Radha Mohan chooses actors as per the demands of the script. According to him, he ropes in a superstar only if the subject demands it. “I let my script choose the actors and not vice versa. If I have to work with a superstar, then I make it a point to cast one. Why do I need to work with a superstar if there is absolutely no need for his or her presence,” Radha Mohan, whose Gauravam has hit the screens on Friday, told IANS. “It is very important to have the right actor for the right script. One of the most common mistakes in the industry is mis-casting.
I ensure I stay away from it,” added the filmmaker who had once worked with Nagarjuna in his bilingual movie Payanam. “Nagarjuna was needed for Payanam. The script demanded an actor who could pull off the role and convince audiences that he was a suitable pick. It was the role of a major in the army, and I couldn’t possibly rope in a newcomer or a relatively unknown face to play the part,” he said.
