Want to balance Bollywood and Telugu cinema: Rana Daggubati

As he gears up for his next Hindi release “Department”, actor Rana Daggubati says he wants to concentrate on his Bollywood career without overlooking Telugu cinema.

The 27-year-old debuted in Bollywood alongside Bipasha Basu and Abhishek Bachchan in 2011 film “DMD”. His next, a cop drama, has been directed by Ram Gopal Varma and is expected to hit screens in May. “I am very happy that I have been accepted.

It is great to be noticed in the big ocean of Hindi films. I see so many newcomers coming everyday, they shine once and go away. Thankfully, it did not happen to me. I immediately got a bigger film ‘Department’ which is an action film, a genre which I like very much.

Rana said.

The actor, who plays a cop in the film, says it was a difficult role to play because the character demanded a lot of subtlety.

My character’s name is Shiv Narayan in the film. Every word and every gesture that he has is very controlled.It is extremely intense. It is a completely clean and white character.

Meanwhile, Rana who started his career with Telugu film “Leader” in 2010, is awaiting the release of his next film down South.

I have not really moved away from Telugu. I have been constantly doing films.My next film “Naa Ishtam” with Genelia is out for release in the last week of March. It is a love story of a selfish man. There are only two truths in the world one is selfishness and the other is love and that’s what the story is about.
