Politics In Script Is As Essential As The Script Itself, Opines Director Pa. Ranjith Cinema News
Pa. Ranjith, who has become one of the most notable and popular young directors in Kollywood thanks to his colossal hit film superstar Rajinikanth in Kabali and the upcoming much-awaited Rajini-starrer Kaala, has insisted that (issues dealing with) politics in a script is as important as the script itself.
Ranjith was addressing newsmen at the meet-the-press event of an upcoming Tamil-Telugu bilingual film titled as NOTA produced by Gnanavel Raja’s Studio Green. “I started my career with the patronage of Studio Green and I’d always remain grateful to Gnanavel Raja. I’m sure director Arima Nambi and Iru Mugan fame Anand Shankar would make NOTA a notable film in Kollywood.
“Vijay, who proved his mettle in last year’s super-hit Telugu film Arjun Reddy, would court success in Kollywood as well. Tamils, who recognize talents, had made films such as Attakathi and Aruvi succeed mainly for their scripts. Vijay Devarakonda might end up having a long stint in Kollywood. Politics in a script is as important as the script itself, according my belief.
“In today’s scenario where more and more Tamil youths are taking to politics in a huge manner, we can’t stay away from politics for a long time. I only hope the youths get to know which brand of politics is ‘right’ and follow it,” said Ranjith and added that he had personally exercised the ‘NOTA’ option during voting at least twice in the past.
