“I believe that ultimately the film should speak for itself,” he said adding that it applies to everyone – “be it a producer or a star or newcomer.”
Son of producer Kumar Taurani, Girish wanted to become an actor “right from my mother’s womb. Every day has been a step towards it.”
For the opening scene of Prabhudheva-directed “Ramaiya Vastavaiya”, the newcomer had to trim down, which was tough.
“Losing weight was a tough task. I tend to put on weight quickly. My introduction scene was a surfing sequence and I had to be in good shape for that. I got professional help and I started working out and eating clean,” Girish told IANS.
“Ramaiya Vastavaiya”, a remake of Prabhudheva’s “Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana”, which also features Shruti Haasan, is a romantic film with a good dose of family drama.
Not willing to stick to one genre, he said: “I want to do good scripts with good makers. There is no particular genre I am looking for specifically… talks are on for future projects. All I can say is that I want to entertain audiences and make wholesome films.”
“Ramaiya Vastavaiya” is slated for a July 19 release.
