We caught up with Rana Daggubati on the sets of his next Telugu film and the actor was rather forthcoming in speaking out about his much talked about ‘relationship’ with former co-star Bipasha Basu.
You are often referred to as the Casanova of Tollywood...
I think I don’t even know what it exactly means! My movements are not restricted like other actors. I am a friendly guy and people often misunderstand my friendliness for being flirtatious. But when I hear such things, I feel somewhere I am doing something right (laughs)!
Are you friends with your exes?
Am I friend with my exes? Oh yeah, very much!
What about Bipasha?
Bipasha was never my girlfriend. I don’t know where these reports come from. I am seeing someone and I will share the details once I am sorted in my life. No matter what you say, people just believe what they want to believe.
Were you sad after Department tanked at the box office?
Nobody knows what Friday will bring. The reviews for the film were not good but I acquired a lot of working knowledge while shooting for Department. I always wanted to play the role of a cop and my role was appreciated.
What next in Bollywood?
I have been receiving a lot of offers after Department, but nothing has interested me. But I will be rounding up on a couple of projects by the end of next month. I believe in doing one film at a time. I also have plans to produce films in Bollywood. It should be one that can be remade in Tamil and Telugu.
