Actor Nandoo says forthcoming Telugu drama “365 Days”, a peek into the life of a couple post-nuptials, helped him understand his wife better and the whole experience had a positive effect on his marriage.
“The movie throws light on the good and bad side of a relationship. It made me realise that for any relationship to succeed, one needs to accept the good and bad in his or her partner. It has had a very positive effect on my marriage,” Nandoo told IANS.
Nandoo is married to singer Geetha Madhuri for over a year now.
In Ram Gopal Varma’s “365 Days”, Nandoo is paired with Anaika Soti.
“If 100 people watch it, I’m sure at least 30 will very closely relate with it. I’ve seen people going though ups and downs in a relationship and for them ‘365 Days’ will be very special,” Nandoo said.
“By the end of the movie, audiences will come to the realisation that a relationship is about simple compromises. It’s a very thought provoking movie,” he said.
Nandoo added the character he plays in the movie took a toll on him.
“I haven’t played anything so serious in my career so far. There was lot of pressure in preparation for this character. As an actor, this film will take me to the next level in my career,” he said.
On working with Varma, he said: “This project marks Ramu sir’s grand comeback to the romance genre. I think it’s his first romantic musical after ‘Rangeela’, and it’s going to be a treat for all those who closely follow his films.
“It’s a special film for me as well. He has spent about Rs.4 crore on the project, and for a song, he spent a whopping Rs.35 lakh,” he said.
For a special song, Nandoo and Anaika spent about 60 hours shooting non-stop.
“We shot for the song for about five days at a stretch. Initially, the idea of a rain song sounded fun, but by the time we finished shooting the song, we were completely exhausted,” he added.
