Donning the producer's hat comes with a high level of tension, says actor Aryan Rajesh, who has turned producer for his brother Allari Naresh's forthcoming Telugu comedy "Bandipotu".
"As an actor, one's job is to follow the instructions of the director and act. But as a producer, you're tense mostly, worrying about so many things. Producing a film means lot of planning and co-ordination, and the risks are extremely high," Rajesh told IANS.
He is, however, confident thanks to his late filmmaker father E.V.V. Satyanarayana.
"I've seen my dad direct and produce films. I may not be an expert, but I've learnt from him everything I could to sustain in the industry," he said.
Directed by Indraganti Mohan Krishna, "Bandipotu" is an "out-and-out laugh riot", says Rajesh.
"It's loosely based on the story of Robin Hood, but we've treated it commercially. It's about a conman who robs the rich. The humour will entertain as well as raise some important questions," he added.
The film also features Eesha and Sampoornesh Babu in important roles.
