start the project immediately. “We plan to start shooting by March-end. This time, it will only get better. I don’t want to just say it, but I want to do it and show everyone. My work should speak for itself,” he emphasises.
