From ‘Jayam’ to ‘Sye’, ‘Allari Bullodu’ to ‘Ishq’ and ‘Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde’, Nitin has groomed himself as an actor taking both success and failure in his stride.
“My success journey started from Vizag with the film ‘Jayam’ in 2002. The movie became a huge hit and I am thankful to the audience for receiving me so well,” says actor Nitin during his recent visit to the city. Despite hailing from a filmy background (his father N. Sudhakar Reddy is film distributor and producer), Nitin is known for his hard working nature. His films ‘Sye’ and ‘Ishq’ added to his romantic charisma. Beaming with happiness for the success of his recent flick ‘Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde’, the actor said: “I am happy to see tremendous response for the film across the State. In fact, this film has become even more successful than my previous film ‘Ishq’ which was released last year.”
But Nitin gives credit of the cinema to the director, his team and Nitya Menon for starring opposite to him. “I think she was the right choice for the film. For any love story, the girl should be sweet, innocent and charming and Nitya fits the bill perfectly well. Also our onscreen chemistry worked well for both ‘Ishq’ and ‘Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde’.”
His favourite directors are Rajamouli in Telugu and Shankar in Tamil.
Among action, romantic and serious roles, Nitin prefers to act in love stories. “I think my age permits me to act in romantic roles but yes, in future I will do action films.”
Nitin’s next flick is ‘Courier Boy Kalyan’ which is being produced by Gautam Menon. A few years of lean phase made Nitin to become choosy about his projects.
