Working with YRF a huge responsibility: Gokul Krishna

Director A. Gokul Krishna, who is awaiting the release of his directorial debut ‘Aaha Kalyanam‘, the southern remake of ‘Band Baaja Baaraat‘, says working with a prestigious studio like Yash Raj Films (YRF) is a great responsibility he had to bear as a newcomer.

“There was a huge responsibility on me while working on the remake. More than nervousness or the challenging part to work with such a big studio, I felt the responsibility to live up to the expectations and the standards of the studio. Working with YRF made me responsible,” Krishna told us.

‘Aaha Kalyanam’, which releases on February 21, features Nani and Vaani Kapoor in the lead.

The director, who initially wanted to cast fresh faces, zeroed in on Nani and Vaani as they possessed a “unique” energy which was apt for the film.

Nani reprises the role of Ranveer Singh from the original.

“We auditioned a lot of new faces but I wasn’t happy with any of them. I had watched Nani’s ‘Ala Modalaindi’ and liked the freshness in it. Nani played his character with a unique charm and I thought that was apt for his role in my film,” he said.

Vaani, known for her impressive debut in ‘Shuddh Desi Romance‘, is stepping into the shoes of Anushka Sharma from the original. She plays a wedding planner in the film.

“When we started our film, ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’ hadn’t released and I didn’t know about Vaani. But when I auditioned her, she brought forth a unique energy that was synonymous to her character. Since wedding planning is not a fad in southern India, she had to work hard to do justice to the role,” said Krishna.

He says ‘Aaha Kalyanam’ is made without tampering the soul of the original.
