Ram, who has created a niche for himself in Telugu cinema with films such as “Maska” and “Kandireega,” is all set to expand his market down South. The actor is making his debut in Tamil through a film titled “Yen Endral Kadhal Enben,” directed by Karunakaran. A bilingual, the film will be called “Endukante Premanta” in Telugu and will feature Tamannaah as the female lead in both versions.
About the film, Ram said, “We have completed 60 per cent of ‘Yen Endral Kadhal Enben,' which is a romantic comedy. After waiting for almost eight years for the right script, I'm making my debut in Tamil. ‘Yen Endral Kadhal Enben' is not a dubbed version of ‘Endukante Premanta.' We have shot every scene twice, once for the Tamil version and again for the Telugu version.”
Another interesting aspect is while director Karunakaran, who is from Tamil Nadu, can speak Telugu fluently, Ram, born in Hyderabad but brought up in Chennai, can speak Tamil fluently.
Discloses Ram, “I might have been born in Andhra but I was brought up here. I studied in Chettinad Vidyashram. ‘Yen Endral Kadhal Enben' has several humorous sequences. Punch lines in one language may not be as impressive when delivered in another language. In such cases, we have changed the scenes to ensure that the impact of the idea isn't lost.”
