'Record Break' has no resemblance with 'Dangal' despite wrestling backdrop: Nihar Kapoor


'Record Break', directed by Chadalavada Srinivasa Rao and produced by Chadalavada Padmavati under the banner of Sri Tirumala Tirupati Venkateswara Films, will be released in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam and a few other languages on March 8. Nihar Kapoor and Ragdha Iftakar (a model turned actress) will be seen in lead roles. Satya Krishna, Sanjana, Tummala Prasanna Kumar, Shanti Tiwari, Sonia, Kashi Vishwanath and others will also be seen in this film whose story has been written by Anjireddy Srinivas. In his latest interview, Nihar has talked about the film's strength, context, his future plans and more.

'Gangster Gangaraju' is one of my previous projects. Chadalavada Srinivasa Rao garu felt that he had a story that suited my image. The story and the characterization impressed me thoroughly. He has a passion for movies. He makes films that have a social subject and a social concept. 'Record Break is also a patriotic movie.

Coming to the premise of 'Record Break', two orphans named Chanti and Banti grow up in a forest. They are twins. I play one of the twins. We learn wrestling, migrate to the city for a competition and eventually participate in the WWE at the international level.

'Record Break' has commercial elements but it can't be compared with 'Dangal' despite the wrestling backdrop. The journey of two orphans who go on to participate at the international level blends sentimental and commercial values. In places like Rajasthan and Haryana, wrestling competitions are popular. Ours is a Telugu movie that everyone can be proud of. The level of detailing in our movie is different from other movies.

Recently, we went to Karnataka and Chennai to promote our film in Kannada and Tamil. The response in Kannada has been very good. We are also promoting our movie next in Malayalam and Odia. Joshua's action choreography will stand out.

My mother Jayasudha garu has loved the trailer. I am waiting to see what she will say after watching the full movie again. She believes that 'Record Break' has a unique concept.

I will wield the megaphone in the future. I have written scripts and I am trying for both OTT and feature films.
